Home Sweet Oatmeal

Good morning!

So…..I had my choice to go in to work today or take the day off without having to use any leave hours. I decided to stay home so I can clean up the house, do some laundry, and get groceries  since we were out of town this weekend.  And because I’m on a roll of only working 4 day work weeks for 2009 so far (except for one week) – I don’t know how this has happened, but I decided I shouldn’t stop the trend if I didn’t have to  :)


I woke up wanting eggs and oatmeal, but then I saw Nick making oatmeal and his bowl decided for me!


Brandi’s Original (aka, the only way I would eat oatmeal at first)

  • 1/2 cup oats, 1 cup water, pinch salt, 1/2 banana, sliced
  • 1 cup frozen mixed berries
  • cinnamon
  • skim milk



Before mixing




After mixing, with a topping of a little skim milk





Plus some really good coffee Nick made





I’m off to start on my to do list for today –


What’s on your list for today?


  1. I would so be voting for staying home as well… Oatmeal looks yummy Brandi :)

  2. Hooray for staying at home!! You’re lucky – I have classes today.

  3. hmmm, stay home or go to work, stay home or go to work, stay home or go to work … TOUGH choice, ha!

    when my routine is disrupted from extra days off, etc, oatmeal is always my 1st step to getting back on track! so i think “home sweet oatmeal” is the perfect title :-)

    today’s to-do list: (1) homework!!! (2) cook for the week

    good luck on your list!

  4. Lucky you! But I totally would have made the same decision! Hope you have a great day off!

  5. Oh my gosh, love it! =D

  6. I’m at work – boo! But I get the day off on Dec. 26, so I guess that’s ok :)

  7. I’m home today too!! I’m sitting and enjoying coffee, gonna make oats in a little while, then getting a manicure and maybe a massage… gotta love days off!

  8. You absolutely made the right decision! Enjoy your day off! The oatmeal looks very yummy. :D

  9. Your oats look amazing!

    I totally would have stayed home too if I had the choice! But i had to work this morning, so this afternoon hold grocery shopping and homework!

  10. Maybe you can have eggs and oatmeal! Have you tried the savory oatmeal yet? That’s on my agenda for this week.

    • Hi Matt! Yes, I have tried the savory oatmeal – it’s really good! I should have, but once I started making the oatmeal, I was just too lazy to make eggs, too :)
