A special day...

..deserves special oatmeal! School was cancelled today due to the snow! This is the first "real" snow day we've had all year. I woke up to the sounds of kids playing outside (ironically it's the kids attached to the neighbors I owe cookies to! Today would have been a GREAT day to take them cookies.... maybe another batch in my future???) I was going to have banana oaties this morning, but the bananas weren't ripe enough for my taste. So, I (yes, I made them) my oats this morning with 1/2 cup skim milk and 1/4 cup vanilla soy milk! YUM! I loved it. After a quick eval of the pantry I decided on adding 1/3 cup craisins and 1 rounded T of Ghirardelli semi-sweet chocolate chips, because I LOVE chocolate oatie cookies. (note.. I put my 1/2 packet of splenda in the mixture before I decided on the sweet add-ins.. oops!) Needless to say I didn't need the splenda. This combo was a little too sweet for breakfast. I also didn't like the texture of the craisins. I love the way the hot blueberries burst when you eat them.. I will probably try this again with fresh berries. I also had a cup of cranberry/pomegranate green tea. All in all--- it's a winner! The roads look fine so I think I am going to make the trec to Russellville today to visit my Papa and do his grocery shopping as I do a few times a month. If not-- house cleaning and maybe I will dig a book out.
