Well, not really…but that’s where all of my stuff is that I’ll be needing until next (potentially) Monday. Our delivery in Ohio is scheduled between the 30th and the 2nd. PLEASE let it be the 30th!
I love those little pop-up hamper things…so much easier than a suitcase when you’re not flying!
Yesterday morning I made a delicious baked oatmeal breakfast. We had all the ingredients on hand and I used up the last of a HUGE container of oats. Mr. Prevention was happy to see that be tossed on this end. It was kinda really large! Plus I figured this would travel well and be a better option than McD’s Sausage Egg McMuffin during our 2 days or driving. 😉
Baked Oatmeal slightly adapted from Taste of Home
3 cups oats
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup skim milk
1/2 cup butter Smart Balance Light, melted
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
In a large bowl, combine the oats, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. In a small bowl, combine the milk, butter, vanilla, and eggs. Stir into oat mixture until blended.
Spoon into a greased 9-in. square baking pan. Bake at 350° for 40-45 minutes or until set. Serve warm with milk. Yield: 9 servings.

Result: This was delicious! If you try this, serve it with milk right in the bowl…mmm mmm! The original recipe, as you can see, called for butter. By using Smart Balance Light I shaved the recipe to 245 calories, versus the original 318 calories. It’s also lower in sodium with the substitution, as well!
Well, the movers should be here soon and I’m sure there’s something I should be doing in order to be productive towards this move! This week, you will see lots of guest posts! They are all wonderful, informative, and fun…and I hope you like them! I will give a little daily update of our progress, but other than that, I will be unplugged until next week…or until I have internet access! Have a wonderful week! Thanks for reading!
“See” ya in Ohio! 😀
