I made my first OIAJ today!  Actually, I made it last night.  I read about it on KERF and have anxiously awaited my chance to enjoy some as soon as I got to bottom of one of my nut butters.

That day was yesterday 🙂

I used the remaining tablespoon of peanut butter with half a banana, 1/4 C old-fashioned oats, 1/4 C plain yogurt (homemade!), 1/2 C milk and 1/2 tablespoon flax seeds.   Mixed all those together last night, covered it up and stuck it in the fridge.

Today AFTER my run (chose to have just coffee and half a banana before–lesson learned!), I grabbed it, added some toppers:  2 tablespoons of Susy’s granola and some Honeyville whipped pumpkin spice honey.  I nuked it for just 30 seconds to take the chill off, and the lukewarm oatmeal is actually pretty good, since it’s getting warmer here.  OIAJ is SO good!  I love the extra peanut butter flavor!

On a side note, see my chives?  They are actually growing now since Zorro (one of our two cats who are currently living up in Buffalo with Andrew and his parents during our move-process) isn’t here to snack on it!

I’ll be taking a short hiatus this weekend…going to visit Andrew in East Aurora and visit some open houses!  I’m bringing the camera so I can document some of our weekend and post when I get back home.  I’m really excited to drive up with Andrew’s mom and sister, Abigail, who just finished her freshman year at Penn State!

Heather will be home holding down the fort for me and enjoying some much-needed quiet time.

For all you praying people out there (and I know most of you are!), please say a quick prayer for our house!  We have a second showing Saturday morning and our first open house Sunday.

Happy Friday!

  1. That looks so good and filling! Just what you needed after our hot workout this morning. Love it that you included my granola in the mix.
