    I really like baked oatmeal and was inspired buy your menu plan to make it again but I wanted to add a healthy twist to it. I’m an older “money-saving mom”, my youngest baby is 19. I’m at the time of life I need to make sure I am eating and adding the right kind of foods into my diet. I added two scoops of whey protein to the milk before I added it in to the mixture. I added 1/4 cup of flax seed meal with the oatmeal, and I added some walnuts. I cut back on the sugar and added some dried fruit. I used canola oil instead of butter. I’m also a preschool teacher and know that many kids would probably not like the nuts or be allergic to them and they may not like the dried fruit either. Just thought I pass along these ideas anyway. It’s never to early to develop healthy eating habits in our children’s lives.

    Thank you so much for devoting so much of your time and effort into your blog. Your blog has to be my favorite of all times. I’m a mother to an 18 month old and you inspire me beyond belief. Yesterday I made time for freezer cooking and you would have thought I was getting ready for a bake sale, haha. All of the recipes turned out fabulous! My daughter loves beans and rice. I performed a search on here and found a post of the various ways to eat on beans and rice for 1 week. I’m curious of which method your kiddos enjoy eating the most. Also, do you freeze the beans and rice recipe?
