the good things about a snow day...

One good thing about taking the morning off from work because the roads are icy and and I almost got in a wreck so close to home that I turned around and called in:

Sleep! That's right, I reset my alarm clock for 10:30 and got three extra hours of beloved sleep.

Another good thing: High PointPlus Oatmeal!!!

Because I exercised from 11:05-11:45 (to The Young and the Restless, I might add), all before I ate anything, I had both my breakfast PointsPlus and my lunch PointsPlus to work with, for one giant bowl of delicious 13 PointsPlus oatmeal.

I didn't take a picture, but let me assure you, it was beautiful. :-) In case you ever find yourself wanting or needing to eat 13 PointsPlus of oatmeal, I've included my "recipe".

Leah's Super High PointsPlus Oatmeal:
1/2 cup oats, dry
1 cup light soy milk
1/4 cup granola
1/3 cup chocolate cheerios
1 tablespoon peanut butter
1 banana

Microwave the oats in the soy milk for 2 minutes on high. Add the remaining ingredients and microwave an additional 40 seconds. Stir. Enjoy!!!
