My Own Oatmeal Pot

IMG_7252 (640x427)

I definitely brought my own oatmeal pot to the lake.

I brought lots of oatmeal supplies:

  • non-stick pot
  • 1/4 and 1/3 cup measuring cups (the usual sizes I use when I make oatmeal)
  • bamboo stirring spoon
  • old-fashioned rolled oats
  • chia seeds
  • bananas
  • sliced almonds
  • Barney Butter

All the materials to whip up a great bowl of oats.

Which is exactly what I had this morning along with some scrambled eggs and cheese my MIL made.

Todays bowl was made with 1/2 milk, 1/2 water, oats, sliced banana (stirred in at the end) and topped with: slices almonds and a spoonful of Barney Butter.

We enjoyed breakfast on the screened-in back porch.

Bailey loved the view.

I’m loving the view myself. I’ve actually got my laptop out here and am enjoying the fresh mountain air and beautiful scenery. In fact, a breeze just blew through the porch, rustling the leaves like  someone strumming a harp. Ahh…if this doesn’t help me de-stress I don’t know what will! lol

Hubby’s sister’s two kids are playing outside – they’re catching tadpoles!

They just brought one up to show us. I love the curiosity of these guys!

More lake fun up ahead I’m sure! Cheers! 🙂

  1. I have such vivid memories of catching tadpoles as a child! I can’t even imagine touching them now. So funny how things change when we get older. 🙂

  2. I love looking at your yummy food!! LOl always makes me hungry though. hey, have you ever shared how you make your oatmeal with measurements? My daughter and I eat it everyday but with her being so little and very impatient, I have resorted to the 1 minute quick oats most of the time. I would love to know how you make yours since it always looks sooo yummy!!! I usually add some almond breeze (unsweetened vanilla) and some PB to mine. yum!

    • Thanks Stacey! I used to post exact measurements every time but now I just do it once in awhile. I will definitely add the measurements to one of my next posts. 🙂 At a high level, usually I do 1/4 or 1/3 cup of oatmeal, depending on how hungry I am.
