Delicious Baked Oatmeal

A few weeks ago, I had to do a brunch for a large gathering of people. My son was leaving on a mission for our church, and we were having a farewell send off. One of the things he asked me to make was this baked oatmeal recipe. He and his friends would bring this oatmeal  to share and eat for breakfast on mornings of their finals at school. He would always tell me how delicious this recipe is to make, but I had never tried it.  I made it a week or so before the farewell, and my family loved it! It is so delicious and hearty, everyone who ate it loved it. I made about six of them, and ended up freezing a couple. Worked great! Just take it out of the freezer and let it defrost on the counter overnight. You can eat this at room temperature, or you can warm it up in the microwave or oven. We always dollop some whip cream on top for extra yummyness.  ENJOY!

…So I had to show our half eaten pan of oatmeal…it is so good that everyone eats it so quickly, so I never have a full pan to photgraph. 🙂

I'm Erin, a busy mom of three, chauffeur, cook, housekeeper, and wanna be decorator. I love old movies, good books, and a daily trip to Lowes. We have recently bought a new we are fixing up and changing everything. This blog is to record our renovating journey. This is not the first house we have done. Actually, it is our third. My husband and I love a project. Any project. We both love working on our home, have the same taste, (which is great), and love working and re purposing things on our budget. We can show you how to put together a high end and creative look without breaking the bank. Taking something old and recreating it into something new and exciting for any room is my passion. Hope you enjoy this decorating journey with us!
