Oatmeal for dinner + more new products

On Wednesday night, my friend Aleta brought these little things over for dessert:


They really were cute and tiny!


I’m not usually a chocolate + mint fan but these were really good. I have a few more left but they are staying safely in Courtney’s freezer, not mine 🙂

For lunch yesterday, I had another of the soups I received from Dr. McDougall’s.


Minestrone is one of my favorite soups. I was a little worried since I wasn’t a big fan of the split pea of this line.



It was delicious! Way better than that crap I accidentally bought the last time.

After I had lunch, I immediately started thinking about what I was going to have for dinner. I have a few random things at home to use up but since I have been drinking green monsters for breakfast this week, I’d really missed oats.

Problem solved – oats for dinner!


I made them special on the stovetop 🙂 I used 1/2 cup oats with 1 cup of water, stirred in 1/2 cup pumpkin and added pumpkin pie spice + vanilla extract before serving it in the bowl and topping it with peanut butter and pumpkin butter.

Unfortunately, I used the last of the pumpkin butter 😦


I really love this brand and I’m so glad it’s local!


This might be a good opportunity to get some of the apple butter now. Mmm…
