CANTALOUPEEE!!

I LOVE SATURDAYS!
As you may or may not have already guessed. I get the feeling that I start most of my Saturday posts out like that ^.
Any who, I love them and I hope you do too!

One of the main reasons I've come to have a deep, loving and real relationship with Saturday (seriously, we're like start-crossed lovers.... star crossed because a person can never truly be with a day... alas we are dooooomed! Ok, back to reality ;) is the long and luxurious morning to make something for breakfast and not be rushed to whip it up and scoff it down. To spend time with my belly in deciding what it feels like eating and then taking my own sweet time to create it.

This morning? The lemon/oatmeal combo just sounded too good once again! So into the saucepan went around 1/3 cup oat bran + 1/2 banana + 3/4 cup almond milk + 1/4 cup water + 1/2 lemon rind + 1 teaspoon lemon juice + 1/4 vanilla bean seeds scraped (sub in a drop of vanilla essence)
With some crunchy peanut butter on the bottom, in the middle and on top for even coverage!
But that wasn't all folks! Ohhhh no!
I was mindlessly peering into the freezer for some inspiration for this morning's fro-yo (tummy wanted yoghurt!) and noticed the snap lock bag with some beautifully ripe chunks of cantaloupe inside. Oh yes.

Into my mini food processor went a few chunks + the other half of banana:
Whazzed up slightly before adding in 3 big scoops of greek yoghurt and whazzing until smooth:
I made this before the oat bran so it could  set slightly in the freezer while the lemon-y oats cooked.

My super-super delicious breakfast:

Seriously though, my tummy was fairly impressed- good job Saturday morning, good  job.
That was one of the better aspects of the morning (not that the morning was bad in any means!) but I did have a chiropractic appointment to work out some of these funny back spasms I've been getting lately (Chiro thinks it's the beach running with cross country training at school- I agree!!) and then mum and I spent a ridiculous amount of time at the bank waiting to transfer some actual cash into my bank account (soo many people!)

But this cantaloupe fro-yo made up for all of that (even before all of that happened!)
Creamy, smooth, flavoursome, delicious!
And lemon oat bran is where it's at now-a-days:
Happy Days!

What about you?
Did your Saturday start with something delicious? What was it?
Do you prefer Saturdays or Sundays? For some reason I'm more of a Saturday fan... maybe because Sunday is closer to Monday? ;)
Ever put frozen cantaloupe in something?

That's it from me today folks. I hope everyone has a fabulous day- do something you love doing, enjoy yourself, smile and tell someone a compliment- it just might make their day! Bye friends!! :D

Just another picture of the cantaloupe fro-yo for your enjoyment :)
