Well, we stopped in at the Pilot station because we were promised $2 coffee and oatmeal.  Unfortunately, it was instant Quaker Oats…LAME!  So we went next door and I had this lovely bowl of oats…Pretty tasty I might say!

Thanks Oasis!

strawberries & cream

Strawberries & Cream


1 C cooked old-fashioned oats
1/2 C fresh strawberries
1 1/2 T brown sugar
1-3 t brown sugar for garnish
1 T water
2 T cream (So Delicious non-dairy creamer is what I used)

Mix strawberries water and brown sugar in a small sauce pan. Let simmer over low heat for 5 or more minutes, until the consistency becomes thick and gooey with chunks of strawberry.

Add strawberry mix to the bowl with oatmeal and milk/cream, stir well.  Sprinkle with brown sugar.


mOMent: Take smaller bites if you can’t digest the whole thing at once… good advice from my mother, and applies to more than just what’s for breakfast…

peanut butter, molasses & brown sugar

All of the yummiest earthy, sweet flavors combine to make this a very satisfying om of the day.  Not light, but not too heavy either…just peanuty perfection!


1 C old-fashioned oatmeal

1 T peanut butter

1 T brown sugar

1 t molasses

1 T roasted peanuts


Mix peanut butter, brown sugar and molasses with hot oatmeal until well combined.  Garnish with peanuts and enjoy!

mOMent: Seduction can be a powerful way to manipulate people and situations and your surroundings, in a not-so-positive sort of way.  Is there something that you manipulate using seduction?  Is there another way you can achieve your goals in a more authentic fashion?
