The KERF B&B breakfast was scheduled for 8AM sharp!! On the menu: Super Topping Whipped Banana Oatmeal, by request :mrgreen:

I started on the pot of oats and got out an endless selection of toppings –

The guests were a little overwhelmed, but they made excellent choices and seemed to be very pleased with the delicious factor of their bowls :)

Mal’s selections were blueberry vanilla granola plank, chia seeds, cranberry pecans and white chocolate coconut peanut butter – he LOVED it!!!!

Tina chose coconut, granola plank, cranberry pecans, Naturally Nutty Chocolate Vanilla Almond Butter and some White Chocolate Coconut PB –

My bowl had some Apple Cinnamon ProBar, chia seeds, cranberry pecans and Naturally Nutty white Chocolate Cherry Almond butter. It seems Naturally Nutty was the hit of the show!

I also made some french press Spring Blend – they liked that too!

Our guests requested some morning exercise, so we’re going to the YMCA in a bit, then we’re off to Charleston for more Southern charm when Matt gets off of work! We’ll be joining a third blogger when we get there!

4 Amanda (My Summerizations) July 11, 2009 at 8:39 am

an oatmeal buffet is always greater than a salad bar in my opinion! 😀


5 Paige@ RunningAroundNormal July 11, 2009 at 8:47 am

You guys sure do like your oatmeal! Those fixings look TDF! 😀


6 Adi ( July 11, 2009 at 8:53 am

What a great host — if someone put out an oatmeal buffet for me, I don’t think I’d ever leave.
Enjoy your morning with the CnC duo!


7 Megan (The Runner's Kitchen) July 11, 2009 at 8:57 am

If the bakery idea doesn’t work out, perhaps you can open your own B&B! I’d be first on the list for reservations :-)


8 Jenny Marie (Jenny Marie Says) July 11, 2009 at 8:59 am

yum, what great toppings. i need to look into those chia seeds, see where i can find em.


9 Shannon (The Daily Balance) July 11, 2009 at 8:59 am

DELICIOUS toppings! Such a perfect host :)

You guys are an oatmeal assembly line – looks great :)

Looks like so much fun! Enjoy your day with Erica!


15 rachel nc July 11, 2009 at 9:37 am

looks good. i abhorred oatmeal for about 7 months–then i had a sudden craving this week. glad i like it again.


16 Ellen @ Peace in Motion July 11, 2009 at 9:43 am

amazing toppings lady!


17 april July 11, 2009 at 9:51 am

Wow what an amazing selections of toppings! I’d be in breakfast heaven!


18 Cait (Cait's Plate) July 11, 2009 at 9:58 am

I told TIna on her blog that’s so exciting that you guys get to be together this weekend!

Also – you should seriously consider opening a Bed and Breakfast with Matt so that I can come stay and have that delicious breakfast prepared for me!! Haha.

Have fun with Tina!!


19 Nicole July 11, 2009 at 10:03 am

Wow!! Now THAT’s a oatmeal toppings bar!!!


20 Deva July 11, 2009 at 10:04 am

Wow – breakfast looks really awesome, I like the different toppings you put out for the oats!


21 Melissa July 11, 2009 at 10:35 am

I agree with Cait above. You and Matt should consider opening a B&B or just renting out your guest room on certain weekends with a free breakfast bar. I’m sure the blogosphere would have you with reservations into next year! Have a fun day!


22 lynn (The Actors Diet) July 11, 2009 at 1:11 pm

Awesome oatmeal buffet! I agree with the comments about a B&B – how fun!!!


23 Jenna July 11, 2009 at 1:14 pm

everyones oat meal looks fabulous!


24 Angie July 11, 2009 at 1:34 pm

What an amazing selection of oatmeal toppings! Breakfast looks delish! Have a fun day!!

I agree- if you open a B and B – I’m there!


25 MQ July 11, 2009 at 1:57 pm

All that oatmeal looks delish!! And I like the idea of having various toppings too 😀

One question (for Kath or anyone else): Before I started reading this blog, I hadn’t heard of putting a nut butter on oatmeal. The first time I saw it was here… I’ve never tried it, but it seems like Kath doesn’t have oatmeal without it! Is this soemthine that she does uniquely, or was I living under a rock all this time ? 😀


26 homecookedem July 11, 2009 at 2:30 pm

MQ, I was putting on nut butter long before I started reading Kath’s blog… I think the popularity of the combination is when it get all ooey gooey in the warm oatmeal. I don’t know if anyone “came up” with it. I just like experimenting and figured if one can make peanut butter oatmeal cookies, why not put PB on top of oatmeal? Hope that answers your question. 😉

Kath, have a wonderful time with C ‘n C! When you open up your B&B, I’ll be one of the first guests to visit! :)


27 Jennifer July 11, 2009 at 2:55 pm

Ooohhh where are you going in Chucktown? I live down here in the lowcountry, so let me know if you need a restaurant reccomendation. Fives Loaves downtown is my favorite spot!


28 Ab Rocket July 11, 2009 at 3:05 pm

I know my wife would love this for breakfast! Each of the bowls look so delicious. I agree with everyone about the B&B. I would definitely make a visit!


29 Molly July 11, 2009 at 3:05 pm

Hey, I’ve been following your blog for a while now. It’s given me some great ideas for new dishes to try out, but my absolute favorite has been the oatmeal! It’s so easy to make and experiment with and tastes delicious.


30 Adventures of Alice July 11, 2009 at 3:19 pm

Wow— what a breakfast layout! That looks fabulous–I need to work on my oatmeal toppings! Have fun in Charleston!


31 Katey July 11, 2009 at 3:52 pm

yum, those bowls look delish! :)


32 Kath July 11, 2009 at 10:10 pm

MQ ,
I have no idea where I got the idea, but I def. didn’t invent it. Couldn’t live without it though!



33 Rebecca July 12, 2009 at 12:14 pm

your bowls are so pretty!! Love the oatmeal bar! It’s making me want oatmeal!


34 Meg C. July 12, 2009 at 10:03 pm

Kath, you should totally run a B&B! You’d be awesome at it. and, it could be oatmeal themed! hehe


35 Insurance Appointment Setting August 5, 2009 at 9:32 pm

Ladies, I am so inspired by the fantastic toppings that you have all brilliantly suggested, that I am thinking about opening up an oatmeal breakfast kiosk in Manhattan! And to think that when I was a kid I would sneak the bowl of maypo under the table for the dog to eat. Poor old Fifi would never have gotten any of these delicious oatmeal culinary delights.
