Lazy Sunday

Wilson keeps trying to convince me that I ought to get another job because I have every night and weekend off. You know what though? No. No way. Not the good life. His argument is that the good life is early retirement, but frankly, I'd rather enjoy bits of the good life where I can now. Like Sunday mornings.

A local radio station has a great program on Sundays (The Sunday Sessions from 10 am - 12pm) that's all acoustic/stripped performances of great alternative songs. WFNX or 101.7 FM in the Boston area. Right now they're playing an acoustic version of The Ting Tings "That's Not My Name." It's awesome.

You know what else is awesome. My mom. That's right. I'm not too proud to say that my mom rocks. Miss SJ put together a care package for me that includes four jars of PB & Co White Chocolate Wonderful and 5 cans of Libby's pumpkin. So I can stop hoarding what I have and use it in delicious albeit every day things like oatmeal.


Over-the-Top Pumpkin Pie Oats
3/4 cup water
dash salt
1/4 cup mix of rolled oats, oat bran, and steel cut oats
1 small banana, sliced
1/2 cup of pumpkin
1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon

Bring water to a boil, add oat mix, salt, and sliced banana. Whisk! Cover and let cook approximately 4-6 minutes, whisking intermittently until the banana "melts" into the oats. Add pumpkin and spices, vanilla at the end, whisk! Pour into bowl. (Make sure bowl is big enough!) 

Optional topping: PB & Co White Chocolate Wonderful and Nature's Path Hemp Seed Granola
(If I had graham crackers or Biscoff cookies, you'd bet your patooty they'd be crumbled on top.)

Fluffy and delicious, oh yes.
