I think the blog is back up and working again! A HUGE sigh of relief. I updated my theme about 10 times the other day trying to fix the problem. Sorry to anyone who was actually trying to read my posts at the time.
I owe huge thank you to Kita over at Pass the Sushi for walking me through a few things, and helping me out. Please go tell her Hi from me! She does make Ah-mazing food, and has gorgeous photography, so beware you might get side tracked while you are there. You may remember she helped me out one other time, when I was moving she made this great Rosemary Bread for you! I wish we didn’t live 2000 miles apart, I owe her a drink at the very least!
Also, I owe a huge thank you to my husband. He is a computer engineer by trade, so he knows his way around the computer. But he has never touched a blog or wordpress before. He stepped in and really made things work again. Thanks!
So now that I am back to normal I have some food to share with you! This is my new favorite breakfast. I know, strange if you read my other posts about Cookie Dough Oatmeal and Chocolate Peanut Butter Oatmeal. But, I really think I turned a corner with oatmeal. It all started with realizing I like the texture of baked oatmeal a million times better. So I played with some flavors, and came up with a Peanut Butter and Jelly Oatmeal! How fun is that?! It may not look the prettiest (my husband says it looks gross, and can’t believe I eat it). But seriously, give it a try!
Steph taught me a little secret about baked oatmeal. You don’t really have to bake it! Just put it in the microwave for 2 minutes, and you get the same thing. Baked Oatmeal, ready in about 5 minutes, seems like a perfect morning to me! I like my oatmeal on the sweet side, but if you don’t, just omit the sugar. The jelly does a pretty good job of sweetening it on its own.
