Party in a bowl

First, thank you to the Professional Vegan for guest-posting this morning! It freed me up to get a good chunk of work done :-).

Rewinding to last night, I was in a munchy mood when I got home:

My baby sampler plate consisted of apple butter, a prune, peanut butter, and a date … the combo of textures and tastes was an exciting mouth adventure :-).

Pre-sampler, my wild night out was a success. Ting, Jem, and I parked ourselves on the couch and watched the Sunday night lineup on Showtime. Who knew such shows existed?? I wish I had cable … though I’m normally in bed by 9pm so I doubt I’d actually get around to watching it. Ting and I also had a little non-food photo shoot … which we probably haven’t done since we were 16!

I got to bed a little bit after 12 and slept until 7:30, plthhhhh. So need to hunt down an eye mask for sleeping!

Since today’s a holiday for me, I made a bowl of party oats. Invitees to the party included 1/2 cup strawberry cheesecake ice cream oats mixed with 1/3 cup homemade apple butter:

Healthy cream cheese frosting (1/4 cup nonfat yogurt + 1/4 cup nonfat ricotta, cinnamon, vanilla, honey, coconut, chopped dates, unsweetened shredded coconut):
