Wow, after several years ive decided to try and resurrect this little blog of mine. I recently told a friend I missed having a place to write. Then out of nowhere a blog "challenge" if you will came about on a public group im in. So here I am and I'm going to try and keep this thing going. Bare with me as I make changes and update content. Feel free to sift through my old posts, you just might learn something new about me....

Complaint of the Day - Oatmeal

Why are oatmeal packets so small? Seriously, 1 packet is great for a kid I'm sure, but for my hungry pregnant (or non-pregnant for that matter) self I need much more! 2 packets is nice, but it won't last long. I've recently increased to 3 Quaker packets in order to actually feel like the oatmeal filled me up. So let's see 10 packets in a box... I get 2 hearty meals and 2 so-so meals. What a let down. Sad story is I love me some oatmeal and will continue to go through boxes as usual. Today was Peaches and Cream - yum.

Oh wait! So this is my other complaint about oatmeal. I really like blueberry & cream but they don't sell it in boxes by itself like they do strawberry and peach. So sometimes I buy the multi fruit & cream box just for the blueberry. And I get like 1 meal of it and then I'm stuck with bananas & cream. Not okay.

Ha - i just realized my last 2 posts have been about food - can you tell what's been on my mind?

I'm SO right there with you! (Except I like the banana :)
I always hit the bottom of the bowl with 1 packet in 2.5 seconds- right as I'm really getting into it and enjoying myself. HATE THAT!!

P.S. I don't know what your plans are, but oatmeal is GREAT for your milk supply while breastfeeding, so keep up with the oat-loving-goodness :)
