My name is Terri and I am a breakfast skipper.  BSA- Breakfast Skippers Anonymous, anyone? We need meetings! We all do it! Coffee only in the early AM and by 11 we are shoving anything and everything into our mouths.  On my quest for health and anti-aging, I have incorporated oatmeal 4-5 mornings into our family’s breakfasts.  Boring yucky oatmeal?  No way!  You should know me better than that by now!

Sidenote, the kids are eating it and loving it, too!
I have adapted my mason jar oatmeal recipes from this I found on Pinterest-
