It’s National Oatmeal Day!

Who knew? I didn’t know that October 29 was National Oatmeal Day, but I’ll celebrate almost anything, and oats are healthy, so why not?

National Oatmeal Day - Modern Oats copy 2I love oats and not just for breakfast, although hub loves my homemade granola and eats it every day when he’s home.

Sometimes when he’s out to sea, I’ll make oatmeal for dinner along with a fruity and crisp chardonnay. TRUE STORY!

Oats are a must-have ingredient in my made-from-scratch veggie burgers. and not a week goes by that I don’t make some form of oatmeal cookies.

Does anyone but me remember this song from the 1940s, MAIRZY DOATS, by The Pied Pipers? (Let me clarify; I wasn’t around THEN, but my mom would annoy me by singing it.)

“Mares eat oats and does eat oats and little lambs eat ivy. A kid’ll eat ivy too, wouldn’t you?”
