A Busy Sunday

September 30, 2014

I spent the first part of the day painting my bedroom, and the second part of the day working at the Food Truck at a Church Festival. It was a full and busy day, and I almost forgot to eat! That seriously NEVER happens!

I am paining my bedroom a cream color, and I am painting it over a deep red. This paint job also includes the ceiling. After getting the four walls done and about a 1/3 of the ceiling done, it was time to clean up and head out to work. When I came home, Mike had finished the ceiling for me! I was ecstatic!!  A girl can only paint so much!

I am hoping to spend the next two days finishing up all of the extra’s. I have a curtain rod to paint, the toilet room to paint, curtains to hang, and pictures to hang. I’m excited for this project to be complete!

I really need to go to the store today. My menu was limited yesterday based on what I could find in the house!


Warm Cinnamon Apples, Raisins, Oatmeal

    Hi Ashley,

    I use all sorts of differnet Oatmeal because I like to try new things, but for the most part I use the Quaker Quick Cooking Oats.

    I use 1/2 Cup of Oatmeal, I add one packet of sweetener, usually Raw Stevia, (or I add a few drops of flavored stevia), 1/4 tsp of cinnamon and 1/4 tsp of vanilla. I then add 3/4 – 1 Cup of boring water and stir. I let it sit for 1 – 2 minutes, then it’s perfect!

    It is soooo good with the Warm Cinnamon Apples on it! You could add in a few chopped Walnuts or Raisins too, but obviously thats adds a few calories.

    Hope this helps!


  2. HI There! I just came across your blog via Pinterest. Your day of foods look great and will help benefit my own meal preparation. I want to try the warm cinnamon apples tomorrow morning. How do you make your oatmeal? Is it an instant pack or steel cut? also do you make it with water or milk? Thanks for your time!
