As the name of my blog indicates, I spend a lot of time thinking about home. Of course, my Heavenly Home is the one that is eternal, so that’s where I need to lay up my treasures, and that’s the one I’m striving for. But in the meantime, I have been given this tiny piece of the here-and-now—this home on the edge of town, this family, this neighborhood—in which to serve Him. And, though this is in the earthly realm, I want the things that happen here to be investments in the Heavenly realm.

A Weekend Breakfast


Even the avowed "I do not like oatmeal" people in my house (ummm...that would be me) are eating this oatmeal.  I can put it together in five minutes...and then have a whole thirty minutes of "coffee time" with Ron before the girls arise.


BAKED OATMEAL

 Preheat oven to 275°.

 Mix the following ingredients... 
  • 1 1/2 cups oats
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup cooking oil
 ...and then pour into a buttered 9 x 13 baking dish and bake for 30 minutes. 


It's that easy!

This morning, I stirred in some dried cranberries and topped it with a handful of pecans before baking.


I plan to try it with other fruits too...blueberries? peaches? apples?

Yum!

  1. I've never been an oatmeal person, Cheryl ... but I'll bet this is delicious. It's been many years since I've given oatmeal a try, so maybe now is the time! Thanks for the recipe and the ideas.
