Every Sunday morning for the past…I don’t know…forever or so, I’ve been making oatmeal for breakfast. It’s one day out of seven that I know exactly what I’m making without having to think…and it’s the easiest, most filling breakfast I can make on a Sunday morning. Sunday mornings are a little bit nuts, are they not? Or maybe they’re just nuts at my house. Somehow making it out the door on a Sunday to get to church by 9:15 with hair combed and shoes on the right feet for all six people (myself included) is quite a chore. Therefore, oatmeal has been my go-to meal on Sunday mornings.
Suddenly though, there seems to have been A Big Oatmeal Rebellion. Okay, I’ve got to admit…it’s not actually come on all that “suddenly”. The Rebellion has been coming on slowly…I’ve just been working very hard to pretend it’s not there in hopes that it will all go away. In other words, I’ve been ignoring the more and more frequent whiny oatmeal complaints and have lovingly replied to any oatmeal rebels that THIS is breakfast so hurry up and tuck your shirt in and get downstairs and eat some of it so we can try to be on time to church for once.
This week, I decided that before this Rebellion gets ugly I should do something really shocking and make something completely different from the traditional Sunday Oatmeal.
So check me out. I changed our normal Sunday breakfast plan…
