First, Blueberry Almond Crumble Oatmeal. This was delicious, light and fruity. I didn't have any cherries on hand, so I substituted in some fresh blueberries. I haven't always been a great fan of blueberries, partly because I can't abide by their syrupy pie form, and partly because they're a bit too tart for me (usually) on their own. This oatmeal solved both problems, since most of the blueberries broke down a bit in the oatmeal, but there wasn't a horrible 'pie filling' syrup around them to contend with. Delicious.
White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Oatmeal. I used to argue that white chocolate macadamia nut cookies could be so much better if only the white chocolate were to be replaced with milk, or even dark chocolate. No more. This was perfect. I toasted the macadamia nuts for a few minutes in a 350° oven while making the rest of the oatmeal, and pulled them out to garnish towards the end. I know I've said this before, but this is now one of my favorite ways to have oatmeal. I was even going to have this as my birthday breakfast on Saturday, but alas! I forgot to pick up the macadamia nuts ahead of time. Still, this will be a regular breakfast for me as often as I can get away with it. Yum! Enjoy!
