Just Some Things I’m Lovin’ Lately.

Wowza. How is it already June 8th?

Time flies…

And speaking of time, it’s time again for another round up of things I’m lovin’ lately. ¬†Why? Because it’s been 3 months since my last one¬†¬†and because I’m feeling all sorts of love today. ¬†AND because I’m lovin’ uhhhh lot of things lately. ¬†AND¬†because I have been sick, busy and too tired to cook any extravagant meals, so if y’all want to hear from me, this is pretty much all I got right now. Capiche?

Oh, and…¬†

I kid. I kid. ¬†That’s all I got.

Oatmeal Homemade Dog Treats & Pictures from West Virginia

Hello. Sorry I’ve been M.I.A. lately. If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook, you already know that I was in West Virginia over the holiday¬†weekend, and then I was¬†hit by the plague as soon as we arrived home early Tuesday morning (early as in 1:00am) – not even joking…

Oh, and if you don’t follow me on Twitter and Facebook, what the heck¬†are ya waiting for?! ūüėČ Get. On. It.¬†

Anywaaaays, today is Day 3 of what I’ve deemed Mandy’s Solitary Confinement and the good news is, I am finally starting to feel like a human being again. ¬†The bad news is, it took 1.5 boxes of Kleenex, 1 bag of Ricola cough drops, 1 carton of Florida’s finest orange juice, 2 liters of Gatorade, a few Green Smoothies, lots of T.L.C. from Bryan (along with avoidance), and close to 40 hours of sleep to get there. ¬†Hey, I don’t fall often, but when I fall, I fall hard.¬†

Zucchini Cakes

Let me start with my good news!

No, I’m NOT pregnant…and no, I’m NOT getting married…

The good news is, with the help of Bryan and the girls at work, I have successfully completed my¬†Mayngo Mission. ¬†That’s right y’all, Mayngo Madness has finally subsided. ¬†Our tree has stopped producing fruit and we have managed to eat almost every mango from it – aside from the few that the squirrels got to first.

Darn rodents.

What I Ate: Day 1

Happy Sunday. ¬†Boy does it feel good to talk to you. ¬†This may sound silly but I miss y’all when I go a few days without talking to you. ¬†It also doesn’t help that Bryan is still gone…

Perhaps I’m going a little cuckoo?

Don’t worry, he gets back in 8 days. ¬†But until then…you’re stuck with me. Mwhahahahha.

Sweet Peanut Butter Oatmeal

Some of my favorite recipes are the most simple ones. ¬†It’s easy to get caught up in making meals with several ingredients, but some of the best meals only have a few! Like this Sweet Peanut Butter Oatmeal. ¬†

Cook. Swirl. Eat. It’s as simple as that.


Oatmeal is one of my favorite breakfast dishes. ¬†I’m not sure why. ¬†Perhaps because it’s warm and comforting. ¬†Or maybe because it’s so versatile and you can make every bowl taste so different!
