MMMMM Oatmeal!

Friday, October 8, 2010

Yay we made it!! I hope everyone had a good week. I am even more excited than normal for the weekend because we have a couple of friends coming up to visit. Our beloved Aggies are playing The University of Arkansas on Saturday at Jerry World (aka the Dallas Cowboys Stadium). I am so excited to watch the game with fellow Aggies and to spend some quality time with amazing friends!

I absolutely love oatmeal! I could eat it twice a day everyday. One of the things I love about oatmeal, is how versatile it is. You can throw in fresh fruit, almond butter, cinnamon, craisins, nuts etc. The options are pretty much endless. My all time favorite is oatmeal with frozen blueberries and almond butter.

However, this morning my cabinets were a little bare, so I had to get creative. I opened the fridge and saw my bottle of sugar free french vanilla creamer and thought, "hmmm this could work!" I prepared my oatmeal as usual, then poured in 1 1/2 tablespoons of the creamer. It was delicious!! Yay for experimenting.
