This morning started out with a very happy accident. Although it didn’t begin that way. Anyone who witnessed me this morning would have described the morning as a complete mess, and that would be kind. First I woke up way too late. Initial panic set in. Then I realized there was no toilet paper, paper towels, or any semblance of a paper product anywhere in the house. Great. Then as I began making coffee, I spilled about half the contents of the French press all over myself. Good-bye new favorite sweater. Then when I finished making the next batch of coffee, after changing, no half and half. Initial panic has turned into irrational frustration. Then it happened – the happy accident – with no other options I decided to use Eggnog in place of cream, and it was magical. Who would have thought that eggnog tasted so good in coffee? (And for just 1 point per 2 tbsp.) That paired with this yummy gingerbread oatmeal and the morning turned out pretty perfect.
