Grocery Cart Challenge Recipe Swap

You know, I like all the seasons except for Spring because Spring in Washington is just rain, rain, rain. But Fall is my all time favorite. I think it has to do with chilly nights, and a roaring fire, and good books under cozy blankets. It's when structure comes to visit again as school begins. And with Fall brings all the cozy comfort foods like stews and fresh bread and warm hearty breakfasts.

One of the yummiest Fall breakfasts that we enjoy is Baked Oatmeal. It's healthy, filling and cheap. It's like eating warm oatmeal cookies first thing in the morning. Sometimes we add apples or raisins and then pour milk over the top so it's like a dessert. So here is a great baked oatmeal recipe for you to try.

I'm not normally a huge oatmeal fan, but this looks absolutely scrumptious! What a great recipe. Thank you for hosting and have a great weekend!

I have never tried baked oatmeal, but it sounds good. This week I shared a recipe for baked chicken. It's easy and delicious, and offers several meals from one chicken which makes it very affordable.

Thanks for hosting! I've never tried baked oatmeal but it sounds like it would be comforting and filling. I'll have to give it a try.

Hi Gayle! I love oatmeal in the morning... it's supposed to be excellent for weight loss too!

Thanks for hosting, as always. Have a restful weekend.

Hi Gayle, baked oatmeal sounds great. Have linked up my Sesame & Oat Cookies II for this event.

I've tried various versions of baked oatmeal, and love anything with apples or fruit baked into it, so your variation will likely get a spin in my kitchen!

I added a recipe link to one of my favourite soups in the "comfort food" category, which is a nice beet soup.

I might add the recipes for carrot, spinach (or nettle! yum!) or salmon soup when I have the time, but it's a little limited now... I think it'd cost you about 2-3 bucks total to feed the family with the basic beet soup... ;)
