Post #1: 18 years of living

Today I reached a milestone. I turned 18 years old. This morning I woke up, looked at myself in the mirror, and for the first time, I actually felt like I was older. However, it was only for the briefest of seconds. I don’t think the fact has actually sunk in yet.

Regardless of my age, there are some things that will never change. My love for pancakes, for example. Obviously I chose to have some for breakfast, and as usual, I enjoyed them completely.

Today, overall, was not too out of the ordinary. Even nearly being caught in a thunderstorm could be considered somewhat ordinary for this time of year.

What made today out of the ordinary, was settling in to eat Italian food and watching The Artist (a beautiful film), and then finishing off the day with rosé and carrot cake.

As my first year of adulthood progresses, I will continue to try and find the beauty in the little things in life, and remember as I did today, that joyful moments can be found in everyday.


Recipe: Frozen Oatmeal Pops

Today was Foodie Friday number 25! Over the last few weeks, in my spare time, I find myself constantly watching videos on the YouTube channel: Good Mythical Morning. Rhett and Link, are a comedic duo that often find themselves doing crazy experiments, playing creative games, and eating insane foods. In one of their older videos, they question “Will It Popsicle?“, and oatmeal turned out to be successful.

Intrigued, I decided to make my own twist on The Oatmeal Popsicle. As always, you could take your own creative liberties with this recipe. For example, you could try making it with milk (boiled for safety of course), dip the final product in melted chocolate, or simply reheat for a quick hot oatmeal snack!

Recipe: Cereal Cookies

Today was Foodie Friday number 24! For once we actually have a decently stocked fridge, so choosing what to make today was more difficult than I had anticipated. In the end, I discovered that we had a ton of cereal in the pantry, and there had to be something interesting I could do with it. Then I found the recipe that inspired today’s creation.

These Cereal Cookies are crunchy, sweet, and a tasty way to use up the any cereal left in the box that just isn’t quite enough to make into breakfast. You can choose any flavour or type of dry cereal you please, so experiment with different exciting flavour combos!
