National Oatmeal Month

Friday, January 03, 2020

Hmm, I just found out that January is National Oatmeal Month. ( today is also national chocolate covered cherry day...but I never liked them)...so let's get back to oatmeal.

Growing up in New England, I can remember using maple syrup to sweeten up my cereal sometimes. Now I don't add sweeteners to it.
My brothers father-in-law got me to cook instant oatmeal with frozen blueberries years ago. Recently I have found a few baked oatmeal recipes online that also use blueberries, so I want to try them.


Finely ground oatmeal is also good for dry skin..so I also want to try some of the ideas online to help with my dry itchy skin on my legs and feet. Who knows maybe oatmeal will become a part of my "spa days".

    i love my oatmeal now. i used to hate oatmeal, but since my cousin told me how she made hers i tried it and now i can handle my oatmeal. i have added more to my oatmeal.
    i use the old fashioned oatmeal and i add to it a few walnuts that i break into pieces, a little sliced almonds, some vanilla flavored protein powder, almond milk, some peanut butter and if i need more liquid i will add some of my fresh brewed coffee. then i microwave it for about 3 minutes and it's ready to eat. YUM!

    have a good day.

    I love chocolate covered cherries. I hate oatmeal though and almost all cereal. Oatmeal tastes like wallpaper paste to me. The texture is like snot. LOL. I have to take oat supplements twice a day and gag it down. I have tried oatmeal baths and thought they were horrible too. You and everyone else can have my share of oats. LOL.
