First thing today, a friend shared this link with me. A certain Georgia lawmaker is asserting that allowing gays to serve in the military is akin to allowing thieves and drug dealers to join up.
Thanks for helping further the stereotype that Georgia is a state full of uneducated rednecks, Rep. Franklin.
Without going on a tangent, I’m going to say that there should be a mandatory intelligence test for people who: run for office, vote, and reproduce. If there was an minimum IQ one had to possess before partaking in any of these 3 things, the world would be a better place.
On to happier thoughts! Breakfast.
This may be weird, but I go to bed thinking about what I’m going to eat for breakfast.
Today, having remembered an immersion blender can be used for more than soup, I was excited to try some oatmeal. This is the most solid food I’ve had so far!
I’m sure the toppings were awesome…
…but that yummy, well-dressed bowl of oatmeal was for Mom.
My slurp-able reality looked more like this:
No matter. It was still good.
Like warm blueberry pie.
Blueberry Pie Oatmeal
- 3/4 C oatmeal (I used McCann’s Irish Oats)
- 1/2 C unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- 1/2 C water (adjust as needed)
- 1 banana
- 1/2 C blueberries
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/8 tsp coconut extract
- shake of salt
Place first 4 ingredients in medium pot. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, for 6-7 mins.
When almost done, add remaining ingredients and stir to combine. Cook 2-3 additional mins, or until done. Add additional liquid as needed.
Remove from heat. Using an immersion blender, blending oats until bananas and blueberries are pureed into oatmeal (it WILL turn blue!).
Spoon into bowls and add topping of your choice (I used bananas and dark chocolate chunks).
Makes 2 servings.
