I found this abandoned sample of “Pumpkin, Nuts and 10 Years Port” jam at work the other day and wanted to put it to good use this weekend. I also really wanted a hearty serving of Oats in a Jar.
But since this was the only jar about to be emptied, I had what is surely the (blog) world’s tiniest Oats in a Jar instead.
How tiny was it? Well, here are my not-so-tiny fingers for scale:
Boy howdy was I stuffed after that! Now I know how a fashion model feels.
I kid. Here’s the rest of breakfast:
You didn’t really think I’d let a post go by without mentioning something about cereal, did you? (But seriously, I think I’m finally done with this theme.)
In honor of National Peanut Butter Day (this past Sunday), I went back to basics by making myself a nice bowl of oats with the new Special K honey granola, peanut butter and aforementioned Port jam for toppings.
Port jam, my friends, is how we legitimize drinking before noon.
Again, I kid. The jam did make my oats a lot
drunker better though!
As for the granola, I decided I wouldn’t buy it for myself. I was happy to try the free sample, thanks to Foodbuzz, but the ingredient list is a bit of a turn-off.
How about a breakfast highlight with only one ingredient?
The super-expensive, organic Asian pear I bought on impulse this weekend. I’d always thought I didn’t care for pears, but after my sister recently shared her Harry & David pears with me, I thought I owed them a second chance (unlike Special K).
It wasn’t quite like the amazing taste of Harry & David’s pears I had, but it was pretty darn good anyway. Perhaps the third time’s the charm, as they say.
Have you ever given a food a second chance and found that you liked it?
Did you celebrate National Peanut Butter Day?
