Rice Cooker Oats and Vagabonding

26 Aug

Hello friends!

Hope you had a great weekend. Although we were travelling, mine was pretty low-key. We went to a soccer game with friends on Friday and a going away party for a friend on Saturday. Today I caught up on emails, blogs, and perused Pinterest. I am not a very committed Pinterest user, but when I log on you can count on at least an hour of browsing and many, many new pins! I’m in a crafty mood right now and have several Pinterest-inspired projects in the works that I’ll post about. Follow the madness: http://pinterest.com/kayliperfetti/

When we were in Colorado, we stayed with our friends who make their daily oatmeal in a rice cooker. It eliminates the need to babysit the oats- brilliant! This allows for morning multi-tasking. The oats turn out deliciously thick, creamy, and hearty. We’ve visited JWD’s parents for the past two weekends and pulled out his mom’s rice cooker to make oats both times.

So easy and convenient. This might be my next kitchen gadget!

Lately I’ve gotten much of my dinner inspiration from the new Forks Over Knives cookbook. Monday’s dinner:

Spicy Thai Sweet Potato Stew (made with lentils)

This cookbook is full of recipes I want to try.

Remember how I said we recently moved? We’ve been temporarily residing with our kind friends who offered to take us in while we searched for the perfect apartment. Last week we found it! It has everything on our “want” list, even space for a garden. I’m excited to share it with you when we get settled in.

Have a great week and thanks for reading 🙂
