I'm an army wife, working mom of 2 kids, and a dancer for fun! My husband Tim works the at the combatives school here on fort benning. I work for MWR at Outdoor Recreation as their admin assistant...I absolutely LOVE my job I couldn't have found anything better! My daughter, Kennedie, was born in January of 04 and our son, Cale, was born June of 09 - that's right they are 5 and a half years apart! Kennedie is VERY involved in dancing. Cale is well on his way to become a fighter - daddy is already working on his punching and kicking techniques! This blog started out as a recipe sharing venture but now it's going to turn into a more "granola" way to live. Cheap recipes more homemade recipes and repurposing things. I'm a crafter at heart so i'm going to throw some of that in their too!

Homemade peaches and cream oatmeal

So I LOVE peaches and cream oatmeal but I don't like paying for it.  So I found a recipe online to make it homemade and decided to try it this morning!

First off you take 1 cup of water, 1/8th tsp salt and 1tsp of vanilla - put them in a pot and when it's JUST about to boil add desired amount of peaches (I food processed mine to make them smaller) and 2 TBS of sugar.  Let it finish coming to a boil.

Once you have it boiling add 1/2 cup of quick oats and stir. Stir to desired consistency.
Put in 2 TBS of vanilla yogurt for the "cream" effect.  Stir and serve.
My son DEVOURED my oatmeal this morning.  I gave him one bite of mine (normally he eats breakfast at daycare) to try and he wouldn't give me my bowl back!
