I always forget that I can check out my favorite magazines at the library, keeping them for up to a week. Last week when I went there I stocked up on reading material, including some cooking magazines (shocker). I am probably one of the last people on Earth that has yet to get a Kindle, Nook or iPad. That doesn't mean I don't want one badly though!
Hopefully one will come in due time. I keep wishing.
A version of this baked oatmeal was in one of the magazines and was calling my name. I wanted something we could eat on for a few breakfasts in a row. It kept great in the fridge and I just kept reheating the leftovers and pouring a little milk over top each morning.
The little miss devoured it and the little man kept saying "I don't like it". You win some, you lose some, I guess.

And now for my giveaway! I just couldn't pass these classy cookie cutters up this past weekend. I got a pair for a good friend and a pair for my blog friends. Wouldn't they be just perfect to cut out some cute tea sandwiches, sugar cookies or even sliced watermelon for your next girl's night out?
I even thought of cutting out some brownies with them.
But then again, my mind always reverts back to chocolate. Sorry.
So, do you want to win these? It's easy-peasy, just answer the below question. And then pass on my blog to all your foodie friends. They might want a chance at winning too.
Would you rather have a fancy drink or a classy pair of high heels on your next night out? Sorry, guys, answer for your wife, girlfriend, or inner-lady.
I'll choose one random winner this coming Friday. Ready. Set. Go!*U.S. residents only*
