Weekly Oats Roundup, New Projects, and Time

Just wanted to check in after another week with an oats roundup and some updates on projects I have been working on lately :-) Yesterday was such a rough Monday but I did some reflecting and I feel really refocused this morning and ready for the rest of the week which is exciting! I have a lot to look forward to, with conference play starting this weekend and hopefully a day in Chinatown on Sunday! I also need to shop for groceries at some point...which will be a perfect excuse for me to make it back to Trader Joe's ;) I'll start off with the promised oats summary:

Grapefruit-Raisin Oatmeal
 Grapefruit-Raisin Oatmeal! (try it...you will be surprised!)

Pumpkin Cinnamon Oatmeal with Greek Yogurt

That's it for the week...if you have any submissions, please contact me and I will post them during the next oats roundup! As usual, there are a couple of recipes that I'm still working on that I want to give you a preview of, so please let me know what you think! The first are some pumpkin protein crepes that took some refining, but I'm pretty sure I've almost got it down. Obviously the first batch was really successful: (haha)

Coconut Plantain Muffins

I'm also working on coconut plantain muffins with only four ingredients! The taste is good but they are really dense for now. Keep checking back for when I post the new recipe though ;) In other news, I wrapped a gift for my good friend's boyfriend because it is their anniversary and she is studying abroad, so I had the honor of doing the delivery this morning! I still can't wrap my head around the fact that it has been two years since they started dating, which means it has been more than two years since we started college...yikes. Since we keep ourselvses so busy time goes by fast, but that is what makes it especially scary. Pretty soon it will be Thanksgiving and then Christmas and break...it all rolls into one. Do you have any special plans for the rest of this year? Personally, I really can't wait to see how the rest of 2013 turns out. This also means that pretty soon I will have to be looking for internships again though...hopefully I find something that I really enjoy for the summer.

Brown Paper and Tie Dye Gift Wrap

That's all for now, have a great week everyone! And remember to like me on Facebook and follow me on Twitter :)
