What you can do with Oatmeal....

Now, why on earth would 'oatmeal' be a subject?  'Cause it's winter and there's nothing more satisfying on a cold morning than a hot bowl of steel cut oats.  Doesn't that look yummy?  Well, you can cook it the night before in your crock pot and it'll be ready for you when you get up!  Now that's awesome.  Find the recipe here.

And, since winter dries out your skin, what's better than soaking in a tub with an Oat Float?  I made a few of these for myself out of an old shirt, then topped them off with some handmade baker's twine.  
Find the tutorial for the oat floats here and the baker's twine tutorial here.

When you've used up all your oatmeal, you can make this Oatmeal Express train engine by recycling the box it came in!  Find the tutorial here

Yay for oatmeal!
