Good Morning with a Giggle


Oops! Sorry to eat in front of you, but this oatmeal is just sooo good! When Mum and I were in Ireland a few years ago, we had the most delicious breakfasts every morning. Even the oatmeal was scrumptious; we ate it everyday! This is the closest I've come to replicating what we had there.

Here's what I did: 1 cup of rolled oats (not the quick cook kind) & 1 3/4 cup milk - bring to a slow boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and add a generous amount of golden raisins and about a 1/4 cup or so of light brown sugar. Cook to desired consistency and enjoy!


Crafty Secrets has these Domestic Goddess Creative Scraps that have some really funny sentiments on them. I made these cards for a couple of friends who could use a giggle lately.

The sentiment on this one is a bit hard to read in the photo. It says, "I hate housework. You make the beds, wash the dishes, and 6 months later you have to do it all over again." - Joan Rivers

  2. Yum, Marcy! I love a good bowl of oatmeal--the thick, chunky Irish oats are my favorite! I'm just starting to catch on...are you from Ireland? I'm pretty bright, you know! Only takes me about a year of knowing someone to figure things out!

  3. Julie - nope, I'm not from Ireland. My family has a strong Irish heritage, though.
