Super Simple Salmon

Last night I put together the mixture for this morning's breakfast....baked oatmeal. I got up this morning anxious to pop it in the oven. It needed to bake for 45 minutes, which seemed like forever since I was pretty hungry already. I was really hoping I would like it. It smelled so good while it was baking. I added a tsp. of cinnamon, 2 tsp. of ground flax and 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts to the mixture, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly.

After peeping in the oven window several times, my baked oatmeal was finally done. It looked a little dry, but as one of the reviewers had described it, it was like a big soft cookie. It was not as sweet as a cookie, which I was hoping it wouldn't be. I didn't want something terribly sweet. I would have liked to have had some vanilla yogurt to put on top as in the recipe, but I didn't. I sliced up half a gala apple to go with it and sprinkled it with cinnamon; adding some chopped apple to the oatmeal would have been nice. I also think that 4 servings is generous for this recipe. I was rather full after eating a fourth of it along with the half apple. I was very happy with this recipe and I will be using it again.

I have enjoyed this day, even though there wasn't anything exciting that happened. It just seemed like it was a very relaxing day for some reason. Probably because I was lazy and didn't do anything I really should have been doing. I worked in Rabbit's Garden some today. I decided to change the background. I also put up a poll on the right, after that I fixed some lunch. I had broccoli and pasta in a creamy pesto sauce with some salad mix and fresh broccoli. I used a garlic caesar dressing.

For dinner I fixed my Smokey Salmon patties, green beans and more salad with my Chipotle Mayo dressing. Below is the recipe for the salmon.
