It was back to rice cooker oats today! Long time, no see.
Rice cooker oats saved me during the first trimester when standing up to make breakfast each morning was a challenge.
Once my taste returned (around 15 weeks) hot stove-top oats were back at the top of my list. But my rice cooker felt neglected when I put beans in it instead, so I brought it back out last night for oats.
- 1/3 cup coach’s oats
- 1/2 banana
- Pinch cinnamon
- Pinch salt
- 1 cup water
–> porridge setting
1/2 cup cottage cheese stirred in this morning and topped with salty p-nuts, WF peanut butter and Grandma Candy’s Jam
But sadly this was not the oatmeal of my dreams. It was very gummy and just…not great. I shame since it’s so fun and easy to make! But nothing compares to stove-top…
I enjoyed my oats with some House Hunters this morning and nearly choked on my tea when I saw my friend Jessica from Davidson as the realtor du jour!!!!!!!!!!!! So exciting – and a great Durham, NC episode too!
Here was dinner with Jessica just a few months ago – she’s in yellow with the cute glasses!
I am a House Hunters FANATIC so this was a huge fun surprise : )
[PS. I have about a 95% success rate with guessing which house the people choose and I got it WRONG on Jessica’s episode!]
