Oat bran in a jar

I haven’t done oats in a jar in forever and last night when I saw how little was left in this particular jar, I decided it was about time!


It ended up being oat bran in a jar! I cooked 1/3 cup oats with 1/3 cup Silk almond milk and 1/3 cup water. I totally meant to add flax but I forgot!

Topped with a sliced banana 🙂

004Do I even need to say how good this was? Great way to start off a relaxing morning at home (I took off work today)!

006I enjoyed two cups of coffee with more almond milk before getting started on my errands and chores for the day.

I got pretty hungry by 11:30, so I went ahead and made lunch. I had a little bit of everything I was craving, including lots of leftovers!

007Leftover falafel (with hummus), couscous, asparagus and sweet potato cornbread.

After lunch, I wanted something sweet and this ripe, juicy pear was just the ticket 🙂

009I’m hoping to get Suzie outside for a walk soon because it’s so pretty out and I need my Vitamin D.

Tonight, Josh and I are going out to dinner (not sure where yet) and then we are going to a friend’s house to play some board games – can’t wait!

Hope you enjoy the day too!

    Thanks so much for your comment on my new blog project. I really appreciate the support!

    Yum, I LOVE Oats in a Jar! My biggest problem is getting the jars empty enough in time to use before my husband throws them out! 😉
