One ingredient, many uses

We love oatmeal.

And who doesn't love looking at that cute little Quaker man every morning.





Gary has seen amazing weight loss results eating oatmeal everyday for breakfast.


Hayden and Layla love a bowl with applesauce mixed in.


And I eat mine with Splenda and cinnamon, or berries, or bananas, or raisins.

Look what I found under the lid of the oatmeal container.







and they do vanish...fast!











Here is a close up picture to make your mouth water.

Look at those ginormous raisins, thank you very much Central Market.

I also have an amazing meatloaf recipe that contains oatmeal.

I will be sharing it very soon, right here on this blog. It is not just any meatloaf recipe.

It makes me hungry just thinking about it.

Can't wait for your meatloaf recipe!! We love oatmeal, too. That's so cool that Gary has seen weight loss results. I need to get better about having it for breakfast. I had been eating it with a small handful of chopped walnuts, a dash of brown sugar and pumpkin pie spice. Yum.

Hmm, I haven't had breakfast yet. I think I will make some oatmeal :)

I love oatmeal too...plain, cookies. I've never tried it in meatloaf but that makes sense and I love meatloaf. That would be nice right now on this cold day.
