Today is a new day

I slept until 9:30 this morning!  I am obviously still on West Coast time.

The crisp chill in the air told me it was a perfect morning for pumpkin oats, so I whipped up some for both Brad and I.

Pumpkin Oatmeal (serves 2)

1 cup rolled oats
1 cup water
1 cup almond milk
1/2 cup canned pumpkin
1 sliced banana
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice

Mix water, almond milk, and oats and put in a pot over high heat.  Once the water and milk start to boil, turn heat down to medium and add pumpkin and banana, mixing well.  Cook until oats are the desire consistency (some prefer their oats to be more grainy, some prefer more liquid, I like mine somewhere in the middle).  Top with toppings of choice.

I used 1 Tbsp. almond butter, 1 Tbsp. pumpkin butter, and a little sprinkling of seeds (pepitas and sunflower seeds)

I love how almond butter melts like no other nut butter.

Served with a cup of joy.  That would be pumpkin spice tea with a little pour of almond milk.

It’s going to be a beautiful day!

It would have been a great day for a run, but that will have to wait until tomorrow.  Today is a new day.  🙂
