Morning Time

2.01.2011

this morning we had juicy grapefruit and steel cut oats [oatmeal].
i had only tried grapefruit once when i was a kid and at that instance
made up my mind that i don't like it! too sour, too tart!
well half of landon's heart is made up of grapefruit and
he eats it like an art! it's his absolutely favorite so
what kind of wife would i be if i didn't give it another try?
well i had one this morning and loved it! so perfect and i'm craving
another one but i want to save it and not eat them all in one day! :)



and about those steel-cut oats...
my mother always made this for breakfast and it's one of my favorite
breakfasts to keep me warm [it was -10 this morning! yikes!]
steel-cut oats take a bit longer to make [30 minutes] but are healthier because they
are unrefined and have not been precooked. they are more of the
natural grain of oats, and much better in my opinion!

this week's menu consists of:
tonight: salmon, long-grain brown rice, & roasted veggies
wednesday: butternut squash risotto
thursday: meatloaf & mashed parmesan red potatoes
friday: homemade lasagna
saturaday: homemade PIZZA night!
sunday: fettuccine asparagus/bacon/mushrooms/tomatoes pasta

yum! Looks like a delicious breakfast!

Brittany said...

Thanks! and Becca, I usually get them at Winco where you pour your own oats/pasta/nuts section [it's super cheap and 1 cup is 4 servings!]
but I'm guessing it should be at Broulums too in the organic section with the self-pour container things?! :)
