Baked Pumpkin Oatmeal

23 Nov

Well, same old excuse: zero time lately!  It’s not even that I haven’t been blogging, I haven’t really been doing a lot in the kitchen either.  Shame, shame, I know my name.  On the cusp of Turkey Day, I figured I’d share one last pumpkin recipe with you.  After this weekend and my annual slice of pie, I think I will be done-zo with pumpkin for a while.  At least until Christmas.

It’s like eating a healthy pie-ish dessert for breakfast.  What’s not to love?  This is a great, satisfying way to use up your leftover pumpkin puree (uh, if there is such a thing).

Oh, and I hope you liked my last post.  That’s what happens when you let boys use your computer in the wee hours of the morning.  I’d be mad if he weren’t so awesome and really, really ridiculously good-looking.

Make this oatmeal.
