Classy classy

Good morning! Before I get started on today, I just want to mention that I have entered Saturday’s crazy pre-run breakfast — the pb-pumpkin hummus on a toasted bagel with a sweet ‘n’ spicy black bean-salmon patty open-faced sandwich — into The Great Peanut Butter Exhibition #5 – Sandwich contest!


If you can’t remember how gorgeous this sandwich was, here’s a visual reminder:


And just to be specific about it all, the pb-pumpkin-hummus spread contains 1 tbsp of each of those 3 components, along with hefty sprinkles of cayenne and cinnamon, yum!! Now I want one of these sandwiches again …

But, I’ll have to make do with this breakfast cookie (oh darn, hehehe):


Today’s cookie contains 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats, 1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder, 1 tbsp peanut butter, 1/2 mashed banana, 2 tbsp unsweetened soymilk, 1 chopped piece of Lindt hazelnut chocolate, and 1 tbsp toasted pumpkin seeds.


I finally got the proportions of dry-to-wet correct, so no freezer necessary today! It was hard enough from the overnight in the fridge. But I’m also kind of thinking that I might like it better with that extra frozen ice-creamy texture …

Mmmmmm, chunk of hazelnut chocolate hanging onto the edge:


On the side, I had a pot of tea made from the Yogi Himalayan Apple Spice tea sample I received last night:


The tea was ok. It just tasted like regular old herbal apple spice tea. I guess the big selling point is supposed to be that it also contains black tea and has caffeine — it’s part of the “revive” series — but again, nothing particularly special about the flavor.

I was planning to go for a run this morning, but I didn’t get to bed until pretty late last night because I was up working! Adjusted plan is to do the run when I get back from class this afternoon — which may actually work out better since it will be sunnier and warmer then. I’ll be back post-run with a report on the day!

(And p.s., I had this little dish with about 1/4 cup of pineapple and 1 tbsp granola before I went to bed last night:


If I even have the slightest bit of hunger in my belly at bedtime, I can’t fall asleep!)

Can you sleep when your tummy is growling?

    Nope, if I feel the slightest bit hungry I can’t sleep. Its usually remedied with a pinch of cereal though….I’ve also started to wake up around 2 or so in the morning sometimes because of my bakeshop days and need that pinch of cereal…

    I really want that chunk of chocolate on the edge of the breakfast cookie!

    That breakfast cookie looks damnnn fine! I cannot go to bed hungry at all! I won’t be able to fall asleep until I eat something, so I just get up, get some yogurt and/or cereal, and then fall asleep.

    I can go to sleep if I’m not starving but just a little hungry. Usually I’m pretty satisified when I go to bed, but on weekend nights I might be a little grumbley but don’t want to eat because it’s typically pretty late.
    That breakfast looks so great. I bet it was super yummy to eat.
