oatmeal is one of the best ways to
start off your day...
unfortunately, i'd choose french toast
any day; over boring's true.

this may be obvious to all you
sexy babies out there,
but it just recently hit me (thanks mom)
that i can add whatever i want to
my boring old oatmeal
so that it kicks me in the face (that's a good thing) a little more.

all you need is (love):
old fashioned oatmeal (far superior to quick oats but they'll work too:) .
chopped almonds.
and a spot of honey (let's be honest, i'm a girl who knows what i like).

naturally i'm going to need all of you
to tell me what other wonderful things i can put in my oatmeal
so that i don't get bored and fall off the wagon...or is it on the wagon?

I know this is probably weird I'm commenting on your blog...we don't even know each other. I'm Emily Bigelow's friend, so I kinda know you through her... and you also worked with my aunt Lauren at the gym in Woods Cross.

Anyway, I love your blog! It's always so fun and so fresh.

I'm always trying to convince myself that oatmeal is good, but I just can't stomach it...except for in cookies. Perhaps I'll give the blueberries and honey a try.

Avoid raisins at all costs. Unless you make them into oatmeal raisin cookies. Seriously, that is the only way I can stomach a cooked raisin. And... when did you change your picture on the side? I totally got freaked out when your face was blinking at me! ;)

Looks yummy. I actually like chocolate chips in my oatmeal--ya know, to cancel out any good I'm getting from it.

Oh I can make it taste good.. it just defeats the purpose of eating oatmeal. Actually I do love me some strawberries n cream Quaker instant oatmeal.. I'm a malt-o-meal girl myself. Then you can drizzle it with honey and brown sugar..
