PB&J Oatmeal

21 April 2010

When did I go from the girl who religiously grabs a bowl of cold cereal for breakfast to the one who craves stovetop oats? It’s been a really slow transition, but one I’ve just recently realised.

Today, I went into the kitchen to fix something for my first meal of the day (it was noon, could I call it breakfast?). I debated a bowl of cereal, pancakes, eggs…nothing sounded good. So, I decided to make oatmeal. I’ve never been a huge fan of oatmeal, but after reading daily for the last couple of years, oatmeal has snuck its way back into my breakfast repertoire. 🙂 and I must say, that after reading her inspiring Oats recipes, I’ve grown a whole new set of Oatmeal Tastebuds. 😉

Today’s bowl was (is!) pretty darn good if  I say so myself.

I am almost out of my regular old-fashioned oats, but I have some quick oats I need to get rid of. 🙂

This bowl is:

1/2 cup quick oats. 1/2 cup water. 1/2 cup milk. liberal splash of vanilla. liberal sprinkle of cinnamon. heaping tablespoon of chunky peanut butter and less heaping tablespoon of huckleberry preserves.
