I am a strong believer in the notion that breakfast is the most important meal of the day (emphases on most). I was in search of a recipe to conjure up for my monthly post and I just so happened to come upon this one in my inbox; baked oatmeal. It is super easy and simple. Double score! This recipe was sent to me by my local grocery store, Walnut Creek Cheese. I signed up for email alerts from them and they also have a bunch of equally yummy recipes on their website. I always say, one should never leave their chair without a smile and a satisfied tummy … baked oatmeal will get the job done.
While typing this, I happened to look up to see my trusty buddy hanging from the wall, my calendar. I owe much credit to this friend of mine. I can say that I certainly lost track of the days this month. I was reminded that April is almost over. Can you believe it? With these last few weeks of the month comes the final push of the school year. May is roaring in like a lion with last minute class scheduling and final testing for my oldest and fun field trips for my youngest. Most Amish schools are already out for the summer! The school year has flown by and I must admit that I am sad that my son has only a handful of days left of his elementary school career. Next year he transitions into junior high. Not sure where the time has gone but I want it back!
Yes, May will be jammed packed with us running around quite a lot. With that, I know that I will for sure be using this recipe often. It will definitely come in handy this summer when I’m getting ready to head out and explore the countryside with my kiddos. This is a “make ahead” dish so you can prepare it the night before and pop it into the oven in the morning. Try adding fruit for a topping or I like to drizzle honey on mine. Yum! Fill your belly and enjoy the sunshine. Oh, and when you push your chair in, what should you do? Smile. It’s your compliments to the chef…
