Last night, I decided I was going to make Katie's Voluminous Oats! So I combined the oats and water and into the fridge they went! The next morning, I felt like a little kid on Christmas morning as I walked downstairs with a hop it my step and opened the fridge to find....... oats that looked exactly the same as they had the night before! I knew that it had to be something I did (it definitely couldn't be Katie!), but it turned out that it was something I didn't do. I forget to cook them a bit before putting them in the fridge. Oops!! But, there was no way that I was going to let the oats go to waste, so I tossed them in the microwave for a few minutes and then returned them to the fridge for about another half hour. They still tripled in size!! It was so magical! I can't wait to make them again, but next time, I will read the directions a little more carefully ;) I topped my oats with a poached egg using Alex's method. I poached it for about six minutes and ended up with a perfectly done yolk! It was really fun to make and tasted delicious! (And, it turned out really cute too!)
And, I completed my goal for the weekend. I made Kathleen's Chocolate Date Muffins!!!!!! The only difference is that I made my muffins miniature! I love any and all things mini!
So for lunch, I filled a brown rice tortilla with some peanut butter and two more muffins:
The daily question: What have you baked lately?
I really recommend Kathleen's muffins!
I was so glad to bake again - it's been waaaaay to long!
