Oatmeal Love…


Here Gram, I made you some oatmeal!  Every time I'm home, Gram and I have this discussion about how we fix our oatmeal.  It all started because of this yummy porridge mix she sells in her store:  Three Bears PorridgeI always bring a couple of bags home in my suitcase.  There are also some nice oatmeal recipe ideas on the internet.  Generally, I make mine with cinnamon, honey, raisins, and fruit be it mango, a baked apple or banana.  Sometimes I even slap a dollop of yogurt on top.  You can add dry instant oatmeal to plain yogurt–like muesli kind of.  Very tasty with mashed berries.  Now I'm starting to sound like Bubba Gump, berry and yogurt oatmeal, banana oatmeal, oatmeal with dried fruit and almonds….I could go on and on.  I've always been a "flavored instant packet" kinda gal, but I think I'm hooked on "from scratch."  Anyway, Gram,  I was thinking about you today. I hope you like your oatmeal, made with love.


  1. oh ditto. oatmeal sometimes gets overlooked i think. there are soooo many yummy things you can do with it! i like to make a “pumpking pie” one. mix some canned pure pumpkin, a little pumpkin pie spice, and you’re good to go! another that’s good…cookie dough….a little vanilla extract, brown sugar and a few chocolate chips. oh i’m making myself hungry.
