Well loves if you read my last post, you know how I feel about today.

Is it Friday yet?

But you also know there is a part of Wednesday that is a bit exciting.

You guessed it.

I actually have eaten some amazing food, no thanks to my cooking skills, but Matt and I had been invited to one of his co-workers for dinner. Since he is still new at the job and this was the first time I met them, I decided to not take any pictures.

But let me tell you. The meal was amazing.

Cowboy caviar (which is seriously crack in a bowl – heeellllooo avocados), grilled zucchini, grilled portabella mushroom topped with garlic spinach and cheese, artichokes, oven roasted potatoes, and bbq chicken. Seriously all cooked to perfection. I ate so much food, but I seriously could not stop, it was so good. It was a fun night overall and we had a great time.

But since I can’t show you any of that deliciousness, I have a few things that I can show with you.

Oatmeal has came back into my life. It tends to happen when I have these laying around.

I actually stole this jar from work.

I made a base of vanilla cinnamon overnight prOATs and topped it off with some frozen banana, local granola, shredded coconut and Enjoy Life chocolate chips. Because we all need a little chocolate in the morning.

This got me on an oatmeal kick, so I had them again the next day.

Since I was still kind of on a coconut kick I added coconut butter and shreds not only while cooking, but also another huge spoonful of Sweet Spreads cinnamon roll butter and more shredded coconut.

(side note: this was transferred into a jar for travel convenience shortly after)

And to keep trucking with coconut…

It kept coming with my waffles. Since we’re not actually getting any snow in Arizona, I like the effect shredded coconut gives my food. Kinda like snow right?

Ok, maybe not at all, but we can pretend. It still tasted pretty dang delicious.

Then I started getting lazy with my breakfasts, but sometimes simple is the tastiest.

Because sometimes a bagel with cream cheese and jam is all you want. And sometimes you don’t even make it pretty.

It’s not all breakfast around here though.

I did manage to whip up a simple tuna veggie nori roll that was pretty tasty.

This was later doused in tahini. I’ve been obsessed with the stuff lately!

And for dessert?

Well even though my poppy seed cake wasn’t a total success.

It also wasn’t a total failure.

I mean someone had to eat it. Might as well be me!

Speaking of dessert.

This happened tonight.

And it was pretty wonderful

Well loves, I hope you all have a great week.
