It is a HOT TEA kind of morning…
I don’t need to go into all of the details, but last night involved a new Mexican restaurant, the local townie bar, and ended way too late with some wine and Mario Cart.
I didn’t set an alarm this morning, which was delightful. When I finally dragged myself out of bed, it was close to 10AM. I was in need of a hot caffeinated beverage!
And a delicious breakfast…
I was inspired by yesterday’s breakfast success, to make another hot quinoa breakfast. With little prep and a quick cooking time, it was the perfect breakfast for this morning.
Instead of sweet potato, I used banana and added in some flax seed.
I am so impressed with how good this breakfast tastes!
Not to mention, how fun it is to eat!
What a great way to start a lazy day! Although I have a long list of things to do, including a workout and a pre-Vegas pedicure, we’ll see how much actually gets done. Ahh…the joys of Sunday!!!
