We are going out of town this weekend and it is for an exciting reason but I cannot tell you about it yet though.
Vee has inspired me to join in on a Giving Thanks Challenge!
Leah at South Breeze Farm is hosting it starting on November 1st. I will still be away but am going to attempt to start from the beginning! I will do a post on the 1st then keep a running list on my sidebar. It is so good to be Thankful and to remember to Whom our thanks should go!
I woke early today - a combination of a small boy climbing into bed with us and my hip hurting. I decided to make Baked Oatmeal for the family for breakfast. My husband will be so happy!
The recipe is simple but delicious.
3 cups rolled oats
1 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
1/2 cup melted butter
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3/4 cup dried cranberries
( I often add raisins instead and also walnuts. You could add any fruit you like)
Preheat oven 350 degrees
In a large bowl mix everything together very well. Spread into a 9x13 baking dish.
Bake in a preheated oven for 40 minutes.
It will smell divine while cooking and your family will love it!
Thank you all for your sweet comments at Emily's blog.
The photos are of one of my Red Sunset Maples in my front yard, in the early morning light. They have turned so late this year. Oh and you see that blurred spot in the middle of the photos? It is a mark on the inside of the lens of my camera? How does this happen? I guess I really can justify a new camera! One of these days. When we stop taking unexpected but wonderful trips. Yeah, one of these days.
