I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Ours was family filled again! A few highlights- lots of walks and a couple runs:
Chips and salsa on cuatro de mayo:
Baking my big oatmeal chocolate chip cookies for Josh’s brother:
Got my toes done:
Ate delicious food:
And now, onto more food! Mmmm…oatmeal. So comforting in the morning. As much as I enjoy a morning bowl, sometimes I wish it was just ready when I woke up (I know…it doesn’t take that long to cook, but…)
Lucky for me, its Secret Recipe Club time again!!
As a part of the club, each month you’re assigned another Secret Recipe Club blogger to make a recipe from. If you want to join, click here to sign up.
This month, I was assigned Alli-n-Sons blog. Alli is the Mom of two boys. As she notes, she is also a “wanna-be photographer, aspiring baker of all things chocolate and creative woman, all rolled into one.” She has so many fabulous recipes on her blog, but her overnight slow cooker oatmeal called out to me right away. I followed her directions almost exactly. My only two notes is that I would NOT use more than 2 cups of oats and that my slow cooker only needed 6 hours on low to do the trick. I used a combination of multigrain and traditional oats (please excuse the photos- it was EARLY and a rainy, rainy day):
After six hours, the oatmeal was ready and smelled amazing:
The recipe makes more than enough for a family of four:

YUMMMM! Thanks for the recipe Alli!
