I’ve returned home from that last week and a half of work tired and with a cold. But it’s OVER! Back to a normal schedule please.
Despite me thinking that yesterday the holidays were over, every flight out west was jammed to the gills. I managed to get the very last seat on a flight to LAX which is not SFO but close enough (out of almost 300 seats on the plane – that’s a coup!) and spent a good part of the flight watching Dr. Oz on the TV. I don’t usually watch daytime TV, but the offerings are pretty darn awful and Dr. Oz was the pick o’ the litter imho. Unfortunately every time I watch his show I learn too many things and freak out about my lack of fiber/too much salt/lip balm addiction. Yesterday was about healthy foods. What could be so bad? Today I’m waiting for Whole Foods to open to see if they have ground chia seeds. That’s what can happen!
Yes, chia seeds are the wonder food and I will now hunt them down. They made muffins with them on the show so I’ll let you know how they turn out. This morning, in an effort to get back to healthy food eating habits (unlike working in airports where there is no healthy food) I made oatmeal. I hate oatmeal. It tastes fine, it’s just wall paper paste and won’t easily go down the old gullet. But needs must so I found an oatmeal recipe (yes I needed a recipe) and made steel cut oats for the first time. Voila! We have a winner. I added cinnamon, apples and a bit of maple syrup and ate it up. Tomorrow might be bananas and pecans. We shall see. The world of steel cut oats has just opened for me.
Crafty-wise I’ve got nothing. Maybe some new flannel pj bottoms for you tomorrow? A bit of knitting? I’ll see what that good breakfast can do for me.
