Thought I’d share with you a recipe we enjoy. It came from my mother-in-law, and I think it’s the best baked oatmeal 🙂 The secret is DON’T overbake 🙂 It’s just so much better when it’s not dry!
3/4 cup melted butter
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
4 1/2 cups oatmeal
3 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. salt
1 1/2 cup milk
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla or maple flavoring
Beat butter and brown sugar till creamy. Add rest of ingredients. I add the oatmeal and milk last, alternating them so it’s less mess. Pour into a greased 9×13 in. pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 min. We love it while it’s warm!Jenna likes to get up early, so she “helped” me make it 🙂It all went well except for the time she hit high speed on the mixer when she had just dumped in oatmeal. Oh well, that’s easier to clean up than some things 🙂Definitely have to eat it with some farm fresh milk 😉
Another thing we eat at least 4-5 times a week is eggs. Devan has been asking to make them, so I let him if there’s time. He does really well with them. Sometimes I fight him, and tell him he will make a good husband some day 🙂 I get the eye rolls.
I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving! We had a yummy meal at Dale’s parents, and this weekend we are heading to Maryland to celebrate with my family. My 2 older sisters live down there, so it’s always nice to spend the day there!
And if you are one of the crazy people that go shopping on Black Friday, bless your little shopping soul 😉 I would rather milk cows than do that 🙂 Maybe if you go with friends, and stop for coffee and breakfast it would be worth it. My highlight of shopping is always the eating out 🙂 Anywho, enjoy your weekend whatever you may be doing!
