Baked Blueberry Oatmeal + Giveaway

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.

Baked Blueberry Oatmeal
*feel free to substitute any fruit
2 c. old-fashioned oats
1/3 c. brown sugar
1 t. pumpkin pie spice
1/4 t. salt
1 1/4 c. milk
2 T. butter, melted
1 c. fresh blueberries
1/4 c. chopped walnuts, almonds or pecans

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and coat a 8x8 baking pan with cooking spray.  Meanwhile in a large bowl combine oats, brown sugar, and spices.  Stir in the milk, blueberries and melted butter.  Let stand for 5 minutes.

Transfer to dish, sprinkle with nuts.  Bake uncovered for 30-35 minutes or until knife inserted comes out clean.

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!
