A Blueberry is not a Pumpkin

Pin It!

Hello chocolate chips!

Happy Thanksgiving! It’s a cooold one here. I just got back from a miserably-windy run (“feels like 31” with 30mph wind), and now I’m looking forward to a warm breakfast.

The house smells like cinnamon, as I made vegan Pumpkin Baked Oatmeal for my whole family!

Well, everyone except the little sister, that is. Hers is blueberry-cobbler boatmeal, since she doesn’t like pumpkin. Sacrilege, right? No worries: I love pumpkin enough for the both of us!

Today, I am thankful for ____________

I am thankful for Fs. Family, friends, and… fudge babies. Now that I think about it, I’m just thankful for all of you, in general. Everyone who takes the time out of his/her day to leave me a comment… do you know how much it means to me??

In short, if you’re reading this, I’m thankful for YOU!

  1. I’m thankful for SO much! The opportunity to go back to school, my health, my family, my lovely boyfriend and our sweet doggies, to have all my needs met (even if all my wants aren’t always met!), and for my blog and the outlet it is providing me! 🙂

    Down here in Austin we’re still in the dang 70s… till this afternoon!

    Happy Thanksgiving, Katie!! xoxo

    Love the idea of Blueberry boatmeal! Did you just subsitute blueberries for the pumpkin in the recipe? You are so sweet and even though we don’t have Thanksgiving in the UK, I’m thankful for family, friends and blogs especially yours. 🙂

    Happy Thanksgiving, Katie!

    I wish we had such a holiday to show how thankful we are for the little (and not so little) things in life but since we don’t I will just pretend to be American for a day 🙂 . So I am thankful for my family (dog included 😛 ), for true friendship, for my obstinacy and last but not least for all the wonderful people the blog world has met me with.

    Thank you for making me feel like a part of this!


  18. I’m thankful for SO much, I can’t even begin to list everything! Right now I’m thankful that my parents surprised me with a plane ticket so I could fly home and spend the holidays with them 🙂

    Happy Thanksgiving, Katie!
