My Best Oatmeal Combo Ever (10.27.2008)

As the subject of this post tells you - this morning I made the best oatmeal combination ever. I am going to call this:

Carrot Cake Oatmeal
  • 1/2 c oats
  • 1/2 c skim milk
  • raisins
  • almonds
  • spoonful of carrot casserole
  • drizzle of maple syrup
The carrot casserole that my friend Mara made for the pot luck on saturday night is the secret weapon here. It is so sweet and completely addicting. I need to post the recipe up here! So anyways, I enjoyed every last bite of this oatmeal combo and even brought some to make at work today because I dont think I could ever get enough. wow.
Other snacks will be an orange and cinnamon roll larabar. Lunch is going to be some leftover turkey chili!
My legs are not very sore today, which is a good thing. My knees and lower back feel a little fatigued, but I feel better than I thought I would after 16 miles. The 2 walks with oscar in the park must have helped!

Hope everyone has as good a monday as possible...halloween is friday...yippee!!

Yes, please post the carrot casserole recipe. Best oatmeal ever is NOT a designation to be taken lightly. :) Very cool that your legs aren't feeling too sore!
