The Joke’s On Me

04/02/2011 at 6:16 pm 59 comments

We are finally in April! Hope you all had a great April Fool’s day and no one got pranked on (at least too bad ;)) My darling boyfriend decided to text me at the gym telling me we had to break up because there was someone else. Me, being completely oblivious that it was April Fools totally believed him!! Luckily he called me 2 seconds later to say it was a joke. Nonetheless the joke was on meΒ 

I had a great breakfast before my workout. I got the idea from Kate and her Big Bad Mama Jama Overnight Oats who followed Katie’s voluminous oat trick and turned them into overnight oats.

This was my final product

The texture was very different than any kind of oats I’d made before. As soon as I pulled it out of the fridge in the morning it was really thick. I topped it with peanuts, cinnamon raisin pb, and 1/2 of a 100 calorie snack pack.

Btw if you’re wondering how many oatmeal toppings I have in my pantry, I decided to take a picture πŸ˜€

A look inside FGF kitchen pantry πŸ˜‰

I also decided to try the Lemon Chobani that was sent to me as a lovely gift from the people at Chobani

I promise there is greek yogurt under there. I topped it with cereal, banana, strawberries, and chocolate chips morsels.

I gotta say I like the lemon, it’s not too pungent. Better than the peach in my opinion πŸ™‚

No day is complete without some kind of ice cream πŸ˜‰


Strawberry Cottage Cheese Ice Cream

By far the healthiest “ice cream” ever.

The ingredients:

  • 17 ounces of Cottage Cheese
  • 1.5 cups of frozen strawberries
  • Splenda to sweeten
  • 1t vanilla extract
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/3t xanthan gum

Blend ingredients until the cottage cheese has a whipped texture and the strawberries are completely blended. Add to ice cream machine!! It might just be one of the tastiest we’ve made in the ice cream maker.

Btw did you all know it’s National PB&J Day?! I didn’t have any jelly, how shameful 😦 I’ll make up for it tomorrow.

  • Any fun weekend plans? I’m going to a good friend’s bachelorette party so I’m pretty excited πŸ˜‰
  • Did any pranks get pulled on you? Or did you pull any? I had a friend put that it was his birthday on facebook and everyone thought it was true

  • 4. Andrea @ Vegvacious  |  04/02/2011 at 8:08 pm

    Haha—my pantry looks very similar to yours. I have to be careful if I need something from the back, because my piling and balancing isn’t always very sturdy.

    We went to our first Major League ball game of the season today with some friends ~ it was a super day! Tomorrow is all about R & R.

    • 11. Jenny  |  04/04/2011 at 11:50 am

    • 16. Jenny  |  04/04/2011 at 11:51 am

      Never leave an oatmeal go naked πŸ˜‰

  • 17. Tara  |  04/02/2011 at 11:06 pm

    I celebrated national pb and j day! You should’ve added peanut butter to your ice cream and it would be like peanut butter and strawberry jam. I definitely want to try that because I love cottage cheese!

    • 18. Jenny  |  04/04/2011 at 11:54 am

      Gotta try that next time πŸ˜‰

  • 19. megpinkgiggles  |  04/02/2011 at 11:48 pm

    • 23. Jenny  |  04/04/2011 at 11:54 am

  • 24. Hollie @ Lolzthatswim(andRun)  |  04/03/2011 at 9:47 am

    I’m not clever enough to pull pranks and no one pulled any on me so I suppose it was a good day. Ha. I agree though, I’m not a big fan of peach and fruit greek yogurts but I do enjoy putting the fruit in there myself.

    • 25. Jenny  |  04/04/2011 at 11:54 am

      Me too, I’d rather add my own πŸ˜€

  • 26. Hannah (BitterSweet)  |  04/03/2011 at 9:51 am

    It’s official- You have some of the best oatmeal toppings I’ve ever seen. Cookie on oatmeal? A healthy snack and dessert in one!

    • 27. Jenny  |  04/04/2011 at 11:54 am

      Lol!!! Thank you Hannah πŸ˜€

  • 28. Cara @ Chic Meets Healthy  |  04/03/2011 at 11:14 am

    That ice cream looks so good! I used fat free cream cheese in mine, I bet it had a similar texture! Hopefully your bf made up for that mean April Fools joke!

    My bf is the worst liar in town thankfully!

    • 29. Jenny  |  04/04/2011 at 11:55 am

      Can’t wait to try yours πŸ˜€

  • 30. Alexa @ SimpleEats  |  04/03/2011 at 11:24 am

    Oh my gosh your toppings! Can I come to your house and eat oats?!

    • 31. Jenny  |  04/04/2011 at 11:55 am

      Yesss anytime ;D

  • 32. Autumn @ Good Eats Girl  |  04/03/2011 at 11:31 am

    Love all of those toppings! I need to try the lemon flavor…I’ve heard great things!

  • 33. Alexandra  |  04/03/2011 at 11:49 am

    What delicious oats! and the toppings?! Wow! πŸ˜€
    Aww I didn’t know it swas national PB&J day 😦 Dang! I guess I’ll have to make it up today, too!

  • 34. Christina @ Food.Fun.Fabulous.  |  04/03/2011 at 12:05 pm

    That is an awful joke! I’m so lucky I didn’t get any pranks pulled on me. I was in the library working on my thesis all day on Friday!

  • 35. Sophia @ Raven Waves  |  04/03/2011 at 2:36 pm

    I would have freaked if my bf played that prank on me hah! At least he called you right after! πŸ™‚ My Sunday is going to be filled with reading and relaxing!

    • 36. Jenny  |  04/04/2011 at 11:56 am

      Nothing like some r & r πŸ˜€

  • 37. Alexandra (Veggin' Out in the Kitchen)  |  04/03/2011 at 5:43 pm

    I have so many oatmeal toppings too! Although, most of mine is my collection of nut butters πŸ˜‰ I seriously have over ten jars of different seed and nut butters. They’ve kind of taken over the pantry πŸ™‚

    OMG that ice cream looks AMAZING!!! I don’t have any xanthan gum… do you think it would work without it?

    Very glad that your boyfriend was only joking! The principle at my school tried to trick everyone into thinking that they had to retake CSAPS. I was kind of hoping that he was telling the truth because I’m a junior and more CSAPS would mean more half days of school πŸ˜‰


    • 38. Jenny  |  04/04/2011 at 11:57 am

      Over 10 jars?! Ok now I am jealoussss

      I’ve never made my ice cream without xanthan gum because I don’t use whole fat milk so it wouldn’t get as creamy. Protein powder has xanthan gum so maybe throw some in there πŸ™‚

  • 39. allieatfood  |  04/03/2011 at 6:12 pm

    Haha not nice! I’m glad that you found out it was just a joke soon after πŸ™‚ I need oatmeal toppings like that!

  • 40. katiivey  |  04/03/2011 at 9:34 pm

    I told my mom Karlyn was going to be a big sister πŸ˜‰ and then…at work, I fell for a piece of paper on the printer that said we could now use voice commands!

    ha! Embarrasing…

    • 41. Jenny  |  04/04/2011 at 11:57 am

      Lol!! Goes both ways ;D

  • 42. paoang  |  04/03/2011 at 9:58 pm

    Omg your boyfriend!!! I think I would’ve died right then and there lol. I’d be all like…WTF!

    And thos overnight oats look so good and thick! I love the topping pantry XD

    Oh my that “ice cream” sounds amazing! I can’t do cottage cheese unless it’s blended (texture thing) so this works perfect πŸ™‚ Thanks girl! Also, your oatmeal bowl looks delish!

    • 52. Jenny  |  04/04/2011 at 11:59 am

  • 54. Megan @ oatmealwithsprinkles  |  04/04/2011 at 11:55 am

    Look at all of those oatmeal toppings! YUM! I’m pretty sure when I have my own kitchen someday there’s going to be an entire cupboard dedicated to oats and oatmeal toppings. πŸ™‚

    Glad you liked the overnight oats! I haven’t had success with those yet…I’ll keep trying when it gets warmer out, but for now I like my warm oats. πŸ™‚

    That “ice cream” sounds delish!! That’s so clever!


    • 55. Jenny  |  04/04/2011 at 12:00 pm

      Overnight oats are the best for those quick days πŸ™‚ Plus it’s 80 degrees here, way too hot!

  • 56. simplynutritiouskate  |  04/04/2011 at 12:16 pm
