a toasty solution

I have been buying (for about a year now) a yogurt (can't remember the name) that has granola that you add in, because I like the crunch in my yogurt. But the granola adds 80 calories so it basically doubles the amount of calories for the yogurt. So, since I had a coupon for Yoplait, I thought I'd try something new. I bought flavored Yoplait Light, then took some oats (like the kind you use to make oatmeal cookies) & toasted them in a skillet for a few minutes until brown & crunchy & cooled & bagged them. I just added them to my yogurt, & not only do they add some crunch, but a yummy toasty flavor as well! For very few calories!

I am looking forward to a good weekend! Poor Josh has been working all week when he comes home in the evening because of a deadline, so he will finally get to rest after today. We are going on a date tomorrow night (yay!) including Bride Wars if I can talk him into it :-) then hanging out Saturday, along with dinner with friends Saturday night.

Oh, & can I mention the beautiful weather today??? It was 80 degrees outside!! In January!! (Not that this is rare in Texas!) I don't mind, I love that perfect weather!

mmm I'm gonna have to try that toasted oatmeal in your yogurt thing. Do you store the leftover toasted oats in the fridge or in the pantry?

i have had them in the pantry for two weeks so far, but oats last forever.
