A Cherry on Top


DSC 0017

Happy Monday!

I hope you all enjoyed your weekends – ours was low-key but definitely what we needed.  If you’re just catching up:

Friday night I made Baked Ravioli and drank a $3.99 bottle of wine (and enjoyed it!).

Saturday morning I dug into the last of my Kodiak Cake Whole Wheat, Honey, Oat Belgian Waffles.

Saturday afternoon I declared some things are worth repeating.

Saturday night we had delicious, healthy and the easiest ever chicken tacos.

Sunday brunch was in celebration of Cait’s Plate’s 3rd Birthday!

Sunday evening I brought the heat with a deliciously spicy (and healthy!) pasta dish.

I also managed to sneak in a summertime cone for dessert last night.

And somehow despite that, I woke up wanting yogurt.

Yogurt with a cherry on top to be exact.

I filled up my mason jar with a slight layer of Trader Joe’s sunflower seed butter..

Then Trader Joe’s Non-Fat Greek-Style Yogurt + chia seeds…

Then some Cville Cluster Granola

Then a mix of red and rainier cherries…

Repeated once more and topped off with a cherry!

All that was left to do after that was dig in!

And wash it all down with some coffee

And because so many of you usually wonder…I in fact DID eat this straight out of the jar!

On a side note…should I cut my hair as short as it appears in this picture!?

    Love the double jars! I think you have really pretty long hair…. im sure it would look good either way though :)

    • Cait

      Thank you! And I know – that’s always my struggle…to cut it or not to cut it. If I DO cut it, I usually regret it!

    I like the hair shorter!! Maybe a bit longer than in that picture, but I think it’d look cute short!!

    • Cait

      Thanks Liz! :)

    I love the idea of eating this from a mason jar and cherries! Gosh they are heavenly right now! Hope you are having a great start to the week.

    • Cait

      They most certainly are. And parfaits from mason jars are the best because you can really get in there…which, let’s be honest is the most important part ;)

    that looks fantastic! i cannot get enough cherries right now – i’ve had a chocolate-cherry protein shake for the past 4 days!

    • Cait

      Oh YUM. That sounds so incredibly good. And I’m with you…cherries are where it’s at right now.

    Okay so your breakfast officially wins as the best looking breakfast I have seen in oh…forever! This looks amazing!!!

    As for your hair…I think you will look precious either way but I have always been very partial to long hair. Total side note…those turquoise jeans you had on this weekend and posted on Instagram…adorable! I must know where those are from! :)

    • Cait

      Hahaha – I love that! It was pretty delicious. You can’t really beat fresh cherries!

      And I agree – I’m partial to long hair as well which is why I NEVER cut it. It’s going to take a lot of thought before I make a decision for sure.

      And the jeans – you’re gonna laugh. I actually got them from Delia’s YEARS ago. They’re super comfortable!

    I’m enjoying shorter hair these days! You would look super cute with short hair, but then again, you look cute with long hair too! Oh and I’ve been loving the heck out of cherries lately too! They are so good right now!

    • Cait

      I know – that’s just what I’m thinking – it might be nicer to have it shorter for the summer! And agreed – they are amazing!

  • http://www.clairetherd.com Claire @ Live and Love to Eat

    This might be your most beautiful breakfast ever – and they always look amazing!

    • Cait

      Haha – thank you! It was definitely really delicious!

    You do have lovely hair but if you want to cut it don’t be afraid. Hair grows, don’t forget! I had long hair for several years until a couple years ago when the managers in the hospital lab where I’m a tech became picky about people having their hair up if it was long. I could see the point but I refused to have nice long hair to put it in an ugly ponytail every day (plus it makes my scalp hurt). I chopped it off a week later and recently went even shorter. I haven’t regretted it yet!:)

    • Cait

      Woohoo! I like to hear stories like that! And you’re absolutely right – the one thing I always forget is that hair grows! It might be nice to have it off my neck for the summer, that’s for sure!
