Thinking Cap is ON

Okay, now this steel oat thing has really got me thinking. Whilst exercising this morning the little hamster in my head jumped on his wheel. Of course I think about FOOD while exercising....doesn't everyone??? The possibilities are ENDLESS....................I am sure I am not the first person to think of these but here are a couple of combinations to keep it switched up a bit so you don't get bored.

  1. Mushed up banana, cinnamon, maple syrup, chopped walnuts and some vanilla extract
  2. Dried apples, cinnamon, maple syrup, chopped pecans and sweet dough extract
  3. Blueberries, honey, almonds and almond extract, perhaps a tablespoon or 2 of milk
  4. Dates, Pecans and a sprinkle of toasted coconut and honey
  5. Strawberries, honey and a couple of tablespoons of milk or possibly even the fat free 1/2&1/2 I have been using

I am thinking that adding just a smattering of extract could really impart some great flavors into these oats. The sweet dough extract is from KAF (king arthur flour) and this is an extract that most bakeries use in their dough when making pastries or sweet breads and rolls. I am thinking this could give a wonderful sweet buttery undertone to these oats w/out using any of the fat in butter etc. hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

Okay, I think I am speaking for all of us when I say...create a mail order or we may have to boycott you!! It's like a catch22--I want to read the blog, but the blog makes me hungry...the blog is so good, but my stomach is it is almost 10pm I can forgo the trip to the kitchen, but I will dream about stuff like oatmeal and pizza on the bge. I don't want to marry you, although, lucky for your husband, but I would like to supper club, with you doing all the cooking, of course...

I want to supper club so bad and I can't find anyone willing to do it. They are all duds. Perhaps you will all have to take a road trip up to Little Rock and have dinner some weekend. I will cook!!! We will sit on the deck...overlooking the woods and drink cocktails and eat good food. I have a 3400 sq. ft. house....I have plenty o'room.
