Somehow, I always forget titles.
My current favorite morning activity involves two things: Breakfast and blogs.
A typical morning for me starts when I am clawed awake by one of three hungry beast cats. I stumble blearily out of bed, down the stairs, feed them a cup of dry kibble, and drag my way back upstairs to my French press, which is like a shining beacon of morning caffeine and hope.
Toss in one or two scoops of coffee grounds (I hide my coffee grounds in a McCann’s steel cut oats can, no one thinks to look there), depending on how bad the morning is feeling,
pour in boiled water, and wait.
Yes, I have an instant hot water faucet. It is one of many things that makes my kitchen very very convenient to my life.
After five minutes, press and pour.
This morning was actually a stumble-all-the-way-to-Rite-Aid-for-cat-food-before-coffee morning because I forgot to pick some up last night, and my three little beasts were starving and screaming at me. Sorry I’m a bad mom, babies!
This morning was also an oatmeal morning.
In the mix: My perennial favorite, steel cut oats (these are Bob’s Red Mill), peanut butter, sliced banana, half an apple (I ate the rest of the apple while I waited for the oats to cook), a drizzle of grade B maple syrup, and cinnamon. If I don’t eat cinnamon at least two times a day, something is potentially wrong.
While I eat my oats and drink my French pressed coffee, I do the obvious – read blogs and see what everyone else is having for breakfast. Thank goodness I’m single and home alone – how will I blog over breakfast when I’m married with babies? Seriously.
So, as I’m reading blogs this morning I thought I would share with ya’ll some fabulous blog giveaways. Follow the linkage to find out how you can score some awesome foodie swag.
