So, my WIMBW recipe is by far my favorite one yet! And get this, the recipe does not contain peanut butter OR chocolate ;) I was looking through Jenny Grothe's 75 Ways To Love Your Oatmeal for something different than what I typically would create. I turned to page 166 - almost the last page! - and found her Key Lime Baked Oatmeal - which is one of my favorite desserts! I was definitely impatient for the 30 minutes that this oatmeal needed to bake - so I did some Zumba Core on the wii to pass the time :)

I LOVE KEY LIME PIE!! This Key Lime Pie Baked Oatmeal was so delicious and creamy. The topping gave the perfect amount of crunch and sweetness to a refreshing oatmeal. I really enjoyed this oatmeal and it definitely reminded me of my lovely, limey dessert - I may add a bit more lime next time. I was so surprised that this would be my favorite baked oatmeal by far! I think I may add this crumbled topping to more baked oatmeal recipes :) The crumble definitely added something special - I would probably still enjoy this oatmeal without it though! I cannot wait to make this one again!!

Well, I had a great food Wednesday - my lunches can only be so exciting with a half hour lunch break. But at least I can pack foods I really like - I am definitely not a sandwich person and obviously I say no to fast food :)
Well, have a great weekend! I am some awesome events I am attending this weekend and I cannot wait to share!
