Making the "Real Thing"

I was always a Quaker Instant Oatmeal fan until I started reading the blog Kath Eats Real Food. Yes, as a mother of an 11 month old you would think I would rely on the quickest method to getting breakfast on the table. We all know that making/eating your own breakfast with an almost toddler is a miracle in itself. :) Blog readers, I PROMISE that making the "real stuff" is worth the time and effort. When making it and having to feed Bean at the same time I usually put the ingredients in the pot and prep Bean's food while I watch the pot. The method I follow is Classic Kath's Oatmeal. The beauty of this method is that you can change the ingredients based on your personal taste. Today I made oatmeal with bananas and some dried cherries and a sprinkle of coconut. Typically, I use a nut milk in my oatmeal, but I have to go to the grocery store and didn't have any. I must say I prefer the taste when it is made with milk. If you are using milk, especially a nut milk, you can nix the sweetener.
Banana and Dried Cherry Oatmeal
1/2 cup gulten free rolled oats
1 cup H2O
1/2 banana chopped
handful of dried cherries
squirt of aguve
sprinkle unsweeted coconut
Bean and I had a playdate this afternoon with Mrs. F and Munchkin. The two girls had a ball!!! As always the floor was a mess, but all that matters is they were entertained. Mrs. F gave me a crash course in juicing since Mr. Man bought me a jucier 3 years ago and it has been in the box ever since. We made organic carrot and organic apple juice. Munchkin LOVED it Bean....well we know how that goes :-)

On a funny Bean note look what the lady did this morning. She adored getting all the toys off the shelf, but once she was done she couldn't figure out how to get back down. For the recored I promise I didnt' put her up there.
