Honest Foods Oatmeal Contest
(The Husband here!)
Man these were hard to judge! From delicious oats I’d love to eat, to crazy pet-food oatmeal, to cute pictures – it was funny how many times I’d be sitting in another room and hear cackling laughter across the house because of a new hilarious submission. So without further hesitation, here are the winners in no particular order:
Trina’s Dog-gone Delicious Oats
It’s the “for sale” and “$1.00” that makes this picture! Not to mention I have a soft spot for Jack Russels. He doesn’t look like a great salesman though…
Rose H.’s Cantaloupe Bowl
Cool idea and a beautiful picture. Can’t beat that!
Maggie’s Catfood Oatmeal (featuring Couscous the cat)
As a treat, Couscous gets a smaller serving of oats plus 4 Savory Salmon Feline Greenies with a sprinkle of dried seaweed. I’m basically imagining sushi oatmeal… nice job!
Justy’s Banana Split Oatmeal
There were a couple banana split submissions, but this one took the cake because it’s the most decadent thing ever. I’d say I want this for my birthday breakfast but I don’t think I’d be able to eat for the rest of the day! Bananas, oatmeal, and three different topping scoops: peanut butter, strawberry jam, and honey. Top everything with a sprinkle of Granola Planks and a cherry, and serve while laying on the couch in a puddle of drool.
Jessie, exhibiting Model Behavior
How can I resist a naked pic!?!?! Nuff said.
Actually, I want to know who took the picture. Then it’s nuff said.
Cati’s Savory Prosciutto Oatmeal
I’m always a fan of stretching oatmeal beyond its sweet associations, and this was an excellent idea: oats, goat cheese, figs, and prosciutto topped with pine nuts and a balsamic reduction. Tres chic!
Monica’s “Bowl” of Oatmeal
I like this one in keeping with the theme of this blog. Instead of eating one of those horrible workout goo-packets when she runs, Monica makes a baggie of oatmeal (“real food”) and just squeezes it out as she needs it!
Sami’s Sunny-Side Up
We liked this one so much we made it a few days ago. Again with the savory oats – top your regular oatmeal with a runny egg, chopped basil, some grated cheese and a dash of hot sauce. It was pretty incredible, like oats-benedict. Sunny, the puppy, is pretty cute too!
Gina’s Oatmeal Facial
We had several oatmeal facial submissions and they all were pretty funny, but the dogs eating Gina’s face added that extra cute factor (or perhaps extra horrific factor? Either way she gets points for cuteness/terror).
Karri’s Peachy-Beachy Shark Attack!
You gotta hand it to this mom for making breakfast super exciting and creative for her kids. This oatmeal recreates a day at the beach, with sunken peach treasure buried under the waves, fruity Cheerios representing colorful shells and/or life preservers, a brown-sugar beach with nut-people of all different sizes shapes and colors laying out, and little fruit snack fishies swimmin around. Make sure to eat it like a shark, as pictured!
