Other times, I’m really observant, and pick up on every little thing. My mom even tells me I read into body language and the like far too much. She’s usually right, but I’m not talking about body language right now.
I’m talking about oats.
And then I also noticed that I’d just started using quick oats for them instead of old fashioned due to my grocery shopping whoopsie.
Thus, I am drawing the conclusion that overnight oats are better with quick oats versus old fashioned.
Do you notice every little thing, or are you in your own little world the majority of the time?
This morning’s bowl followed right in line with the past two by being simply ah-mazing. The same base as Wednesday except more quick oats in place of the Peppy Kernels. And a boatload of cinnamon.

I messed around with the ponies here a bit before leaving. The daughter (long haird, I think we’re naming her Mia) is really quite a sweetheart. I think the mama will warm up soon – she’s friendly but she’d rather eat her hay then come up to you. Mia would stuff herself in your pocket if she could.
I also stopped to see my boy, leaving early enough to give myself time to take him for a walk rather than just graze. We have an outdoor at the barn, but it’s sort of secluded away from everything, which can be a bit nerve racking.
It’s also not fenced in yet, which is the main reason I haven’t ridden in it yet, but I wanted to get him used to being out there alone. He behaved himself quite well. I think he got a kick out of the fact that the grass bordering it was almost as tall as he was – it’s grown a lot from this photo, and hasn’t been hayed yet! I re-did his braids to keep him cool. He’s becoming so well-mannered lately, I’m impressed. And by golly, I think he likes seeing me 😉
Lunch was another bulgur cold salad that I made yesterday. This one contained bulgur, basil, greek yogurt, cinnamon, nutmeg, apricot jam, chopped apricots, and pecans. I also added in some chickpeas for more oomph. I liked the flavors in this, but it was a bit dry – needed more dressing! I also had a red plum.
And the Snyder’s 8 grain pretzels ended up being saved for my afternoon snack.
Oh, and don’t forget about the iced coffee I splurged on again this week. Whoops. Hey, if my boss is sending me there while I’m out getting my bread, how on earth can I resist? I was out of cream or milk at work.
Speaking of bread, I was obviously chomping at the bit to get some of this delicious loaf in me. So, I went the easy road for dinner. A seitan sammie containing seitan, goat cheese, cranberry-orange-nut sauce, and lettuce. On toasted bread, but that really doesn’t matter because while the snap peas were microwaving I went outside to play with the ponies some more so it was cold by the time it was consumed anyways.
‘Night boys and girls!
