The best thing about living in the house so far is not walking down three flights of stairs to let Charlie out. The second best thing about living in the house is having a stoop on which to eat oatmeal in the morning.
Just kidding. It’s way too cold out for me already. I just go out there to snap photos. See you April. I’m in hibernation.
Vegan pumpkin oatmeal
- 1 mashed banana
- 1/2 cup oats
- 2 tbsp pumpkin puree
- sprinkle of cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves
- 1 tsp chia seeds
- 1/2 cup milk
Combine in a bowl and microwave for 1 minute. Add optional toppings: shredded coconut, chia seeds, ground flax seeds or maple syrup.
The weather’s weird here in Charlotte. It’s chilly (in the high 50s is chilly to me) in the morning but then still creeps up into the 80s midday. Dressing for it is impossible. Eating for it is tricky too. Do I want warm, filling oatmeal in the morning? Yes. Do I want a light, refreshing smoothie in the heat of the afternoon? Yes. Make up your miiiiiiind.
