Good morning, guys!
A old/new little visitor came to see me for breakfast this morning—my beloved quinoa in a Sunbutter jar
- 1/3 cup quinoa flakes
- 1/2 cup almond milk
- 1/4 cup pumpkin puree
- Sliced banana
- Coconut extract
- Topped with: PB & Co. chocolate peanut butter
If you haven’t been reading Itty Bits for a while (which is a good majority of you), you probably missed the early post about my melted buckwheat in a jar experience. Let’s just say that “experience” is an understatement…
To summarize the juicy scoop, I pretty much prepared my hot cereal in the pot as usual, but didn’t wait long enough to put the final product into my PLASTIC jar. Before my eyes, the jar’s plastic began to cave in, melting and collapsing upon the meeting with the heat. The grossest and most disturbing part of the story is that I ate them anyway, melted plastic and all. I’m going to blame this on the fact that it was a jar of Justin’s maple almond butter, and you know how that goes
Anyway, since that day—I have been extra careful with always letting the final product cool before pouring it into the jar. Sometimes I even go as far as holding the pot in the open freezer, just to be certain that I’m not going to have another nightmarish ordeal goin’ on.
And now for my December favorites! A few days late, but it’s the thought that counts, right?
