Baked Oatmeal & 100% Comfort

I can't tell you how many times I've made this in the past 2 months.....
If you like oatmeal, this is for you.
Good for you.
{My kids love, love, love it... and beg for more... }

Baked Oatmeal (adapted from My Kitchen Cafe)

6 cups oatmeal
( I use Quaker Oats Old Fashioned but you can use quick )
2 cups brown sugar
1 cup oil
2 cups milk
4 beaten eggs

1 tsp. vanilla
1 tablespoon baking powder
2 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all ingredients together and pour into a greased 9X13-inch baking pan. Bake for 35-40 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

This is one of my favorite recipes.

For me, perfect paired with a cup of hot tea.

I can snack on these all day long.

The recipe makes a ton, and they keep at least 2 weeks !

You just need a Pizzelle Baker !

6 eggs, whole
2 sticks butter- melted to room temp.
1 1/2 C. sugar
2 1/2 C. flour
4 tsp. baking powder

2 TBS. vanilla or 1 whole small bottle of Anise. ( I prefer the vanilla! I've never tried the Anise version, so maybe you should just add 2 TBS of Anise instead of the whole SMALL bottle.)

In large bowl, beat eggs slightly. Add melted butter. Add sugar & vanilla.
Beat well.
Slowly add flour & baking powder.
Make Pizzelles in your pizzelle
baker !
Sprinkle with powdered sugar on each one when done !
Sit back and enjoy !!

72 days

72 days.

That's how long Grandpa had to wait
to dance again with "Nanny" again.

Nov 5, 2009 to January 16, 2010 was only 72 days.
After 69 years of marriage,

Bob was the last word Nanny said.

Margaret was the last word Grandpa said.

I can't think of anything more beautiful.

Bob and Margaret.

Together & dancing forever.
and ever.
and ever.

John 14:3
And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.
