My date… at a gas station?

Pin It!

But first, breakfast: I spread peanut butter on one of these: Banana Oatmeal Squares. (Plus a simple veggie scramble, unpictured.) I played around with the ingredients and proportions of the boatmeal, devising a new version of the recipe that yields 10 servings instead of just one. Or you can freeze the leftovers and have one ready as needed. […]
