Pumpkin Pie Steel Cut Oats and Weekend Love

I love the weekends!  I was thinking about that Sunday morning when I was still laying in bed at 7am.  No rushing, more free time and plenty of time to relax.  I was one with my couch yesterday afternoon.  No joke!  We spent the first 1/2 of the weekend with family and enjoying ourselves.  Sunday morning I had a client to train and then my food prep was interrupted by our kitchen sink clogging up.  So dinner plans went out the door as did lots of my prep.

Oh well… just more time to curl up and relax.  Isn’t that what weekends are all about?

We had cold fall temps here this weekend.  Saturday was raw and Sunday was a little better.  The cool weather has me full into pumpkin season!  Who else is loving it?

I never have time to make steel cut oats during the week.  Who has time to wait 30 plus minutes for breakfast during the week?  What I usually do on Sunday is make a big batch for a few days.  Yesterday, I decided to add some pumpkin and chia seeds to make a tasty fall favorite!

  5. Pumpkin oatmeal is a great breakfast. I like to add nuts on top for extra protein and crunch.
