Ohhh how I love oatmeal,
love it in bread,
love it in cookies,
love it crumbled atop fruit crisps
and love it alone in a bowl,
Why should your oatmeal be lonely when it could share its world with raisins, apples, and cinnamon?
And if you're gonna have an oatmeal party why not invite a dollop of vanilla yogurt...not to be mistaken for a trollop of yogurt which would change the meaning of breakfast completely...
We have now moved from a party to... a festival...a celebration...a wild barn burner of a time...all in a little bowl!
Yes indeedy that is brown sugar and more cinnamon on that bowl of luscious goodness!
Oh be still my heart, you lovely, gorgeous, bowl of my most loved breakfast (well next to cold pizza or chocolate cake)
So go on everyone...
walk on the wild side,
throw caution to the wind,
live a little...
Make yourselves a party in a bowl,
Be the rebels you were born to be!!!
Note: I only use old fashioned oats, always and forever, I am just an old fashioned kind of girl...no new fangled oatmeal for me, no sir!
I put my raisins in with my water/milk when I'm bringing it to a boil before the oats are added...it makes them all plump and juicy.
I add my apples about 1 minute before the oats are done, that way they are still flavorful and are only slightly softened...cause I like a little bite to 'em. Hmmm wonder what that says about my personality?
I think I will just let that just lie there.
