It surprises people when I tell them that I don’t like to write. Writing has never been one of my strengths and I’m actually quite self conscious about it. *Whatttt? But you blog?* People are a little bit confused at this point because they assume that people who blog like to write. Then, they ask my why I blog if i don’t like to write.
Good answer Lee, Oatmeal Bake. I blog because I can make oatmeal bake look way too good to consume. *Just kidding.* I blog because I love photography. I really do believe that a picture can say so much more than words, which is why this post as a thousand pictures and very little writing. Less is more sometimes…when it comes to words. Enough jibber jabber, on to the good stuff. Here’s a little tutorial for you on how to make this scrumptious Berry Oatmeal Bake.
Step 1: Layer sliced nanners on the bottom of a baking dish.
Step 2: Layer frozen/fresh berries on top of nanners.
Step 3: Layer on oat mixture (oats, honey, egg, almond milk, baking powder).
Step 4: Add more berries and slivered almonds to the top of the bake.
Step 5: Bake at 350 for about 20 minutes.
How awesome is this baking dish? Rustic.
There really isn’t anything better than a nice big scoop of oatmeal bake with a dollop of Chobani and some slivered almonds on top.
It does get better. Add some sprinkles and voila.
Carly and I made this recipe last weekend while we were at home in celebration of her birthday, which is actually tomorrow. I really can’t take 100% credit for this creation because it was Carly’s recipe. She is quite the baker herself and all about presentation. Anyways, happy birthday Car :)

One last thing before I go. The boy and I went on a little outing yesterday to Stillwater, a river town that’s on the border of Wisconsin and Minnesota. It was beyond gorgeous out. Although it was still a little chilly, the sunshine made up for it. We walked along the river, window shopped, browsed an antique store, and had lunch. Take a lookski.

I found the colors on this fence extremely intriguing
Mason Jar Love!
This antique store was filled with mason jars! I am loving the metal lid.
I just had to take a picture of this vintage Quaker Oatmeal Tin.
Hope you all had a stellar weekend. I am off to have brunch with Carly and then to do some serious homework!
Writing or Photography…Which do you prefer?
Do anything fun this weekend?
