A parting song for you…
“All my bags are packed I’m ready to go
I’m standing here in the freezing cold
I hate to make you jealous and say goodbye.
But the beach is waiting it’s time for a tan
The plane’s a waitin’ and I’ve got my man
I’m so excited to leave the cold that I could die!
So miss me and think of me
Tell me that you’ll wait for me
Please don’t forget my blog.
Cause I’m leavin’ on a jet plane
I know when I’ll be back again
Oh friends I’ll miss you so!”
Adrian and I are flying out tomorrow for the Philippines, so I bid you adieu. I am not too sure how accessible or reliable the internet will be while we are gone, so you may hear from me or you may not. I am sorry is it’s the latter 🙂
I spent the afternoon packing. I was quite happy with all the piles of t-shirts, shorts, dresses I had organized, but when I shoved everything into my travel pack, it felt like I had packed a small child inside! How did this happen? I made a conscious effort to pack light, which is easier with summer clothes, but I guess I was unsuccessful 😦
And ya know when you have your bags packed and are unwilling to sacrifice anything? That’s where I’m at. I think I may just pay the extra fee if my bag is overweight…we will see. It’s only the internal flights in the Philippines that I have to worry about; they only allow 10kg! What’s a girl to do?!
In any event, I am more than excited. If I could stuff you all in my bag I would! How fun would that be, eh?
One more thing before I go…
I had the most marvelous breakfast/lunch today.
Make these while I am gone and think of me; they will change your life. All you need is 4 ingredients, along with your favorite crepe toppings, and you are good to go. Amazing!
Healthy Oatmeal Crepes:
- Approx. 3/4 Cup Oatmeal
Put into the blender and blend until you have oat flour.
- 1 Cup milk (any kind will do)
- 2 Eggs (I did 2 eggs + 1 egg white)
- pinch of salt
Toss into the blender with the oat flour and blend again. Let batter sit for about 10 mins.
Heat your pan with a little oil or butter and spoon about 3 Tbsp. of batter into the pan. Give the pan a good turn around to spread the crepe out nice and thin. Cook until golden brown on both sides; only a couple of minutes.
Top with fruit, PB, yogurt, jam, melted chocolate etc. The options are endless.
This breakie is packed with fiber and protein; I think it’s a winner!
Take care my friends!
Hopefully I will be able to send an update.
