The Heat Continues

While the rest of the country continues to enjoy cool brisk temps, here in So. Fla we are still in the grips of a heat wave with record highs!  Last night the weather man was saying this is even hotter than our usual temps for August.

GREAT!  We are still without A/C and were looking for a break….hopefully it will be coming soon. I believe we are supposed to get a mini-cool down this weekend…..with temps dipping down into the frigid 80s!  LOL….my goodness…sure beats the 90s though.

Leaving the weather and moving on to the food forefront,  this morning’s meal consisted of an espresso with my tsp of sugar and then my yummy yogurt mix-in….or yogurt mess as I have seen it referred to on another website.   Yeah…I guess it does look like a big mess!

I have always hated milk since I was a kid  and many times rather than put milk on my cereal I  have put yogurt on it, with a fruit, and mixed it up.  I love the sweetness of the fruit with the crunchiness of the cereal, and the smooth creaminess of the yogurt all mixed up together.  Until recently I didn’t know anybody else did this!  Aha…It seems I am not alone in my weirdness then :).


Today’s  yogurt YUM (I just can’t call it a mess) consisted of 4 ounces of plain Fage 0% yogurt, a sprinkling of raspberries from this week’s organic box, 1/2 TBS of  almond butter (OMG I love this stuff!), 1/2 TBS Agave nectar, 1/4 cup Kashi GoLean, and 1/2 banana, sliced.   It was  so filling and  good!  That Almond Butter really added sumthin  sumthin to it!
