While I was doing that, Joshua got into the crackers.
And, yes, that is a Christmas towel you see on the right.
And, yes, it is from my parents house from approximately 14 years ago that apparently I thought I loved so much and it was just the nicest thing ever that when I moved out I thought I should pack it with me and transport it from Oregon to Alaska so it could hang in my house.
Last year, when it came time to put away our Christmas decorations, I decided to keep these old (old old old) towels out and use them as cleaning rags. 10 months later….
Maybe I will buy new Christmas towels this year. We’ll see.
Back to oatmeal.
After the oatmeal cooked, I added a banana.
Then the moment of truth! I was a little nervous my kids wouldn’t like it.
Lucas ate it right up. He never mentioned that he thought it tasted differently than the boxed sugary stuff from Costco, so win -win. Plus 24 points.
He wanted me to take a picture of him.
Then he wanted me to take a picture of his oatmeal.
Joshua loved it too.
He is drinking water with his breakfast today.
Oh, and me?
I freaking hated it.
I think I gagged. If it weren’t for my children watching me, I would have spit it out on the table.
I only took one bite.
Dude, what is up with this stuff? It’s like so…. natural. And plain.
Please please please help a sista out and tell me what I need to do to make this stuff edible. I really want to learn to like it because I know it’s so much healthier. I know it might take a few tries! I used to hate – loathe – asparagus, but now I sort of like it. So, I’m okay with trying it a few more times, but I must make it differently next time.
How do you do it?!
