Peanut Butter and Jelly… Oatmeal…

Strangely enough, I tend to think of things sometimes that Vicky finds, well, offensive.

And so it was this morning while we were at our Weight Watcher’s meeting. I would have much rather been just about any other place in the world, so I figured that was mostly just wasted time… and I began to look at some of the WW food they had. The good thing about WW is that you don’t have to buy their food but this is supposed to be a capitalist country, after all, so…

Vicky said the oatmeal was supposed to be good, and I could help notice the flavors: Apple & Cinnamon, Maple Brown Sugar. Pretty much your standard flavors.

“They’re not very inventive with oatmeal flavors. You ever notice that?” I asked Vicky.

She did what she usually did when I start asking strange questions. She ignored me.

“You never see Orange and Peanut Butter, or Chocolate and Peanut Butter.” For some reason, I was on a peanut butter kick.

Vicky kept ignoring me… so I continued.

What would go with peanut butter.

“Peanut butter and jelly oatmeal!” I exclaimed. “Of course, it’s so simple!”

It is. Really.

And here’s the recipe:

1 package of plain, instant oats (or one bowl of plain oatmeal)
1 heaping teaspoon of peanut butter (crunchy or creamy, you choose)
1 heaping teaspoon of jelly

Make the oatmeal, stir in the flavors. It’s that simple!

Now, I’m just dying for someone to try it!

funny but pb and jelly in oatmeal just doesn't sound like a good combination. Yet, somehow, apple and cinnamon does. Why is that?
