I mean, #NationalOatmealDay.
But if you’re aware of what I’m talking about, please don’t you worry. You didn’t miss it yet, even if you live in the different world time zones. This day still happens on October, 29. I’m just being ahead of time. Besides, if I don’t do it today, I might forget about tomorrow.
So, I’m extremely pumped today to finally contribute to the food days calendar.
Are you confused? Thus, You might not have read my yesterday post and recipe for Pumpkin Pork Stew. I’m forgiving you. Do it now:)
But in a nutshell, I’ve mentioned a few food days which I won’t miss this year. First in this list is National Oatmeal Day, as I already mentioned. Glorious, glorious day! I’m a huge oatmeal fan. It’s the best comfort satisfying breakfast for me. If I know it’s going to be a long day with a vague chance to have a lunch, I know a large bowl of oatmeal will prevent me from being
grouchy hungry for longer hours.
But talking about yesterday post, David, the main spiced food blogger of the Internet, was joking about a lavender day and my ability to make everything lavender, from chicken to oatmeal.
Great joke, David! 1:0.
But did you know I’ve already got a recipe for this Lavender White Chocolate Oatmeal?
Surprise! I guess it’s 1:1 now.
I made this delicious oatmeal in June, and I’ve been waiting so long for such a golden opportunity to share with you.
Let me say a few words about this fantastic Lavender White Chocolate Oatmeal.
It’s fabulous, but it’s a crystal clear statement. If you’re not that fans of lavender, this oatmeal has strong but delicate, not overpowering flavor. Sure if you don’t put too much lavender in it. Then, usually I don’t add any cream or milk in my oatmeal (just water), and that time [dramatic pause] I didn’t do that either:) However, incorporating white chocolate makes the texture just fabulous, creamy and dreamy. And wait…white chocolate. Hello, Chey! Now you don’t have any room to maneuver and escape from having some lavender.
All right, it’s time to wrap it up. There’are some other significant days coming, and I need time to prepare.
In a meanwhile, you should give a try this dreamy creamy Lavender White Chocolate Oatmeal. And then repeat. Or perhaps, you already added lavender in oatmeal? Or what’s your favourite addition to oatmeal? Tell me about your experience.
