I have tons of fresh fruit in the house, tons! There will be no need to resort to the frozen blueberries for the rest of the week, so today I had a yogurt & strawberry smoothie for my pre-swimming snack. Somehow, I still managed to get out of the house 10 minutes later than I wanted to. Arghhh!!!!
After my swim, I had the steel-cut outs I made the night before. Making these oats was a struggle, let me tell ya. My first try was in the microwave, but they didn't even seem to be cooked properly so I searched on the net and found this great site. That, however, resulted in a burnt pan and it all had to be thrown out. Normally, I would have given up, but I have no regular oatmeal in the house so I had to try again. Luckily, I was successful on the third try!
It's basically sauteed bacon (minus the bacon fat) and onions with a broth made of the pasta water, chicken broth seasoning and fresh spinach. With the broth, it's almost like a spaghetti soup and I enjoyed every last bite of it!
Any Reading?I haven't done any yet, but I'm planning to as soon as I finish typing this up!
Let's go reading, everybody!
