Three Sweet Things



I have three things for you today: a recipe, a welcoming idea, and a link to a story on the power of kindness.

First

Here's an easy recipe.
It's oatmeal made with oat milk. It's a hearty, dryer version.
This recipe uses Quaker Old Fashioned Oats and their unsweetened oat milk drink.

Take 1/2 cup of oats and 1/2 of oat milk and put them in a pan together, and cook until most of the liquid is gone and the oats soften. I like to stir as it cooks, because it seems softer. It makes one serving and it is 175 calories.

What I love about the oat milk is that it creates sweetness.
I add a few pecan pieces, some chia or poppy seed, a few dried cranberries, and some fresh fruit.

It is one of our favorite meals to have for brunch or late breakfast or early lunch.
I find it really controls my appetite.

It also works with soy milk, because that's my daughter's preference. She adds pumpkin spice, cinnamon, or vanilla.

My spouse likes to add walnuts and brown sugar, but he prefers his made from water.

On a positive note, since my daughter has been at school, my meals have become more regular,
and I am wearing my zeros and twos again!


Second



I love making bouquets from our garden, and I place it on the front porch. It looks so pretty, and it's such a welcoming greeting for visitors!
Yes, the house is pink! We painted it after Christmas, and it is so cute! It is such a small vintage cottage, and pink is just the right amount of happiness for me, and it reminds me of our wanderings. We also painted the wicker, the shutters, and doors a french gray, and touched up the white trim.
My daughter is amazed that everything seems to work together, like dishes, and found and painted vintage. It's just that I stick with what I love.

Here's a link to two little stories of kindness here and here on this Jennifer Goble's blog.
What if we could tell stories of kindness instead of filming when offended?
