Gray autumn day-1

When the clouds scud across the steel gray sky and the wind brushes noisily past the windows and the beauty of orange, yellow, and red twirl and float across the Autumn sky, it’s time to bake!

The other morning it was gray and cold. I couldn’t resist.  I just had to have a warm breakfast even if it meant we started school later than usual.  I had been wanting to try a Peanut Butter Baked Oatmeal recipe for a long time.  The moment just presented itself perfectly for whipping up a warm, filling, tasty breakfast.  And I must say this recipe did not disappoint!  My children LOVED this, as did I.  It will definitely be put into the cold months breakfast rotation!
