This morning Jenna’s savory oats looked so delicious that I just had to make a batch for dinner tonight. Yes I ate oatmeal twice today. Honestly, sometimes I have oats 3 times in a day. I stopped eating a lot of processed products like bars and rice cakes and have opted for the cleaner grains like oatmeal and oat bran.
I added shredded veggies (red pepper, bell pepper, zucchini & summer squash) to the oatmeal which ended up cooking down nicely but not becoming a pile of mush. I topped it off with a piece of swiss cheese, an egg and hot sauce. It was quite divine.
So D has been requesting carrot cake – not sure why, he has not even had it before. Yesterday I made a batch of jumbo carrot cupcakes using Ellie Krieger’s recipe. Today I frosted them, with his help of course. He really likes the cream cheese frosting but has yet to eat the cake. Little bugger keeps telling me “tomorrow night mommy, I will eat one tomorrow”. I think he thought that there would not be real carrots inside cake – oops, I shouldn’t have told him.
Well Charlie likes them so at least I know that they are not bogus. He really likes the frosting too. Next time I should just make them a big bowl of cream cheese frosting.
Time for this mommy to hit the hay. I hope you had a great day. See you tomorrow.
