Sometimes it is all about the food...
Today I am sharing with you the recipe for the Baked Oatmeal that we serve for breakfast at the Camp Harmony Crop.
Baked Oatmeal
1/2 cup applesauce
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1/2 pkg instant vanilla pudding (dry)
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. allspice
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 cup milk
3 cups old fashioned oatmeal (not instant or quick)
Mix applesauce, brown sugar, eggs and pudding mix. Combine with other ingredients and put into an eight or nine inch baking dish. We usually spray the dish with some PAM. Top with sliced apple, raisins or nuts. My mom also says that she does pour some extra milk on it since it is kind of dry, sorry I can't be specific about how much, just mess with it and see what works for you! Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Serve hot with milk and brown sugar.
Now a couple of thoughts that I had... I wonder how it would be with banana pudding or butterscotch? Maybe some maple syrup in place of the brown sugar. I really like to take a recipe and play with it!
It was all about the food and the scrapbooking this past weekend. I spent the weekend helping my Chicksa Jody work on her daughter's scrapbook. We got a ton accomplished and we ate the entire time we worked on it. Some of my favorite scrapbooking goodies are cookies from The Pie Shoppe in Laughlintown . Specifically lady locks and fudge filled chocolate chip cookies. I also got my Krispie Kreme fix, had some delicious veggie lasagna, waffles and sausage with real homemade maple syrup, sweet tea... you get the idea right?
We also shopped our way from Somerset to Washington. We hit the WOW Outlet, Ollie's, Art Tech, JoAnn's, Crop Shop, and Michaels. I will have to post some pictures of some of my new purchases when I get a minute to photograph them. The added bonus of scrapping at Jody's is that we get to use the hot tub as well. I like scrapping at Chicksa's as much as any crop I have ever been to!
That is all for today! Take care!
