Welcome to this week’s edition of “What’s New for Dinner?” Jaycie at CouponGeek and I have made a commitment to each other and to you, our readers, to try ONE new thing in our meal planning each week. There are several reasons for this:
I missed a week. Then I thought I would post twice this week, as I have two new recipes we’ve tried. I was all proud of myself…when I realized it was FRIDAY and it was time for THIS week’s post. #superflawed
This week’s new recipe wasn’t actually a new dinner …. it was a new breakfast! I really like to have nice sit down breakfasts on the weekends when we are all together. It is a good start to our day and a chance to sort of map out our day. We have a favorite Baked Blueberry Oatmeal recipe that I make frequently, so when a recipe for Baked Peanut Butter Oatmeal came across my Twitter Stream touted as “A Giant Oatmeal Cookie You can Cover in Milk”…. I jumped. You can check out the original recipe I got from Cheryl at Tidy Mom; but here is how it went down at our house:
This is not the same consistency as the baked oatmeal that we are used to and I think this threw everyone off…including me. As I’ve never had ANY other baked oatmeal…I don’t know which is right; assuming, of course I couldn’t have done anything wrong…but after we got over ourselves adjusted to the difference….we loved it! The consistency here was very soft, almost cakey. When we poured the milk over it, it got even softer. The blueberry oatmeal is much firmer.
*Hint* When pouring milk over a warm, baked item like this for breakfast….consider warming the milk first. Just sayin’.
What I Would Change:
