Say Hi. She’s awesome.

Meet Melinda and Belinda. Belinda was having a bad hair day. I feel her.

Can I pretend that I’m into jelly. I secretly want to be a jelly expert.

Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal

  • 1/2 cup oatmeal
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 pumpkin puree
  • cloves, ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon
  • raisins
  • maple syrup
  • nut butter

Combine oatmeal and water over medium heat.  Cook until it starts to bubble along the sides and stir in the pumpkin.  Add a few small dashes of cloves, ginger (please be careful with the ginger, too much is not good, trust me), and  nutmeg. Use a little bit more of the cinnamon.  Throw in some raisins.  Add in some water depending how you like the consistency.  Enjoy with 2 tsp of maple syrup and nut butter of choice ( I love Nuttzo!)
