Happy Easter!!

Hope the Easter Bunny was good to you today!

I heart the Easter Bunny :)

My Easter Basket: (the same basket I’ve had since I can remember)

Those Teenee Beanee jelly beans are THE BEST EVER!! We always buy that kind, and this year I actually had to order some online for my mom because none of the stores had them!! They are similar in size and texture to Jelly Belly, but without the RANDOM flavors…just the classics and perfect.

Surprisingly I haven’t dove into my candy yet…I have however had a few “samples” of stuffing…you know just to make sure it’s seasoned enough ;)

I also did the 30min SHRED this morning because my hopes of a run were squashed when the thermometer read 32* this morning!!!! WTF!!! It was like 60 two days ago :(

For a little breakfast snack I had 1/2 of the heel of Arnold Double Protein bread with Raw Almond butter (TJ’s) and a sliced strawberry…mmm.

Easter Egg Oats

So I have been waiting FOREVER to post this. I made them a while ago…like when Cadbury Eggs first made their appearance (probably right around Valentines Day).

Sometimes I’ll add 2 or 3 choc. chips to my oats…let them melt in and make for a few decadent bites within my bowl of oats. So I could only imagine what a Cadbury Mini Egg could do!!

So I made a standard bowl of oats one morning…topped with:

  • Zoe’s Honey Almond Granola
  • Unsweetened shredded coconut
  • spoon of White Choc. Wonderful PB
  • 1 Beautiful Cadbury Egg nested in the middle

I could tell it was getting melty as the yellow candy coating was looking shiny and melting off into my oats haha

…so I know a little artificial coloring is probably not the best oat topping but it was worth the end result.

I had already brought it back to my desk to eat, and 1 min later I HAD to take my bowl and camera (very discreetly) back into the kitchen for a picture of THIS:

LOOK AT THAT MELTED CHOCOLATE EGG!!!! It was fun “cracking” the egg open into the oats!!

This would make for a Perfect Easter Breakfast in my opinion :)

Well the WHOLE Family is coming over here (to my moms house) this afternoon…along with Brian and his mom and step dad for the FIRST TIME his mom and step dad will meet my WHOLE FAMILY!!! I almost feel nervous for them…my family is big and loud hahah…nothing is held back, but they are also super fun so its okay. Plus better now than at the wedding :)

Hope I win some big money in the egg hunt!! (hey you laugh but 1 egg is even worth $50)…

HAPPY BUNNY DAY!!!!!!!!!!

  10. Wow...what a great idea to do with Cadbury eggs (my newest obsession). I think I may hit the stores tomorrow to see if I can find a last minute stash of them - they're amazingly hard to find.
