Have someone in your life who isn’t super sure about oatmeal (me!).

Make them oatmeal with chocolate in it.

That will make them an oatmeal fan.

Dear Jessica,

Congrats on your new book-  Pretty Dish . I LOVE IT!   I just wanted to let you know that you are my hero. I too waffle back and forth in my taste for oatmeal. Most of the time it’s a hard pass. But then I saw the picture of the chocolate oatmeal in your cookbook and OH, MY GOD, HOW COULD I NOT TRY CHOCOLATE IN MY OATMEAL??!  I drizzled peanut butter on top. Then I sliced bananas because FRUIT. The only thing I regret was not using chunky peanut butter. Next time!

My world is forever changed,

Tracy

Intentions for the Week

Looking to get your head in the game? Tracy from Shutterbean makes a weekly TO DO LIST called her Intentions for the Week. Here's what this week looks like:

Hello! Happy Monday. How was your weekend?  The sun was shining here in the bay area and then we ended the weekend with rain. While my brother in law was here visiting us,  I did some painting, worked around the house, spent time outside in my garden and got ahead of the week by ordering some stuff from Costco from Instacart. (btw-I really like ordering stuff online because I can be more intentional about what I buy. If I go to Costco in person, I will come back with so many more things that I didn’t need.  Plus, it frees up time so it’s worth it to me!  I just don’t like people picking out my produce (ever). That’s super personal to me and I can’t always trust what I’m going to get.)

This week I’m headed to Los Angeles for a quick minute! While I’m gone, I gotta get all of Cooper’s school stuff situated so my boys have a smooth week. I have a mountain of laundry to fold (hello, I procrastinated!!). The only thing that keeps me motivated to do it is having something on TV on in the background. I’ve been “watching”  Off Camera on Netflix while I work/fold laundry and it’s been really good. I highly recommend the Matt Damon interview. He’s golden.
