This week I have tried to jump on the eating breakfast bandwagon. I started with the Kashi/yogurt/fruit combo, and I am really enjoying it...but I know me, and I will get bored shortly....which got me thinking back to when during the winter Swistle wrote about her love of her baked oatmeal recipe, and I have been wanting to try oatmeal with accouterments ever since...okay, okay, I will wait if you want to go look, BUT even though she is completely awesome, come.back.
As I spent time this week thinking about oatmeal, I remembered that I bought some steel cut oats a few weeks ago when Amy challenged us to create a whole grain meal. (Which I did not do, by the by.) However, as I was thinking about oats, steel cut oats, little snippets of those Fluffernutter cupcakes kept butting into my brain and confusing me.
So, guess what I did? I made up a batch of steel cut oats:
Then I added a tablespoon of peanutbutter, and nearly TWO tablespoons of marshmallow creme. OH MY.
I tallied the points: 5, but it took me awhile to eat (which I like), and was delicious (which I love), and I actually enjoyed it more than the cupcake (it didn't taste better, I am not HIGH, but had elements of healthy and decadent...not just decadent) and now 2 episodes of Nurse Jacky later (THANKS, Nilsa), I am still feeling quite content on the hunger front.
Now we just have to see if I can stay out of the marshmallow creme..... (I won't tell you how I calculated the Points for the whole jar just in case I lost my mind and ate it.)
OH, and thanks for all the well wishes regarding my empty nest...but do not fear, I am FINE. Mr. P is on his way home from his last moving chore, bringing giant Low Cal Diet Cherry Limeades...then maybe we will be having some naked time in the...well, ANYwhere we want!!!
