Last minute, we decided the illustrator should go to a convention in Chicago.  I hope it is a good trip for him!!!  Work it honey!  I swear nobody works harder than that man!  So, this leaves me solo...well, I am with the boys.  We got up at 4am and got him to the airport on time!  When I finally got home, I started baking.  I know, sounds crazy, but I needed to do something with myself and I promised I would bake the boys something today.  I know I will start to drag later, so, since I had the energy then (totally coffee induced), I got busy.  Like Jessica said...when I bake, I forget to eat.  I guess I was focused on baking since I was so tired.  I finally got around to eating around 9am.  I normally make oatmeal for the illustrator and myself, but was just me.  I went super simple with apple, cinnamon, flax and almond milk.  I love this combination.  The flax and cinnamon work really well together.  They seem to enhance the flavor of each other and the oatmeal too!  It also gives the oatmeal a thick creamy consistency.  LOVE it!  I enjoyed my mug-o-oatmeal sitting next to the sunshiny window and a hot cup of joe.  I am off to finish the cookies...the boys are anxiously awaiting...shortbread, peanut butter and chocolate...I can't blame them!
Have a great weekend!

Edited to add...Oh, quick question...who does twitter and do you like it?  If so, why?  Just curious...

    I don't twitter...I feel like between blogging and facebook, I spend enough time on the internet!! Twitter would be one distraction too many!

    That being said, I know lots of people do love it!

    Ironically, baking and cooking are what make me the least hungry. It's good to have food as a distraction but not feeling compelled to eat it.
    I use twitter mostly for procrastination, but it's also helpful to ask a quick question and get a response or make friends.

    I twitter. I do it because people ask me what I eat all the time. I post regularly what I'm snackin' on and then have the twitter feed posted on my blog. Ya' know, pushing the belief that the healthy lifestyle isn't so hard. :) It's neat cos it work as a good food diary too.

    Oats w. cinnamon and flax are what I eat every morning! Twins! :)

    mmm- that first picture is amazing! I wish I could get better close-ups...but alas, a fixed 50 is all I've got to work with ;)
    And glad I'm not the only one who forgets to eat when baking! :P And, I have a twitter - but haven't really gotten the hang of it yet!! If you get one, add me! HLTHYexposures

    I don't have twitter and I don't think I'm about to get it anytime soon...

    Enjoy your weekend!!

    I've just started to Twitter and getting the hang of it. I use it as a quick check in and for stuff I don't want all of Facebook to know.

    I have a Twitter account and I love it. I was against it for so long but now I am of course addicted! haha!

    hmm, the oatmeal sounds good ... but where can I get some of those cookies too!

    Just catching up on your posts - you are too much fun, love the corndog muffins!

    I hope your solo time is going well. I do twitter, but aside from a feed, I really hadn't figured out how to use it well ... thanks for the idea on the foodie log farty girl (and seriously funny name!).
