Many of you know I just returned from a blogging conference in Nashville? What conference you ask? Oh Blissdom, you may have heard of it.
As I’ve mentioned many times over the past few years, we’re huge fans of oatmeal or rolled oats in our house. We definitely go for the traditional rolled oats over the quick cooking, there’s really no comparison. Not too long ago I was at Costco and found Quaker Rolled Oats for 0.63 a lb. Can you beat that cost per serving for breakfast? I can’t. Naturally I bought 50 lbs. I can safely say we’re fans of Quaker and if anyone wants to check up on that, I’ve got 40lbs in my freezer right now. (Why in the freezer? Well to prevent pantry moths, of course).
What can you do with 50lbs of Quaker Rolled Oats?
Oh that’s easy, in a large family they disappear rather quickly on their own, but the rolled oats have plenty of uses.
You’ve got your regular every day oatmeal. (We soak our oats to make it creamier). Don’t get stuck in a plain oatmeal rut, add any kind of dried or fresh fruit, top with pecans,
It makes a great blueberry muffin topping.
And the creme de la creme is making your own homemade granola.
If that’s not enough, they have plenty of recipes for Quaker Old Fashioned Rolled Oats on their website. Enjoy the resource.
*Many thanks to Quaker for sponsoring great events like Blissdom that help me grow as a blogger.
