I didn’t realize, until I took the picture, how many circles there were in the picture!
- Pancake: Bartlett pears, wheatberries, oatmeal, cinnamon, vanilla extract, rice milk + strawberry yogurt on top
- In the bowl: glutinous rice balls, red beans + millet + pearl barley, more strawberry yogurt
- In the cup: rice milk + 2% milk
Best breakfast I’ve had so far! It was just enough to keep me full. For some reason, I’m extra hungry when I come home for the holidays!
Putting wheatberries in the pancake made the whole thing much more chewy–which, by the way, is awesome.
And rice balls + yogurt = BEST THING EVER. Maybe I should bring a bag of glutinous rice flour back to school!
In the afternoon:
I’m still a little jet lag so I need this to stay awake! This is going to be so disastrous for me when I go back to school…
Have been doing a lot of snow shovelling–I’m pretty sure altogether there’s been about 2-3 feet of snow, which is more snow than I have ever seen in my life! Driving is absolutely horrible since I keep getting stuck in the driveway!
Check out the backyard!
Now imagine the pool completely covered with snow, it was pretty much level with the ground at one point! Wish I had gotten a picture of that…
Anywhoo–out to lunch soon!

Oatmeal #141: Irish Cream Oatmeal
- 2 tsp Bailey’s Irish Cream Liqueur, 1 tsp instant coffee, 0.25 cup milk, 0.75 cup water, handful almonds & pine nuts, dash cinnamon, 1 tbsp wheat berries, 1 small banana
This is my first cup of Irish cream "coffee"! I saw the bottle of Bailey’s on the kitchen counter and my mom told me it was for putting in coffee…so naturally, the first thing I thought of was oatmeal.
Only 2 tsp of the liqueur–but I could smell/taste it in every bite! Definitely will be having a variation of this later on.
- grapes, almonds, almond extra, almond powder, wheatberries, milk, cinnamon
No banana in the house day #1! Good thing there were grapes, and good thing I had the foresight to wash an entire bag the night before so I wouldn’t have to wash any more the next morning!
I definitely like red grapes better than the green or the black kind. So much crunchier and sweeter! Which kind do you guys like better?
Christmas! December 26, 2008Posted by oatmeal in Breakfast, Dinner.

One day late!
Meant to post yesterday–but didn’t feel like it
Cards for my parents! I realized yesterday morning, as I was drawing the card on the left, that I can only draw profiles…good thing I don’t plan on making a living off being an artist!
Oatmeal #140: Christmas Oatmeal
Playing with food at its finest 😄
- glutinous rice balls, wheatberries, 0.25 of a small candy cane, sweet walnut soup, milk
Mom made the dough, but I rolled the rice balls myself! Took me an hour to finish rolling out the entire dough–but I’d rather be doing that than my homework!
Christmas eve ice wine:
In a chinese tea cup! My family is classy 😀
Buttered corn, stuffing, turkey + gravy, scallopped potatoes & yams, rice + gravy
Wish I could eat like this everyday!
Is anyone actually brave enough to go Boxing Day shopping? 😄
Giant Oatmeal Entry December 24, 2008Posted by oatmeal in Breakfast, Lunch, Snack.
Tags: almonds, cashews, chocolate, wheatberries
It is giant because it’s a catch-up post! 😀
- wheatberries!!, white chocolate chips, almonds, cashews, cinnamon
+ hazelnut mocha
I have finally hopped on the wheatberry train! A very chewy train, I might add [does that even make sense?]
And having chocolate chips in my oatmeal makes my mornings exciting!
DUMPLINGS! [I had 3 bowls of that stuff in total–would have had more, but we had to go out 😦 ]
Every time I have these, capital letters and exclamation marks are used, because they are awesome!
I added a shitake mushroom and some tofu thing, plus some fish thing 😛 I should find out what those are called!
The day before my orgo final:
I made exam art! The molecule depicted above is ethylene 😀
The rest of the other stuff:
Too lazy to describe every single one of them 😄
Oh and there was this:
I documented the oatmeal making process! 😄 Too bad it was a failed experiment!
Yeah…didn’t taste that good…the only thing that saved it were the PB and the peaches…
To finish off:
It was so cold that everything in my fridge was frozen 😄
The snow over here is ridiculous! I have never seen so much snow in Vancouver! There’s probably two feet of snow by now. Crazy!
What’re people doing for Christmas eve?!
