This isn't as bland as I thought it would be so that is good. There is a little bit of cane juice in there - among other things - but I did doctor it up a bit, too!
First...here's a look at what's IN this Oat Meal:
Organic rolled oats, organic evaporated cane juice, organic flax seeds, sea salt.
Fairly simple. I like that. BECAUSE...then I can add THIS! It's a new product from Wildtree! Hearty Oatmeal Mix-In Sugar & Spice! At first I was wondering what the heck I would use it for but it's DARN tasty! I've used it a few times in Oatmeal and really enjoyed it but will be tinkering with it in other things in the near future, too! As for the ingredients of this new product - there are only 4! Check out the nutritional info HERE.
After checking out some other things Wildtree suggested to do with this product I was hooked! Roasted Cinnamon Sugar Chickpeas - YES, PLEASE! Cinnamon and Sugar Baked Doughnuts? Perhaps! I wonder if Chia Seeds in Water would work as an egg substitute? Cinnamon Sugar Tortillas with Strawberry Salsa - Whaaaaat? That's up my alley - for sure! And Cinnamon Sugar Plantain Chips? Those might be interesting, too! WOWZA! I'm stoked about this product now!
I used the following for this dish...
1 C Basmati Rice - Cooked
Roughly 1 C Coconut Milk
1/2 t Ground Cardamom (or Coriander)
1 T Coconut Sugar/Granules (you could also use Brown Sugar)
1 C Pineapple - cubed
This was very sweet but also very tasty! It was almost like I was eating dessert for dinner! I would have this again! I really enjoyed it!
A few MISC items I'd like to share with you - I started sprouting Broccoli Sprouts and will let you know of the progress in the coming days!
After posting the review of Jokerz yesterday I received a very nice email from the Go Max Go Company thanking me for posting it on my blog. They also mentioned it on their Facebook Page AND Twitter. I was VERY excited about this! Thanks guys! I also found out that there are several online outlets I can purchase their products on so I hope to do that soon!
He sat on my chest - which he NEVER does. He sat on DH's shoulder - and NEVER does that either!
A little later he went under the blanket and laid with me on the sofa! Ahhhhhh! Peace and Quiet! Well, Paco! You'll be wearing sweaters in the evening from now on 'lil dude'.
In crafting news I have been tossing around different ideas with Modge Podge and Glues and other "stickies" and "textures" while using chalks and stencils to create a velvety look. I'm going to push myself to complete at least ONE Project in the next week. A little Mini-Goal of mine, I guess.
Speaking of Mini-Goals...I accomplished Ethiopian Foods last week - a few Thai Foods this week (thanks for the suggestion Eddie) - and NEXT week LINDSAY suggested Pakistani Foods so I'm going to accept that challenge. The following week I'm thinking Norwegian Foods...just a heads up!
