Spur of the moment last week, I decided to go down to Chapel Hill for the football game on Saturday. During the game I thought, “why don’t I do this more?” I get to see friends, play on old stomping grounds, eat and drink much cheaper…then around midnight when I was VERY ready for bed and I realized I didn’t really have a place to stay – I remembered why I don’t go down there more.
I don’t have the rebound capacity like I did back in the day. When I don’t get a good night sleep one night, it takes at least 2 days to catch up and feel normal again. But hey, it was fun while it lasted.
So, Monday morning called for something hot and comforting.
Apple Pie Oatmeal
1/2 cup oats
1 cup water
1/2 apple, diced
splash of vanilla extract
maple syrup (or brown sugar)
*nuts and raisins would be great additions
Microwave the first 6 ingredients together for 3 minutes, then top with remaining ingredients.
