Oats for Eats… Eats for Oats…this WIAW!

Happy dancing is involved when free stuff finds it’s way into my mailbox!

Specially, when it involves coffee…

I was super stoked to find this sample of JAVAPRO in my mailbox last night! But then I was hit with a dilemma – seeing this has coffee…should I skip my second morning cup? Should I have only half a cup? I have been having close to 5 more coffee than should be disclosed on here and I am trying to unsuccessfully cut down so adding a protein shake with coffee was getting me all sorts of discombobulated…(or maybe that was the coffee in my system)…so I figured I would cook the JAVAPRO into my oatmeal pancakes – because I like to think that, much like alcohol’s potency is cooked out in a dish, coffee’s caffeine level is “cooked out” in pancakes! 🙂

All joshing aside though – these pancakes were not only delicious, they were so darn hearty. They are very similar to my oatmeal pancakeswhich won a recipe contest sponsored by the restaurant that serves our office buildings and was on the restaurant menu for a week-yup, am doing some tooting of my horn here! 🙂

A busy day meant loads of snacking, which included (not pictured) carrots and peanuts – the perfect balance of sweet and salty! And more coffee – also not pictured.
And …one or two or three of these chocolate scones…I think this must be the 6th batch of these I have made…

Dinner was chicken seasoned with turmeric, paprika, cumin, salt and pepper and olive oil and a hooooooooge side of broccoli and black beans with onions, ginger and garlic and quinoa and green peppers.

And dessert – Kemps Butter Pecan frozen yogurt with homemade magic shell consisting of melted coconut oil and dark chocolate chips!

And that’s a wrap yall – Hope yall have a wonderful day of eats AND treats!

I don't have the whole coffee problem... I've never had a cup of coffee! Ever! It's just something I've never gotten into... I'm a morning person without it!

These pancakes look awesome! And congrats on winning the contest, that's super cool!
