Alyssa gets you ready for the hill... with a great breakfast!

Winter has arrived and I am psyched. It's 4 degrees here in Montana and the kiddos are bundled up.  I didn't have them walk today, I was getting a bad rap around town for having them walk in the elements.  Come on, when I was growing up I used to have to walk in 5 feet of snow... oh wait that was my parents.  Have I turned into my parents? That's a whole 'nother" blog post.

Here's a great way to get your wintery day started.  My kids are loving it (and they are picky!). Perfect to get them fueled up before skiing. Thanks Cooking Light!

Baked Oatmeal


·                                 2 cups uncooked quick-cooking oats                             
·                                 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
·                                 1/3 cup raisins $
·                                 1 tablespoon chopped walnuts $
·                                 1 teaspoon baking powder
·                                 1 1/2 cups fat-free milk $
·                                 1/2 cup applesauce
·                                 2 tablespoons butter, melted $
·                                 1 large egg, beaten
·                                 Cooking spray


                   Preheat oven to 375

2                          Combine the first 5 ingredients in a medium bowl. Combine the milk, applesauce, butter, and egg. Add milk mixture to oat mixture; stir well. Pour oat mixture into an 8-inch square baking dish coated with cooking spray. Bake at 375° for 20 minutes. Serve warm.

Alyssa's adaptations- we are not a fan of nuts or raisins - they are stand alones, so I leave them out.  I add a teaspoon of cinnamon to the dry mixture and a teaspoon of vanilla to the wet mixture.
Enjoy and get ready to get your skis on!
