What a wonderful pleasant surprise – it is 61* outside!!! We have had such a mild winter. Barely a half inch of snow so far. The weekend looks excellent. Hiking time! I actually have the window above my desk open right now and I can’t tell you how much I’m enjoying the fresh air. I’ve actually started to get really tired of the smell of our house – we need to breathe in the earth for mental health!
I decided on oatmeal again today and because the rice cooker was still on my counter [that lucky dog!] I made it in there again so I could be hands off.
Today I used the Quick Cook setting, added milk and waited 15 minutes. It was perfectly done! I would prefer the doneness to coincide with the end of a cooking cycle (so I could program it) but since the rice cooker thinks I’m making dry rice instead of soupy oats, it’s not its fault.
In the mix:
- 1/3 cup Coach’s oats
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/2 banana
- Pinch salt
- Blueberries stirred in at end and closed the lid for 60 more seconds to warm them up
- Almond butter + Cookie butter on top
Earl Gray because I thought it was cold outside. Never was I more wrong!
Here is a link to that awesome Smokin’ Mac recipe I made a few weeks ago!
Have a wonderful start to your weekend!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
