This looks yummy! And thanks for the movie recommendation. I went over to IMDB to check it out, and I am pretty sure I haven't seen Paris When It Sizzles... but it does sound like one I would love!


I love oatmeal, too. And grits. Yum.


yum... I second the grits... with butter and sugar... or an orange squeezed on top...


I love the combinations - I would have never thought of coconut in oatmeal, but it sounds delicious - I will try this tomorrow morning. Thanks Joanne!


I heard on the radio a bit ago that oatmeal takes longer than anything else for the system to digest and so, as a long-lasting complex carb, keeps the seratonin pumping the longest and gives us that mellow feeling. Or, in me, that mellow, want to sleep after I eat a whole bunch more carbs feeling.


Question: Where do you get the dried pears, or do you dry them yourself? They were SOOOOO yummy in the scones!
