I had all of this for breakfast….

Well, a mixed muesli of all this stuff.

I put in one spoonful each of:

  • oats
  • honey granola
  • chia seeds
  • flax meal
  • desiccated coconut
  • toasted buckwheat
  • toasted almonds

And then sprinkled on a few pistachios, gojis, and golden raisins. This is what it looks like dry…

And after sitting in almond milk for a minute…

It continues to thicken up until it gets to the texture of runny oatmeal.  I had it with a cup of my new favorite tea ever, a pu-erh

I have been wary to try this kind of tea for a while because I’ve heard people describe it as tasting like dirt, or having barnyard aromas.  Ew.  But Jeff thought I might enjoy it because he knows I like deep, oaky, woody flavored teas.  Wow, I loved it.  And I didn’t get a dirt flavor at all, it was kind of like the aftertaste you get from coffee- not sour, just the way the roasted aroma hangs in your mouth and in the back of your throat.  And the smell!  It smells like leather, or like horses.  Like hay and the way the ground smells before it rains.  Divine, I tell you.

THIS GUY was sitting on the floor directly behind me while I ate breakfast.  He is my biggest fan.  This cat frikkin’ loves me.  Isn’t it ridiculous how he lays on the floor with his hind legs all splayed out the back?  He is so weird.

Time to get some housework done and head to the grocery, get all the not fun stuff out of the way so we can enjoy the weekend.
