Vacation going awesome! πŸ˜€ Lots of great food and goggling over crazy gymnasts flipping around on the TV [!] screen.

Anyway, Wednesday’s breakfast:

I found this granola bar while exploring the pantry [SO MUCH FOOD IN THERE] one day and have been excited to add this to my oats ever since! However, I was expecting it to be crunchy [well..the label saids "crunchy and chewy"!] but it wasn’t 😦 I guess I mistaken it for the other kind we used to buy from Costco! But the bar was great–a little too sweet though.

List of stuff:

  • 0.5 cup Quaker oats
  • 0.75 cup water
  • 0.25 cup soy milk
  • 1 tsp almond powder [it’s used to make this almond drink]
  • bit of almond extract
  • two handfuls blueberries
  • 1 tbsp cashews
  • 1 tbsp walnuts
  • 0.5 Nature Valley Sweet & Salty Peanut Bar [but I ended up eating the other half after πŸ˜› ]

    Couldn’t really taste the almond–but I could definitely smell it! πŸ˜€

    Lunch:

    Congee! I guess it’s kinda like risotto, except without butter and parmesan…and probably without broth as well? πŸ˜› But it was great–haven’t had mom’s congee in ages! Too bad I fell asleep after my run and when I woke up there was like…this tiny bit at the bottom of the pot! πŸ‘Ώ

    Dessert–expensive stuff! [Love it when parents spoil me πŸ˜€ ]

    The coconut milk was too coconutty though–so I diluted it with water. Mom made this again [we had a huge bag of this stuff] yesterday with almond paste–AWESOME. If it wasn’t near bed time I would have eaten the whole pot πŸ˜€

    Can’t wait to watch more gymnastics tonight!
