Second best day of the year

November 26, 2010 § 1 Comment

I spent an obscene amount of time reading food blogs.

Katheats, ohsheglows, healthytippingpoint, and eatliverun are among my favorites.

So I decided, after seeing my sister’s food blog, that I would create one of my own.

Food and photography are my two passions in life, and I can’t think of a better way to combine the two.

Unfortunately, writing is not my passion.  I apologize in advance for any grammatical errors.

Ahhh the day after thanksgiving, the second best eating day of the year (after thanksgiving of course).

Breakfast:

Oatmeal with left over apple-blueberry crumble

1/4 a cup of old fashion cooking oats

1/4 a cup of all bran cereal

1 tbs of chia seed/buckwheat blend

Enough water to submerge the two

1/2 a frozen banana (sliced thinly)

A couple scoops of my mom’s homemade blueberry-apple crumble (which was insane)

Vanilla

Cinnamon

2 blobs of Libby’s pumpkin puree

Put all the ingredients (except the pumpkin) into a pot over low heat, and stir.  After about two minutes, the water will start to evaporate and the oats will thicken.  After you get to this point, stir in the pumpkin and turn off the heat.

Tell me your not drooling.

I’m not sure how my mom made the crumble, but it was incredible. She usually just makes up recipes on the spot.  She has such an amazing talent for cooking.  Give her a couple of ingredients and a little time and you will have a guaranteed gourmet meal.   All I know is that she used wild blueberries that she, my brother, and dad picked and that it doesn’t have any processed sugar in it.  My family only uses pure maple syrup, or honey to sweeten our food but that my friends, is a post for another time.

Happy eats ❤
