Baked Oatmeal Recipe

It's 'like a large baked oatmeal cookie with breakfast.'"

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes


3 cups oatmeal
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup margarine
2 eggs
2 cups milk
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 375 degrees Farenheit. Mix all ingredients together and pour into 13 x 9 inch buttered pan. Bake at 375 degrees for 25 minutes. The innkeeper also likes to add dried fruits and nuts and pour into small ramekins for baking and serving individually.

** I substitute 1/4 cup ground flax seed for 1/4 butter, and I add a Tbsp of cinnamon, and chopped nuts to taste, also I sprinkle a bit more cinnamon on top after it's in the pan.

Sometimes I make it in the 13x9 pan, other times I make it in muffin tins. Watch closely when in the muffin tins because the cooking time varies.

RAK Yarn

An e-friend sent me a surprise. A wonderful RAK! She sent yarns for me to use in making more things to donate for children this Christmas.
Some of it is awaiting "assignment" but most of it is already assigned for specific items. I'll have to work fast to finish the great-grandchildren's gifts so I can get going on the donate things.

See the greenish ball of yarn? It is shimmery and would be a beautiful ball-gown for a doll. Don't you think?

The little round box, has beautiful stitch markers in it. I have never had such pretty ones and can't wait to use them!

The note pad says "Got Guage?" which is a reminder that I surely need! My guage is frequently waaaaaay off~
What a wonderful surprise! Thank you so much Joy!
