Anyways, this segways into "My Favorite Things":
1.) Fall ( my head is spinning from all my pumpkin-related pinning) so witty, i know
2.) Yoga pants. When will they invent biz-casual yoga pants?! Get with it victoria's secret!!
3.) Peanut Butter. Literally on anything. Literally in my mouth....literally.
4.) The french word "Parapluie" meaning umbrella. And yes, every french word must be italicized.
Ok i think that was the most random list of favorite things I could come up with. But they are legit.
I've been meaning to put this recipe up for a while now, but alas my hunger and lack of ambition has prevailed. Don't fret! I have finally dedicated my 3.5 seconds to take a picture of one of my go-to favorite breakfasts for you to try. It's not quite a parfait, but more than a cereal. Mind-boggling goodness is what it is.
Shredded Wheat Breakfast Bowl
1 1/4 cups unfrosted shredded wheat
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup plain yogurt
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 banana, sliced
cinnamon to taste
Simply combine everything in a bowl, and mix until combined. If you prefer vanilla yogurt, you can of course use that and leave out the extra vanilla. I added 1/2 tablespoon chia seeds to mine this morning to help thicken it up, since I ran out of yogurt.
I like to top mine with another favorite of mine, which I call peanut butter sauce:
Start by slicing half a banana (frozen slices work best), and heat a microwave safe bowl for 1 minute, until the banana is "melty" and warm.
Stir in 1 tablespoon of peanut butter, until mixture is combined. Add cinnamon if you please.
I can't wait to try this with pumpkin with fall coming up, and even applesauce. In the words of Will Ferrell, it's gunna be "scrumtrulesant"!
Plain ol' shredded wheat is just as it seems by itself. Cardboard. But once you make this bowl, you will think twice about it's deceptively sweet counterparts. The mixture is thick, creamy, and the perfect amount of sweet. Give the wheat a try!
Warm and gooey peanut butter sauce. Oh, yes.
I'm compiling an extensive list of fall recipes to try, which could take me a while. Some I plan on posting are Banana Bread oatmeal, yeast-free cinnamon rolls, and a veggie stew!
What are some of your favorite fall time treats?
