I’m loving this oatmeal, it’s a great change of pace for breakfast and it has my favorite brown butter in the recipe! I’ve already talked about how I love brown butter, so I will spare you from that rant. I think I mentioned I’m trying to eat healthier foods and also make things a head of time so I don’t have to think about what I am going to eat. When I’m left to my own devices when hunger strikes I start grazing on snack foods like chips, pretzels, crackers, and other such unhealthy things. It’s like when I’m hungry all my good intentions go out the window if I don’t’ have a specific plan, anyone with me? I’m learning to make plans and cook ahead of time which really goes against the grain for this fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants kind of girl, it’s like too much structure in my life makes me nervous and feel like I don’t have choices, I know weird huh? Anyway, the great thing about this recipe is I can make this on Monday and have it last through out the week or even freeze it if I want. That means breakfasts done for me and I’m NOT tempted to eat my son’s sugar cereal 😀 , I’m telling you it’s terrible to have a sweet tooth that speaks the loudest!
