The first bowl of overnight oatmeal I ever made was The Oatmeal Artist’s orange dreamsicle overnight oats. I fell in love instantly. It was like my mouth had found an old friend.
Looks like today will be full of apologies.
1. I am sorry that I have posted so little this month. Although I spend all of my spare time writing, I doubt that y’all want to read a month’s worth of 5th-grade lesson plans.
2. I am sorry that it is the end of National Oatmeal Month, and I am just now sharing an oatmeal recipe. I actually planned this recipe before Christmas, but I didn’t make it until Saturday.
3. I am sorry that there are so few pictures (and that the pictures are so bad). I made this recipe at home, but my camera was at school. In my rush to eat the oatmeal, I didn’t realize that the white balance on my phone-camera was really off. These are the only two photos that were somewhat salvageable.
Now that all of those issues are out of the way, let’s eat some oatmeal!
If you do not know what someone wants for Christmas, get them food.
This seems to be the general consensus of most Americans, and I believe that it usually works well. As a teacher, my mom received piles of cookies, cakes, and treats from her students, and my family never complained about this multitude of desserts.
One of our favorites, chocolate covered pretzels, is the inspiration for today’s recipe.
Last Wednesday, I promised to share my recipe for Rice Krispie Treat Oatmeal.
I wish I had a great story about Rice Krispie Treats, but I don’t. Actually, I don’t like store-bought Rice Krispie Treats because they are too thick and dry.
But I do like oatmeal, and I like Rice Krispie cereal, and I like marshmallows, so I figured that I could put them all together.
It was a good decision.
Saturday evening after supper, I was successfully avoiding real schoolwork.
To begin, I downloaded a bunch of “educational” apps so that I could “review” them for my Educational Technology class (actually I just enjoy playing children’s games). In between trying to create mathematical sentences and type parts of speech, I decided to scroll through my drafts folder.
Lo and behold, I have multiple recipes waiting to be shared. I hope you enjoy National Apple Month with these apple cinnamon bites.
With fall starting later this week, I wanted to throw in one last summery oatmeal recipe.
I have only been to a Thai restaurant one time, but I absolutely loved it! This oatmeal recipe was inspired by the dessert I ordered that night: sweet sticky rice with mango. The name is self-explanatory. It is sweet. It is sticky. It has mango. 🙂
This overnight oats recipe is perfect for rushed mornings before school or work.
What would Sweet Potato Week be without a recipe for sweet potato casserole?
What would Kat’s 9 Lives be without oatmeal?
You may never know the answer to those questions.
