I tried my hand at making Fig Oatmeal this morning. I basically substituted 3-4 baby figs for the banana. While they figs taste pretty sweet, they didn’t sweeten the oats nearly as much as a banana does. But it was still good. They also curdled the milk some, but by the time the oats were done cooking it was fine. They were extra thick too, which was good because that means more chew!
- 1/3 cup oats
- 1/3 cup 1%
- 1/3 cup water
- 3-4 baby fits
- Vanilla + salt
- Cup blueberries
- Stonyfield yogurt + maple icing
I also had a small cup of coffee a little later leftover from the husband’s pot.
I had to take my car in for it’s 90,000 mile service check-up this morning. Waaaaa. It’s gonna be a hard one on the pocketbook. I HATE car stuff.
Karen (my mother in law) and I are headed up to Davidson today to do some biking and have lunch. I’m enjoying having some freedom to do things like this – the weeks are really closing in on me until school – and scary Organic Chem – starts up. 2.5 to go.
