Sweet Oatmeal

I had every intention of bloggling yesterday, but by the time I had a moment to sit down, it was past 10, and I was exhausted. As I said below, I'm still catching up on the lack of sleep from this weekend! Rather than recap yesterday's meals, I'm just going to start fresh with today's. It's a dreary day here so when I woke up I wanted a comforting bowl of oats. I made my oats today with vanilla almond milk, half of a very ripe banana, cinnamon, and almond butter. 

The oats were great, but a bit too sweet for my liking. I'm running low on groceries so I tried a new kind of Almond milk. I bought single servings of Pacific Natural Foods, Low fat Vanilla Almond Milk awhile ago so I used one of them for my oats. I tasted the milk on its own and I really liked it. But combined with very ripe banana, it made my oats super sweet. Next time, I'll only use half of a container I think. 

I have to work today for a few hours. I'm going to be assistant managing the coffee & crepe shop where I used to work! This is only a meantime job, while I figure out what I am going to do. I need money though so this works out perfectly. The owners are very sweet and accommodating and I love everyone that works there. I need to pack a lunch and get ready for work. I hope everyone is enjoying much better weather than we are. I keep waiting for summer to come, but instead we have had a lot of rain lately!
