Cookie monsters

Hi-ya friends!  How’s everyone’s Thursday?

Well I spent last night watching American Idol & lounging with these cookie monsters

Seriously?  Cookie Monster 1 must have a hole in his chin….  Cookie Monster 2 takes her job as a stand-in vaccuum pretty seriously hahaha 😉

On the recovery front, I’ve been doing pretty well, slept through the night medicine-free so that was definitely a good thing!

Upon awakening though whipped up a smoothie to moisten the ol’ throat and wet the appetite (I am hangryyyy!)

And to assure you friends, there were no thoughts of seafood in this morning’s smoothie haha 😛 although I must say that I thoroughly enjoyed your comments on Shrimp Smoothie” !!!

I may or may not have also eaten some Coconut Milk Ice Cream at 9:30am…. but I’lllllllll neverrrrrr tellllll 😉

For lunch I thought I’d get all exciting & crazy and whip up some savory oat bran using these friends:

I haven’t had Laughing Cow wedges in years… what have I been thinking?!?!

  • 1/3 cup oat bran
  • 2/3 cup original almond milk
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 1 cheese wedge, stirred into oats
  • 1 egg, “fried” in cooking spray




Holy cow chicken this was really really good!  I normally don’t prefer “fried” eggs (I like ’em scrambled, what can I say?) but for some reason the runny yolk atop these cheesy savory oats was just what the doctor ordered today 🙂

So good.

Alright well not much else to report on the “exciting events of the day” front.  Nurse Mom and I are headed out to pick up some more of this

I seriously swear that this fabulous stuff has aided so much in my recovery…. maybe it’s mental, but each day I am feeling a lil’ less than stellar and I whip up a smoothie with this sucker, somehow things just get better.

Other than that I think there will be some more resting in order (shocker).  I also have some exciting news in that I actually heard my own voice today for the first time in 7 days!!

Oh yes, a small few peeps was uttered by ol’ talky talkerton (that would be me) to which fanatic dad responded “oh geeze, the silence is overrrrr” hahaha.  If ya’ll knew me aside from the blog, you would know that I’m a real chatty Kathy!  Yes friends, I was the kid in first grade punished & writing sentences for talking at every available opportunity where I shouldn’t have been 😛

So be it. 

Alright, see you tonight and enjoy your TGIAF! 🙂
