Shop ‘Til You Drop

Per Thanksgiving tradition…


There’s no better use of leftover pumpkin pie than putting a slice on top of banana oats.  Trust me.


How are you using leftovers today?  Leftovers are my favorite part of Thanksgiving.  <3


Anyone going shopping on Black Friday?  I think I will avoid the malls this year and do most of my shopping online.  It’s just easier that way.  If you’re looking for a gift for an 8 – 14 year old girl in your life, may I suggest the new Operation Beautiful book?  I’ll do a complete ‘tour’ of the book later this week, but let me tell you – the inside is better than the cover (and I think the cover is pretty darn cute).  Really colorful and fun with loads of great Operation Beautiful notes.  And it’s packed with advice on how to be healthy and happy in a world that sends tweens and teens a lot of confusing messages.


Only $9.99 on Amazon <— and eligible for Prime free shipping!


Happy Holiday Season!

    BEST IDEA EVER! I wish I hadn’t eaten breakfast yet, but I know what I’m having for breakfast tomorrow!

    I saw a recipe for cranberry walnut bread that makes use of leftover cranberry sauce so I think I’ll give that a try. Now if I could only figure out how to use leftover stuffing!

    Would love to order your book for my 2 Goddaughters (ages 10 & 13) but Amazon says it will be released 12/27. A bit late for a Christmas present 🙁

    • Caitlin November 23, 2012, 11:12 am

      you may get it early! amazon usually ships a bit early 🙂

      • K November 23, 2012, 9:47 pm

    Pie on oatmeal?! Why have I never done this?

    Would it be wrong to make a pumpkin pie just so that I can do this? If it’s wrong, then I don’t think I want to be right!

    Congrats on the book. The perfect gift for my 12 year old cousin! When can I buy in stores?

    • Caitlin November 23, 2012, 11:45 am

    I sent a link to this post to my brother because we do a gift drawing (you draw one person to give a gift to since my family is so big) and my brother has our cousin who is 12, I thought this would be perfect for her!

  • Lee November 23, 2012, 12:10 pm

    I just went for the pie straight up by itself this morning. Mmmm.

  • Katy November 23, 2012, 12:26 pm

    I made french toast with the leftover honey walnut rolls! It’s tradition in my family 😀

  • Sam @ Better With Sprinkles November 23, 2012, 1:04 pm

    I never would have thought of pumpkin pie on oatmeal…definitely a creative use of leftovers!

    I’m staying far away from the malls today too! Your book cover is really adorable– I hope lots of copies are sold on Amazon today!

    How come they can’t release your book one week BEFORE Christmas?

    • Caitlin November 23, 2012, 4:34 pm

      It’s in time for new year new you.

      • Aimee November 24, 2012, 12:48 am

        gah! kind of cringing at this– 8-12 year olds don’t need to be part of a new year, new you marketing scheme! lame publishing companies… 🙁

  • Katie November 23, 2012, 4:44 pm

    Did you make the pie crust gf? how? I’m looking for a good recipe.

    • Caitlin November 23, 2012, 9:41 pm

      Check out the link on the Tday menu post.

  • Amy Q November 23, 2012, 7:01 pm

    Gotcha. I’m getting one anyway- but trying to promote it to friends as a good holiday gift isn’t as easy. Hopefully, it does ship early.

  • Mai November 24, 2012, 12:25 am

    i definitely copied this breakfast after i read it here this morning. 🙂

  • Kelly November 24, 2012, 8:46 am

    Love the oatmeal idea. I usually put leftover cranberries on top of mine.

    I hope the book ships sooner than 12/27 since I have it pre-ordered for a Christmas gift. *crossing my fingers*

    • Caitlin November 24, 2012, 8:29 pm

      Me too! THANKS 🙂
