I’m saving that movie for a bit nearer the time…but I’m definitely gonna watch Elf again! Will Ferrell is HILARIOUS!
My amazing chocolate-covered day began with stovetop hot cocoa-banana oatmeal! (Inspired by Kayla)
That’s 1/2 cup coconut milk, 1/2 cup water, 1/2 cup oats, 1/2 cup oats, 1/2 banana and 3 tsp hot chocolate powder. If you have actual cocoa powder, it would probably taste even better with that, but somehow I don’t have any! Must. Buy.
…then topped with the remaining chopped banana:
On a more serious note, I hadn’t mentioned it before, but over the last week, I’ve been having some pretty bad ankle pain. I’m not sure exactly what I did (I think I may have twisted it in the snow…), but I decided to rest it for a bit. Then, being me, I threw caution to the wind, and hit the gym on Wednesday. I can tell you, running on it didn’t help in the slightest, and it was killing yesterday! But I rested it and iced it over the last two days, and bought this…
…which is really helping! It’s feeling much better today, so I’m going to try some light exercise tomorrow morning (with this on) to see if it’s okay! Fingers crossed!
Back to today! I made a quick trip into town for a few essentials, but there were some serious food shortages because of the snow! In the supermarket, people were starting to panic, because there was absolutely no bread or milk! Scary, huh? Thankfully, we have enough milk for now, and bread flour to make our own bread, but it was a first!
And I was happy, because I picked up a few things for myself
Vogel’s cereal, dairy free grated cheddar, a Trek cocoa brownie bar, and the strawberry jam that I love! I haven’t tried the vegan cheese or the Trek bar before, so I can’t wait to give them a whirl!
Aren’t they cool?
Sometimes, I hate resting and not running/exercising! Today actually wasn’t really one of those days! I actually enjoyed doing pretty much nothing, and watching endless TV! As well as Elf, quite a few episodes of this:
Fact: Emma loves dark chocolate. Of course, I’m sure y’all already knew that!
I think this has been a long enough post as it is, so I’ll do a recipe post from yesterday’s baking adventures tomorrow! Now excuse me while I go into my chocolate coma…
So what are your Christmas movies? And what are your favourite TV series’?
Hope you’ve had a great, chocolate-filled Friday too! Have a great weekend!
