December 19th is , a day to enjoy a healthy serving of yummy, fresh-from-the-oven oatmeal muffins! It’s been less than two months since we celebrated National Oatmeal Day and learned about the numerous benefits of eating oatmeal. Today serves as a perfect example of how versatile this staple can be: we’ve celebrated National Oatmeal Day, National Lacy Oatmeal Cookie Day, and today we found ourselves back in the kitchen making Oatmeal Muffins — perhaps our favorite of all three!
Today wasn’t the greatest day for me for a variety of reasons — some legitimate and some ridiculous. Worst of these is the fact that, just in time for Christmas, I appear to be coming down with something. Luckily, I knew I had a sweet treat to look forward to, and ending the evening with some oatmeal muffins made me realize that they’re just as much a comfort food as they are a breakfast snack. Granted, I did have to make the muffins myself since Chris has been really busy with some freelance work. But I got creative and cheated by using a box of Jiffy Oatmeal Muffin mix to make the task a little easier!
I think I might have just one more oatmeal muffin before I wander off to bed. I’ve got to make sure I get enough rest and feel well enough to celebrate tomorrow’s very important “unofficial”, National Sangria Day!
