Keepin' It Hot

This was my morning:
Oatmeal with brown sugar and cinnamon.
 Hot coffee and hot tea at work.
Steamed kale and wild rice pilaf for lunch.

Pretzels and Gentle Vinyasa yoga after work.

Baked potato, homemade yellow curry, peas and carrots for dinner.
 Dark Chocolate Almond Clusters from the bulk section at Sprouts. Dangerously delicious.
Another cup of tea on the horizon before bed.

I'm dreaming of the southern hemisphere and flip flops right now. . .

  1. Okay, second time trying to comment…

    It's really cold there! We were in the single digits most of the day today and that was bad enough.

    The clusters definitely look dangerously addictive and that pilaf looks delicious! I could go for both of those right now.

    1. Oh no! Has the comment-disappearing glitch returned? I've experienced that a handful of times. :( Glad this one made it through! It's absolutely frigid, and I'm over it. My energy bill this month will be high. I've never wanted to see a double digit so badly! Soon, I hear!

      The clusters are so good - I definitely can't buy more than five or six at a time, because I will eat them to illness. Ha!

  2. I'm not longer envying your Watercourse Foods, Beet Box or Native Foods. And we can get Vegan Almond Clusters here as well.

    1. It usually isn't this cold. Our winters typically hang out around 40 degrees, so this is definitely gross. Show me your almond clusters, since you've seen mine. Ha!

  3. Yipes, that temp is too much! My California bones are aching at the though. We shiver...a lot...at 55 degrees! That oatmeal warmed us both up, though. :-)

    1. I would love 55 degrees right now! Oatmeal and all foods hot really help!

  4. I cannot even function in that kind of cold!! This sounds weird, but i love making oatmeal with brown sugar and lots of water so it soupy- brothy, just hot breakfast soup :)
    Dinner looks amazing- potatoes and any sauce or gravy is a great comfort food meal. I hope you get some extra sleep this weekend to ward off any remaining germs from school- although maybe they froze and died off!?

    1. I can see how extra water would be good too - I usually leave it a little thick just so I can take a big bite and put on socks / feed Remy / put my lunch into a container. Ha!

      I'm all about the sauce (and I don't mean booze! Ha!) right now. I'm enjoying having both the curry and the miso tahini sauce hanging out in the fridge, ready for application!

      I did sleep in today, and intend to do the same tomorrow! Hopefully that helps keep me healthy!

  5. That -9 is disgusting. I hope you've been able to keep warm. Looks like you've been eating some delicious and warming foods to at least get you through those cold days. I love oatmeal so much and you can't go wrong with brown sugar and cinnamon. The rice pilaf looks really great and your dinner looks so comforting. And I am actually very jealous of those almond clusters. They look really yummy! I could totally go for one of those with a hot cup of tea right now.

    Stay warm my friend!

    1. It's all about hot food right! I did have a salad today, just to try and mix it up, but I'll be back to all hot, all the time tomorrow! I'd recommend the almond clusters, I'm even thinking they shouldn't be to create at home. . .but will I attempt it?! ;)

      I am trying! I hope you're having a great weekend!
