Oats and Tomato Soup

18 Oct

This morning for breakfast I wanted something hearty.  I decided to spend some time on breakfast and make oatmeal!  : )

Toppings- PB, Pumpkin Butter, Flaxseeds, Chia Seeds

Waiting for the oatmeal to cook I decided that a chopped banana would make a good topping too

Still waiting…

I decided next, that fresh raspberries sounded like a good topping as well!

In between breakfast and lunch, I snacked on a high protein cookie.

After morning errands, I came home and made the Husband and my Mom creamy tomato soup with open face grilled cheese sandwiches and reheated the left over garlic shrimp from yesterday.

I found this soup at Costco and really enjoyed it

I sliced some crusty bread, brushed the bottoms with a drizzle of olive oil and put cheddar cheese on top.  I broiled them on high for about 6 – 8 minutes until the cheese was completely melted

This was my spot once I finished eating…..I got so hot, I had to take off my Mr. Rogers sweater and my boots!

I bought some cute fall decorations at Lowes today.  I had been looking for something to put on our fireplace mantle in our bedroom.  These are outdoor lawn decorations, but I like them inside better!  Your guess is as good as mine as to why a home in Arizona has a fireplace in the master bedroom.  We’ve never used it once…

I love the curly stems!  : )

Okay, I better stop blogging and listening to Melody Gardot on Pandora and go tackle the loads of laundry that are starting to pile up.   They are all begging to be folded!

What is your least favorite household chore?  Mine is folding laundry once its dry.  I loathe it!

      I love tomato soup, especially in the fall! I have a great homemade tomato soup recipe (from my mother-in-law) made with roasted tomatos, garlic and onions- I’ll have to make it soon and post it! Everything warm tastes great in the fall!
