The best part of waking up is finding this healthy overnight steel cut oatmeal in the Crock Pot ready to eat. Add fruit and a dash of cinnamon prior to serving.
Last year I sort of went MIA….
It wasn’t because I wanted to, it was because I “had to”. I was so engrossed in producing my cookbook and meeting the publisher’s deadline that something had to give…unfortunately it was my blog.
Many of you quit visiting me while I was MIA–which I totally get. Now that I’m back, I miss you and hope you will return.
I sort of feel like the little boy in the Home Alone movie and you all flew off to Paris or Bora Bora and forgot me and I’m missing you all like crazy. I find myself going into the kitchen and pretending you’re all sitting there eating breakfast and laughing.
I really need to get a life…
At least you will all be proud to know I’ve stopped short of doing the movie version of sledding down the stairs; not because I wouldn’t love to go down the stairs in a sled, buuuuut I value my teeth.
Luckily, I am back and slowly you are coming back too and before you know it, we’ll all be here for REAL eating this overnight steel cut oatmeal with fruit and cinnamon and laughing.
