Since it seems like forever since I have done a food post… I will update you with what’s been on my plate the last few days!
My favorite breaky – fast, easy and delish!
There has also been some more OIAJ (Oats in a Jar)
More oats (I have finally figured out why everyone loves them so much – it’s just the right mix of toppings!)
Toppings – banana, chia seeds, coconut peanut butter, macca and a few chocolate chips! So yummy!
Mom’s muffins have also made an appearance!!
Other non breakfast meals lately…
Dave was nice enough to make 2 huge pots of his specialty stew for a program I was running!! So good!
It’s loaded full of veggies… and stewing beef… The pictures don’t do it ANY justice… it’s amazing!
I also made some soup for the soul… Turkey and Veg!
It was delish – especially served with Irish Soda Bread
there has also been tamales… amazing tamales that we bought from the farmers market… I decided I would make some of my own until I realized tamales – LARD… and lots of it. EEK… probably why they are so mouth watering… (with sautéed kale)
In the mix there has also been berry/banana soft serve… so good!
and I tested out a new juice – I didn’t enjoy this flavor, but the GREEN one was delish!! Super thick – I had to add water too it, but it was tasty!!
That’s all for eats (of course I ate more than this, but these were my highlights!!)
I got two beautiful, wonderful, birthday surprises yesterday too!
Beautiful Orchids from Jess
How beautiful are these???
She came over and we went for a long walk. Part way through our walk, someone told us that a cougar (mt.lion) had been spotted about 10 mins from us! EEK!! We quickly turned around and walked the other direction… Can you imagine running into a 130 pound cat, alone in the bush?? No thank you!
When we got home I had a message that I had a spa gift certificate under my mat at the front door!! A pedicure from my good friend in Alberta! YES!! What more could I ask for!?? (Thanks Amanda!)
Oh yah? The message from some family friends of them singing me happy birthday!! So great!
It was a great day! Thank you to everyone for all my lovely messages, my twitter went crazy and my inbox was full of sweet messages.
Have a fantastic Tuesday!!
Those are the BESTEST friends ever it sounds! Sounds like you had a great day, except for almost being devoured. ROFL! God spared you...ha ha ha..OK I will stop.ReplyDelete
WOW! I don't ever eat oatmeal but you make me want to! Right combination of toppings indeed, it looks amazing!ReplyDelete
And yes, that orchid is gorgeous! Such beautiful colors. :-)
I love the new blog colors! Very springy and cheerful!ReplyDelete
I suck at growing orchids - my ex-bf LOVED growing orchids and was quite good at it. They are very hard to deal with and time consuming but he had a natural knack. =)
That's funny you had tamales cause Marc brought some home yesterday, too. I love tamales but haven't eaten them in a while. I am searching right now for a vegan recipe... but I don't know how authentic they will be.
Yes, happens... A joke for you peoples! What's a chimney sweep's most common ailment? The flue. viageraReplyDelete
It all looks good, especially the stew. Now I'm hungry! :-)ReplyDelete
Just catching up on blogs... HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I hope it was fabulous! You look gorgeous in the pictures. And I LOVE the "advice" on the green card... too funny!ReplyDelete
That soup and the soft serve both look TO-DIE-FOR!!!!ReplyDelete
Love the new colors!ReplyDelete
I can slmost smell that stew cooking. It would be perfect for the bone chilling day here!ReplyDelete
Glad you had a happy birthday, things only get better from here! Also love your blog look, its lovely. I actually changed my header too. New starts :)

OMG I love the new layout!!!! sooo pretty!ReplyDelete
ok so i just did an entire post today about dairy, being DF, the whole bit dispelling myths, etc..i think you may like it!
Happy Birthday to YOU! I love the new look of your blog too. Very colorful and fun.ReplyDelete
Your eats look so tasty. I love that you always make something different for breakfast (or at least somewhat different). I am a creature of habit, and ALWAYS have oat bran with pumpkin and PB, I need to switch it up soon, I'm finally getting sick of it :)
Glad you are safe from the lurking mountain lion!
Everything looks yummy!!ReplyDelete
I love orchids!!
Mmmmyeah oats are pretty much AMAZING.ReplyDelete
I've never tried the blue superfood flava, I'm obsessed with the green one though.
I heart OIAJ! Yum!ReplyDelete
And so many pretty colors and flowers over here. Woo hoo for spring!!! :-D
Pretty new blog, girlie! LOVE the orchid! Never tried tamales, but heard they're pretty insanely good, I had no idea the LARD made them tasty....lol.ReplyDelete
