Flax Hot Cereal and a Family Fun Run

Today began with a family fun run! Ryan and I leashed up the pup for a 5 mile run at 5:45 this morning.

Ready to Run!

Sadie was awfully chipper and kicked our sleepy lil’ butts. I think she could have easily run double the distance. What a champ.

The run was great and I loved having Ryan along to keep me company (and make sure I was okay when I fell on my butt… stupid bumpy brick streets!). Though it was dark when we set out, the sun was up by the time we were done. I am loving the time change!

Running always revs up my appetite for the rest of the day, so I prepared a bowl of hot cereal. I ordered butter pecan Flax Z Snax cereal from Netrition.com and was anxious to try it!

Butter Pecan Hot Cereal

To make the cereal, I just added hot water and let it sit for approximately 2 minutes. Of course I added a scoop of peanut butter for some creaminess and a few chocolate chips for sweetness.

Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chips!

This was a winning combination! I expected it to taste like oatmeal but it didn’t quite have the same consistency or flavor. It was thick and creamy, but smoother than oats. Very tasty!

The Proposal

After our yummy lobster ravioli dinner last night, Ryan and I watched The Proposal. Great movie! We both really like Ryan Reynolds (Ryan has a man-crush on him & I just have a plain old crush) and think Sandra Bullock is hilarious. The movie was very funny and also very sweet. Great recommendation, Mama!

  1. Ryan Reynolds is SUCH a hottie!!!! I was actually a tiny bit disappointed in the movie. Maybe I was just hoping for more Ryan-nakedness.

  2. I looooove The Proposal…I bought it the day it came out, and that’s saying a lot since I never buy movies! My favorite part is when the grandma and Sandra Bullock are chanting…love it!

  3. What a fun run.. go you!! I really want to see The Proposal.. its on my list for this weekend!
