Trying a new brand of oatmeal...

Looks like an absolutely beautiful day outside!! The sun is shining, and it's in the...get this...the 30's!! Tomorrow it's supposed to even reach the 40's, and I can hardly wait...:)

For breakfast I tried a new brand of oatmeal by Arrowhead Farms (it's the 4 Grains Plus Flax kind.) I made it the regular way: 1 cup milk, 1 large banana, 1 handful of walnuts, and a little bit of peanut butter. It was pretty tasty and made for a bigger bowl then my typical oatmeal makes. I still like the 5-grain one the best though, only because it's creamier and doesn't have the "nuttines" from some of the tougher grains. But it did make for a nice change, and will definitely find its way into my "cycle of breakfasts." :D

Today I have a wedding shower to go to, so I probably won't be around until later tonight...I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend and feeling refreshed! :)

Just thought I'd share the brand of oatmeal that I swear by - it's the Dr. McDougall oatmeal (it's all one web address, but I split it up so that it would all show up in the comment box):

Enjoy the wedding shower, and the rest of your Sunday!!

your oatmeal always looks soo good! what is your favorite fruit to put in it (besides bananas)? I got some pears to try and I heard plums were good too, and obviously everyone uses the basics: strawberries, blueberries, raisins.

veggiegirl---thanks for sharing! :) I'm going to write the name down, and try it out once this oatmeal runs out! :D

emma---I used to make apple cinnamon oatmeal ALL the time, and it was always one of my favorites. I like dicing up bite sized oatmeals, and experimenting with apple juice/apple sauce, and always add in walnuts and cinnamon at the end. :) It also taste good with a small handful of raisins...so yummy! :)

Oh, and I also once made a tropical flavored oatmeal, using heated up pinapple chunks and raisins, and it tasted pretty good. I think it needed some tweaking, but it was definitely the start of something tasty...:D
