Time to pick back up on the ABCs of Fall/Winter Series!
O is for Oatmeal - I am an oatmeal fiend. I LOVE oatmeal. I can eat it for breakfast, lunch or a snack. Now, I don't subscribe to the myth that oatmeal "sticks with you" and keeps you full longer. I don't think it does lol. But, I find it to be a great healthy, tasty, eating option. I stick with maple and brown sugar.
Does anyone remember when we were younger, Quaker used to make oatmeal and you got a little pouch that you could squeeze on top? For the strawberries and cream there was a packet of like strawberry sauce, and with the maple and brown sugar there was a packet of like maple sauce. I'm sure they stopped doing that cause the packets were likely chocked full of sugar, but they were goooood lol. Does anyone remember those?
P is for Punxsutawney Phil - This year the good ole groundhog saw his shadow and predicted 6 more weeks of winter, which is usually a drag, but with the way winter has been going here on the East Coast, it almost doesn't matter. We've had 1.5 snow "storms" that accumulated less than an inch, and the rest has been 40-50 degree days. I'm not complaining, but we're definitely seeing some really strange weather patterns for the end of February. Global Warming anyone?
