First off, I am endlessly thankful for your wishes regarding Cornell! You are all so supportive and wonderful.
I started off this Saturday with a smile on my face, for it’s every blogger’s favorite, Oats in a Jar!
Cinnamon Raisin Swirl PB jar and banana pumpkin oats! Now, this was my third time trying to oh so famous OIAJ technique. Yes it was a charm, however; the only time I’ve truly been blown away by OIAJ was my first attempt. It was also with Cinnamon Raisin Swirl, but it was just so much better the first time. I’m not saying I didn’t like it this time, though… Of course I showed that empty jar who’s boss.
Yesterday, I made some of the Everythingtarian’s Vegan Pumpkin Molasses Cookies for the second time. They are sooooo good.
….I spy with my little eye a missing cookie… 😉
I followed her recipe, except I omitted the sugar coating, ginger (we didn’t have any 😦 ), and oil. To bind the wet ingredients, I used Chobani 2% in lieu of 1/3c canola oil… making the cookies not so vegan, but I’m fine with that. My family loves these cookies!
To keep up with the Chobani trend, I present to you yesterday’s breakfast and afternoon snack-
Banana Oats with a dollop of Honey Chobani and a Sunland PB drizzle.
It was very tasty, but the yogurt kind of masked the flavor of the oatmeal. I prefer a grainy taste to dairy when it comes to my morning bowl of oats. Regardless, it was delicious.
After school and before I got my Bette Crocker on, I ate the rest of my Honey Chobani and some cucumber.
I’ve gotten several comments asking what camera I use. Thank you all for the amazing compliments on my photographs! It warms my heart.
I shoot with this bad boy-
Canon PowerShot SD790 IS
I love it. It has great macro and digital macro features. All I need for those meal closeups!
Happy Holidays! Enjoy your break and spend time with those who are dearest to you! Volunteer and help those less fortunate. Do a random act of kindness everyday, if you can!
