Gloomy.

If you look it up in a dictionary, you might see a photo of our weather these past three days: cold, windy, rainy.Gloomy.

My cold-fighting weapons include:

chocolate-oatmeal

A big, warm bowl of Five Minute Chocolate Oatmeal.

And: fleece pants, fluffy blankets, and hot showers. (Hot showers are the best!)

Batman’s cold-fighting weapon:

costco heat dish

The Costco heatdish. I swear, my dogs are like moths. If there is a heat dish or fireplace lit, they will gravitate towards it and reuse to move until someone turns it off. (Batman and Henry still live at my parents’ house. I miss them! They’re close, though, so I visit often.)

When cold, eat… ice cream??

Yesterday morning, the deluge of rain temporarily gave way to a light mist, allowing me to bundle up and go for a run. After breakfast and a hot shower, I actually felt a bit warm and, oddly enough, was craving ice cream.  Tomorrow’s post will be for my ice cream recipe. So, to keep warm while eating the ice cream, you might want to invest in a Costco heatdish of your own.

Batman’s not sharing his.

    Your pups are adorable. Love the heat dish from Costco, I keep thinking about picking one up. Wish they made them portable so I could bring it to the barn and it can go where I go. Lol. That bowl of chocolate oats was fantastic.

    Hey Katie! Just made myself a big bowl of the 5-minute chocolate oatmeal…without chocolate (shock, horror!), because I wasn’t in a chocolatey mood. (I did have a piece of dark chile-cinnamon chocolate later though…guess I still needed it, but in a different form.) It was FANTASTIC! I’ve been running low on tasty lunches I can make with what I have on hand, and so this was PERFECT in every way. Yum! I think I’ll make some more tonight 😉

    I absolutely love your blog! I have been trying so many of your recipes and this is probably my favorite breakfast! I have already made it twice since yesterday (once for breakfast and then for dessert after dinner)! Thanks for all the amazing yummy recipes!
