Ever since I went snowboarding in Wisconsin Saturday in 5 degree F. temps, I've been suffering with a cold and fever. But today I feel on the mend. Still weak but the worst is over. Anyway, hot oatmeal seemed like a nutritious energizing option on this cold winter morning. I just took what I had in the kitchen, some carrots, ginger, brown sugar, and steel-cut oats. I also sliced some oranges on the side and added raisins, cardamom, and milk, to the hot oatmeal. I have to admit, it really hit the spot! I feel good now. :D
Today it snowed all day and I decided to try a treat I saw in a coffee shop in Miami. Cocoa Puff Crispy Squares. I just followed the recipe on the marshmallows bag for rice crispy treats. But I substituted the cocoa puffs for rice crispies. A little sweet for every day but not bad for the day after snowboarding in freezing cold weather!
