Kayaking on Buffalo Lake…

(pics to follow, wrong camera at home)


It was a great weekend!   For the most part we ate healthy, and kayaked many miles around the lake checking out beaver dams, and cabins we wished we owned!

Well I better go, so I can get back out there!

Overnight Oats in a Jar (OOIAJ)

For once I planned ahead, and finally made overnight oats in a jar again.  I have been thinking of them a lot lately, however, it is usually when it is too late to make them for the meal I want! … like 9am when I am wanting something to eat NOW!

Overnight Oats in a jar mixSo last night I got out a mason jar, as I didn’t have any nut butter jars empty, no worries, as I faked it!  Marantha Dark Chocolate Almond Butter… sigh… true love!

Into the Jar went:

  • 1/3 cup Large Oat Flakes
  • 2/3 Almond Milk
  • 1 scoop Chia Seeds
  • Dark Chocolate Almond Butter

Ready for the Fridge...

I spent the night dreaming about all the wonderful flavours of peanut butter from Peanut Butter and Co.  I had bid on a sampler The Big Six at #TGFA… only to be outbid at the last minute :(  I then frantically spent the evening trying to find things to bid on that were still going AND shipping to Canada.  I did end up winning an auction in the end.  It was an amazing fundraiser, and Janetha G deserves a round of applause!!  In the end with her guidance the online community raised $26,432, through auctions and monetary donations.

…and I woke up to this! :)

Yummy Oats in a Jar


YUM!  I love Overnight Oats in a Jar!  After adding a little Peanut Butter Granola, and a diced apricot, I dived right in!

Cool Morning Deliciousness!
