a dinner bert would love

Tonight, we had oatmeal for dinner. Not fancy, I know, but I didn't feel like making anything so the fact that I made non-instant, non-microwaved oatmeal (we don't eat either of those, except once when I made myself some oatmeal at school and never brought my bowl back so I could make it again) is saying something.

I made old-fashioned oats. I added diced apples when I added the oats. After it cooked, I added dried blueberries, Trader Joe's Lowfat Mixed Berry Granola and a bit of maple syrup. It was very filling but not all that colorful. (I really wanted to add parsley to liven up the color...old habit from the OG. I resisted.)

Cardo is working a wonderful open-to-close tonight. I have a million pages left of The Faerie Queene to read and I still have more annotations to write. Thanks be that this semester is ending soon.

Only six more days until we go to the booksale!

Mmm, oatmeal. Part of my spoon-food fetish is oatmeal, and I like Cream of Wheat too. I also like to jazz it up with various additions, yum yum! Yay for Bert-ish dinners.

Don't forget, you still need to tell me the wheres and whens of this book sale!
