Gorgeous, timeless, romantic, magical…yes, I am talking about today’s main event – the Royal Wedding! I was up and at it at 5:30 because I wanted to watch the ceremony, but instead of watching from my couch, I got my butt to the gym. Might as well knock out two birds with one stone!
My favorite part…
Kate’s dress of course!
When I told my mom how much I loved the dress, she agreed it was gorgeous but reminded me that my wedding attire will look slightly different! More like this perhaps…
Only time will tell…
Anyways, earlier this week, I decided that in honor of the royal celebration, I would make a royal breakfast for moi!
I had been eyeing Katie’s Cookie Dough Baked Oatmeal for a really long time and decided that today was the day! And let me tell you, it was a royal treat, and I honestly wish I hadn’t waited so long to make it! I was in foodie heaven as I took my first (and last) bite of this delicious breakfast! Chocolate Covered Katie, you are a Chocolate Covered Genius! I have a feeling I will be making baked oatmeal ALL the time.
Pretty much the only difference between my recipe and Katie’s is that since I don’t own a mini-loaf pan, I used a muffin pan. If you follow the recipe exactly, you’ll have yourself 4 little muffins…although you’ll wish you had more! Oh, and I used one tablespoon of maple syrup (she listed it as optional), and I used 2 tablespoons of peanut butter (which was also optional).
Please do yourself a favor and make these ASAP…you won’t regret it! Would I ever steer you in the wrong direction?!
I’m off to relax! I hope y’all have yourselves a royal evening!!
