Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat says
Congrats on the column Kath, it looks great! It’s chilly here too and I’m supposed to be spending the afternoon out at my university’s homecoming football game. It’s my first year as an alumni and I haven’t a clue how football works, but I’m just hoping the rain holds off! Have a great Saturday!
Good morning! It’s a hot 52’F here in Maryland 😉 I’m going to make cookies this morning too! Good luck with your party!
Congrats on the column!!
enjoy your ‘housecooling party’.. I love it!!
we are off to the corn maze after CSA those morning :).. I just LOVE fall!!!!
Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin says
That column reminded me that I really need to try out some new grains! I’ve only tried quinoa out of all of those.
Have fun with your friends today! 😀
Very cool column 🙂
Love me some Office! Sad to see this is Steve Carell’s last season 🙁 boooo!
Have a super weekend….looks like you’re off to a great start with that brekky and “cartoon” 😉
Whew! That’s a chill in the air. I think its mid 50s here this morning, which I love.
Sarena (The Non-Dairy Queen) says
Perfect breakfast! I am enjoying my oats now! YUM! Have fun today!

Estela @ Weekly Bite says
I’m loving this cool weather 🙂 Its perfect for baking!
Oh I’m freezing this morning in South GA, don’t think I could stand that temp this early in the Fall! If you are in the mood for baking this weekend check out my recipe for ICED PUMPKIN OATMEAL RAISIN COOKIES! Have a great weekend!
A party? I guess this means you are in round 3?
Those oats are super LOADED and look amazing!
Good timing on the column — just bought some wheat berries for the first time!
Very good read on the column! And the oats looks fantastic, as usual!
holly @ couchpotatoathlete says
Congrats on the column Kath!
I hope you made it to round 3 — have fun at your party tonight!
Lauren at KeepItSweet says

oh KAth, isn’t it so cool to see the RD by your name at the bottom of the article? So proud of my oatmeal friend. 😀 Love and happy Saturday! Brrrrr it’s COLD here in Indiana!! Bring out the fuzzy socks.
Erika @ Food, Fitness, & Fun says
It’s chilly (60*) where I live too! It’s a welcome change to the 90* weather we’ve gotten all week! Your oatmeal looks scrumptious – so many different toppings! 🙂
Cathy B. @ Bright Bakes says
made granola with buckwheat yesterday! Best. Granola Addition. Ever. 🙂 Your oats, as per usual, look great.
Cathy B. @ Brightbakes
A housecooling party, what a great idea! I’ve never seen the magazine Breathe before but it looks like something I’d enjoy. Great column! Grains are the best!

Aw so happy you’re having a get together at your house! Can’t wait to see the spread 😉
Jasmine @ Eat Move Write says
You inspired me to make oatmeal now! That’s one of the nice things about being 3 hours behind you. Have a great day baking cookies and have fun tonight!
Jessica @ The Process of Healing says
You’re really making me regret not having oats for breakfast!
It’s pretty in NC too! While you are off baking cookies, I’ll be baking a cake! Haha 😉
The column looks amazing! I would LOVE to do something like that one day!! Your food looks like a wonderful start to the day, and who doesn’t love baking some cookies. I made some the other night and they are just wonderful! Enjoy the weekend and your cooling party!
Mary @ Bites and Bliss says
I love pear in oats..I need to do that more often!
lynn (The Actors Diet) says
very cool to see you in breathe!
The Office makes the best Saturday morning cartoons!
Great article! I was unsure how to cook all of those grains I keep hearing and reading about, but seems to be pretty much the same as the typical steamed or simmered rice. Wow, it is chilly in your area. Down here in Louisiana we are in the mid 80s.
Stephanie @ Laugh and Cook says
Kath, congrats on the column! I have never heard of the magazine before, but I will visit my local Borders/Barnes and Nobles store to check it out!
I can’t believe It’s already in the 40s in Virginia! Lucky! Oh, which cookies are baking today?
what a fun twist on a housewarming party. I am sure it will be a huge success!
J3nn (Jenn's Menu and Lifestyle Blog) says
Congrats on the column! I’m sure some “primal” eaters are cringing right about now, lol.
Your oats look scrumptious! Wish I was always in the mood for traditional breakfast foods.
I can’t see myself ever eating and enjoying figs, but fig jam is the best!!!!
I love love love it with crackers and cheese.
You didn’t know Steve was leaving?? 🙁 I think he’s the glue to the show (no matter how much I love Jim, Dwight, and Creed).
Samantha Angela @ Bikini Birthday says
Great article on grains! I like to use all of those types of grains for making bread 😀
I agree on the oatmeal and coffee combo – it’s just the best. I love waking up, having my favourite breakfast and reading food blogs. Best start of the day!
That bowl is so cool!
Erin @ Shortcut to Bliss says
I was stoked to see we are going to be in the mid-80’s over the weekend. I am so jealous of all this cool weather talk!!! I am missing the seasons*
Heidi - apples under my bed says
Congratulations on the column – that is fantastic! Peanut pear oats look fabulous 🙂
I’m going to check out that article. I love grains. 🙂
Jamie @ Food in Real Life says
Congrats on the column!! Oh and the cool morning felt unbelievable today. I love the crispness in the air 🙂
Oooh, published again! You really are a rising superstar of nutrition 🙂
