PB & J Oatmeal

First and foremost, Happy Birthday, Tito! Secondly, I have just hit upon a new breakfast sensation. As part of the New Year's resolutions to get fit, loose weight, etc, etc, I am trying to get into eating oatmeal for breakfast. Oatmeal is good for you. It has fat grabbing properties, and it can keep you full for a loooong time. I made a big batch last week and have been slowly working my way through it, reheating a little bit at a time for breakfast. Usually, I have it with a bit of honey and cinnamon, but today I thought I would up the protein content by adding in peanut butter and jelly. This has the potential to be really good, if I get the proportions right. Today's oatmeal is too peanut buttery, and I think grape jelly might work better than apricot. But until next time, happy eatings.

P.S. Even though its cold, we are getting an insane amount of sunshine in Virginia. I almost feel like I'm in Miami, until I go outside in shorts and flip flops, only to run in shivering and chattering. Ok, so I exaggerate, but the sunshine is awesome!!!!
