Sorry I’ve been MIA.  I knew it would happen.

I’m about to go to work and I made some oatmeal for a quick lunch.  I wanted to share my “recipe” for any of you oatmeal lovers out there.  (mainly for tara though =)

boil 1 cup of water

add 1/2 cup old fashion oatmeal

let it get thick while stirring occasionally – about 10 minutes

add a nice scoopful of butter to a bowl/mug, two scoops of brown sugar (i love sugar), craisins or whatever dried fruit you like, and chopped pecans or whatever nut you have on hand.

I realize I use way too much butter and brown sugar, but I like to think the craisins and pecans offset the unhealthy calories.  And I’m pretty much a dietitian so I can say that and it be true.

    That sounds good. But happened to good ol Quaker packages of strawberry oatmeal? Now that you are practically a dietitian you are fancy?

  2. I eat otameal every morning! I love it. I put honey, cinnamon, a whole bunch of brown sugar, milk and raisins and MMMMMM its GOOD!

    Everybody knows that when eating something as healthy as oatmeal the calories in things like butter and brown sugar magically disappear, right? ;)
