For Dinner:  Chicken Caesar Salad Wraps. Delicious!

For Dinner yesterday: Baked Oatmeal. This has become a favorite. Since we don’t get up in time to cook it for breakfast we often have it for dinner. I’ve included the recipe because I think my little Niece, Rita, that was thrown out the window today might enjoy it. Click here to read the story!

Baked Oatmeal
serves 2-3 adults (recipe can easily be multiplied - see note below)
1 ½ cups quick oats
½ cup dark brown sugar
½ teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon fine sea salt
½ cup milk
1 egg
¼ cup butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla
Mix ingredients together and pour into a greased 9" square baking dish (or an 11x7 dish, or a deep dish pie plate when multiplying). Bake at 350F for 25-30 minutes. Be careful to not crowd your baking dish, this oatmeal puffs up a bit while baking. Eat plain or add toppings of your choice.

Wii Update: We’ve held hostage a few of my student’s games. Marvin is getting into it! We are looking forward to getting some new games via Adam… Adam this is a reminder to keep your eye out. You only have a week left to purchase :)

Countdown: Betsy and Kari will be arriving next Wednesday at 10:30! Then the real fun begins!

Favorite Blog Writer: Windows Live Writer. If you are still using the old fashioned way to post blogs… do so no more! Google Windows Live Writer and download today. It makes blogging fun, fast, and easy. No more importing photos in the wrong order. It works like  a word processor. However it is only compatible for PC’s not Mac’s (sorry mom)

Books we are currently reading:

Marvin- Tipping Point and Atlas Shrugged

Lindsay- A kiss is still a kiss, a humorous marriage book


  1. what is this magic blogger you speak of?!

  2. Well, Lindsay eating oatmeal with cinnamon? It sounds good, I will try it. I don' know that anyone else here will - maybe I can cut the recipe in half!

  4. That recipe looks delicious. I think I may have to try it!

  5. seriously, do you put the cinnamon in? I can't imagine that.

    Walker would love it, he requests "oats" for breakfast a few times a week, I can only imagine how thrilled he would be if we had it for dinner sometime...

    love that snowy pic of Marvin!

  6. the real recipe called for 1 whole teaspoon of cinnamon... i cut it to 1/2 and maybe even a little less than that!
