dessert for breakfast

I accidentally had dessert for breakfast. I blame the Pilgrims. Due to the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday, I am out of milk and don’t want to buy more because I won’t use it and will come back in a week and it’ll be bad and waste is no good, man!

Okay so dessert:

The ingredients for this dessert included these:

Do we get it now? Fiber One caramel delight (it was on sale plus I had a coupon so I got it for like $2. It tastes like french toast crunch!) plus, due to lack of milk, Yoplait apple turnover yogurt, a current favorite of mine.

I tried to cut through the cloying sweetness with apples and almonds…

But man, I am sugared out for the day!
Actually, if you’re someone who has a problem with a sweet tooth, this might be good… “desensitization therapy”? Is that what they call it?

Yesterday’s apple breakfast was more reasonable:

I love how the quality of the lighting in my blog is a reflection on the spastic Boston weather.

Inspired by Kristin, I made semi apple crisp oats. The night before, I chopped up my apple and tossed it with a little turbinado sugar and cinnamon. Then in the morning, I combined it with my usual 1/2 cup oats, a mini box of raisins, the last of my milk (I only had like 2 tbsp?), and 1 cup water (I went above my usual ratio because of the dried fruit). I topped with mixed nuts which added an AWESOME salty contrast. This bowl was killer!

Okay but actually those breakfasts pale in comparison to lunch because I made… drumroll…

KATH’S RISOTTO QUESADILLA! The woman is a genius. It is SO GOOD! Just LOOK at the oozy creamy veggie-y risotto-y goodness oozing out of my tortilla!

Yummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

I rounded out my plate with carrots and hummus and a bit of thawed frozen mango.
