Sunday Morning Breakfast

As I'm writing this mid-morning post, I am catching up on all of my favorite blogs and watching politics on tv (I am HOOKED!). I hope all of you are enjoying your Sunday morning. My husband is always on the go when it comes to the weekends and after being married almost one year, I am realizing that I need to start making breakfast more often. While I admit this is primarily for his sake, because he needs fuel for golfing long hours, it also has a nice side effect that I will actually eat breakfast too (I usually just drink lots of coffee...I know, awful!).

I have been doing really well at picking up fresh fruit and making sure to munch on it when I get into a snacking mode, as well as I always pack my husband some with his lunches during the week. So I included some fresh pineapple and blackberries this morning with breakfast to go along with this fantastic oatmeal recipe I found on Pinterest yesterday afternoon. This recipe for Chunky Monkey Morning Oats from She Well is the bomb! It was so easy to throw together, which I love, and I had all of the ingredients in my pantry minus the bananas (so I was sure to put them on the grocery list for my trip to the store yesterday!). Look how amazing these look!

  1. Hey Ashley!

    Just popping in. :) Also-- now that I see this picture of fruit, I have the BIGGEST craving for it!

    1. This always switches for me but currently I'm on a HUGE avocado toast kick. I've been adding sliced roma tomatoes + chili flakes!

    2. Busy mornings, I'll usually grab a protein shake for the road!

    3. I'm reading this post currently on a Thursday so I am SOOOO looking forward to this coming weekend!

    Hope all is well!

    1. I'm so glad you did, Melissa! I was missing my blogging and thought I really needed to get back into it, and am happy to see your comment. :)

      1. That sounds great! I haven't tried avocado toast yet, but lots of people love it.

      2. Always a quick and easy choice!

      3. Ahh, couldn't agree with you more. I'm so thankful it's Fri-yay! :P

      Right back at you, friend! I appreciate the comment and am definitely going to get back into the blogging. :)
