Chocolate Pumpkin Oats + Share TCL!

Quick Updates

We have our first Healthy Thanksgiving Challenge 2010 entry! Click here to check out the challenge and the entry…it’s a goodie!

Oh and in case you missed it, I posted the recipes I promised recently:

In case you need ideas for dinner and stuff.



As for today, I had a brainstorm this morning for breakfast. I like pumpkin oatmeal. I like chocolate pumpkin bread. So why not make chocolate-pumpkin oatmeal!?


Oh yea!


Hot coffee.


Per the usual, my chocolate oats look decadent, but they really aren’t that sweet.


I used unsweetened cocoa powder and only added a little maple syrup as my natural sweetener.


On top: flaxseed meal, walnuts, cacao nibs.


Hello beautiful!


I made hubby and me love-bugs…err…love-mugs today full of hot tea. He had Tulsi and I had Yogi Echinacea.


Yogi tea quote of the day: “You are infinite.


Which Wich for lunch. I haven’t had this in awhile since I don’t like to order sandwiches out (because I don’t like to buy things out that I can easily make at home), but there’s something about the crispy-edged bread that is so appealing.

I had the Chicken Philly (which was surprisingly light – I think because they used deli meat) with provolone, lettuce, and tomato.


Someone was sleepy today. That’s what he gets for being so restless the other night! lol


Hubby was in charge of dinner again. He made grilled chicken with that Bahamian blackened seasoning, micro-baked potatoes (sweet for me, russet for him) and grilled broccolini.


I enjoyed my sweet potato with a bit of real butter and a dusting of brown sugar.

I hope you find my blog useful and a good resource for not only you, but for your family, friends, and co-workers. I’m hoping that the changes I’ve made over the last couple weeks will make my blog more share-friendly so you can better utilize my posts and recipes.

  1. I work in an office! An awful office. It’s a Medical Records office of a small hospital. We’re in the basement because none of the other floors can support all the files and we’re squished in like sardines. I have people brushing up against the back of my chair about every 10 minutes and have cold air constantly blowing on me due to my menopausal co-worker.

    Can you tell that it’s not my ideal working environment? 😉
