This past weekend my husband and I got together with a few friends and went bowling. I used to bowl when I was a kid, and I actually won a few trophies over the years. Since I hadn’t bowled in awhile I wasn’t sure how rusty I would be. Well, I don’t know if luck was on my side or if I remembered some of my old tricks, but I won both games! I almost forgot how fun the game could be.
When we got back from bowling I wanted to make something I could just throw in the oven in the morning. I decided on something more nutritious and filling than my weekly Saturday morning Cinnamon Buns. I’ve been craving oatmeal lately and found this great recipe that I could choose fruit my whole family would like.
After cooking this oatmeal I let it sit a bit so that it wouldn’t be too hot for the kiddies. I also added some cream and a drizzle of maple syrup on top. I was really happy with the outcome and the little sprinkle of chocolate chips added the perfect sweetness without taking away the flavors of the fruit. It’s a great dish to make when company comes over. Make it ahead and pop it in the oven in the morning!
