It’s BIRTHDAY DAY!
Happy Birthday Dad! And Happy Birthday Meghann!
We have a day filled with birthday activities, so I made sure I ate a filling but fun oatmeal breakfast.
I made a healthier version of my favorite oatmeal recipe, Upside Down Pineapple Cake Oatmeal. The original recipe calls for ingredients like butter and brown sugar, and thus is off-limits for Crap Free Week.
This version features a grilled pineapple and unsweetened coconut as a healthier option.
My oatmeal included:
- 1/2 cup oatmeal
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 sliced banana
- Toppings: grilled pineapple, unsweetened coconut, pecans
On the side, I had a 1 serving of Pom Wonderful mixed with a cup of water.
As mentioned, we’re driving to my Aunt’s house for my Dad’s Birthday. I made his favorite cake (as cupcakes)… Yellow Cake!
I used this recipe, which judging from the taste tests last night, is pretty good!
I’m LATE! Got to go! See you tonight.
So many fun celebrations going on!! 😀
