lunch was an epic fail

My morning bowl of oats was awesome, thanks to a new cereal topper and my shiny new white bowl! :)

I got the bowl at World Market for $2.99 and it is pretty much the perfect sized oatmeal bowl.

Cinnamon Strawberry Crunch Oats

  • 1/3c. oats
  • 2/3c. almond milk [unsweetened]
  • 1/2 banana
  • 1/2t vanilla
  • 1/2t cinnamon
  • 1/2t chia seeds
  • 1T pnut butter
  • 1/3c. Yogi Granola Crisps


The dollop slid riiight off the spoon.


My new favorite brand of cereal!  This is the 2nd kind I have tried, and I absolutely LOVE it.  The flavor is awesome and it is insanely crunchy = happy ashley 


By the time lunch rolled around, I was craving a Green Monster! And this is where the epic fail began…

So far, I have made GM’s with no recipes, just kinda adding things in and they have been successful every time!  I had some cooked kale from last nights dinner that I thought I would use instead of spinach.  Well, the blender didn’t like it so much and left lots of chunky pieces, and I forgot the kale had a garlic + salt seasoning on it :(  I figured my add-ins would be able to cover up the kale mess, but it didn’t work. 

Fail 1 - This was disgusting :)


Fail #2 – My persimmon is finally ripe!!!! However, I don’t think I like them very much.  They are too sweet and the texture is pretty slimy.  Imagine that…a fruit that is too sweet?  I’ll give it a couple more shots…but so far I’m not sold on it.


Lunch Success – Clementine – The only good thing that happened during lunch!


Ohhhh was this little guy tasty!


Fail #3 – Prosciutto + Asiago + Cucumber + Hummus on an english muffin – Doesn’t sound too bad right?  Well, it wouldn’t have been if my prosciutto didn’t taste FISHY!!! YAK!


I peeled off the prosciutto and at the rest which was tasty…but I was gagging from the nasty meat! Bleh!  I ended up eating enough random/failed foods to fill me up and I also munched on some FSTG chips.  This is my last bag from the sample box they sent me and again, these are SO good.  This kind tastes like a straight up potato and they didn’t overdo it with the chive flavor.



Remember my brown hat with the flower?  Chris + I found it last night looking like this…


“It wasn’t me”




Grrrrrrr, bad Kenners!!!!!!!!!  Side profile mug shot -


Dinner was a HUGE success, but I forgot to get those photos off the camera and I am ready for bed!  Details will be on tomorrow’s post.

To the mountains tomorrow :)
