For awhile now breakfast every day has been a sliced banana covered in 24-hour fermented goat yogurt (28.8 billion CFU per serving! declares the bottle,) topped liberally with honey. I've been craving it on a regular basis ever since I started eating it.

This is the most wonderful stuff in the world, and is absolutely worth the 30 minutes of close attention that the cooking process requires. Make a whole batch, eat 1/4, put the rest in the firdge in a microwavable container. I hate American Style Wallpaper Paste (I can't bring myself to call the Quaker stuff oatmeal), but I love McCann's. Awesome nutty roasty flavor.

Watch it like a hawk in the early stages, it has a tendency to froth up and boil over no matter how big the pot is! You can be more relaxed during the half-hour of simmering. I have never tried the soak overnight method. I do have a friend that does the crock pot while she's sleeping method (from Alton Brown's Good Eats) but says you either need to wake up early, or put in some extra liquid to have it work properly.

Big cup of delicious hot coffee with soy milk, and a whole wheat bagel with hummus.

I also had chocolate cake afterward, but I'm counting that as lunch.

I threw the rest away, but the can is pretty neat. My son asked for it, so I gave it to him.

Hopefully maple turkey bacon. I moved it from the freezer to the fridge to defrost last night.

From a linguistic standpoint notice how 2 of the adjectives are also nouns. We could say 'a maple' or 'a turkey'.

From a food perspective this combines 3 tasty items in one package maple syrup, turkey, and bacon.

I've never actually tried this brand or maple flavored bacon before, but I have high hopes.

That's a shame. It is worthwhile going out and getting a new (and hopefully fresher) can. Perhaps the seal's integrity was violated somehow? Unopened oats should have a pretty long shelf life.

My boss had two cans she was giving away. I think one had just come in the mail as a gift and she realized she had an old unopened one in her pantry. Her secretary must have gotten the new one and I must have gotten the old one. Oh well. Next time I'm in whole foods, which is about once a year, I'll check the bulk food section and see if they have any I can try for cheap.

I agree with you on the turkey burgers, but if you put enough nitrates and salt into turkey bacon, it tastes just like the real thing.

I was used to my other brand of turkey bacon, so I put some olive oil in the pan to make up for the usual lack of fat. I didn't need to worry, this brand was thick cut and they must have some pretty fat turkeys, because it was just as fatty as pork bacon. Pretty good.

I took pictures, but the camera is downstairs.

According to this site, out of the 45 calories in a single slice, 20 calories is fat. Bless them.

Oatmeal 7.
Oatmeal 7 is better than regular oatmeal. In fact, it is 7 better than regular oatmeal (The way mom makes it) Dad makes Oatmeal 7 which is only one better than oatmeal 6.

Oatmeal 7 is:

Rolled oats, the slow kind, not instant.
Milk or half and half
pinch of salt
vanilla extract
butter
Maple syrup, or brown sugar, or honey (No you can't have all three, that's disgusting)
Cinnamon

Add it all together and cook it. It's Oatmeal 7 and it's better than regular oatmeal.

My kids ask for it by name.
GFCF must make the appropriate subs with almond milk or something.
