SPLENDA TIP:

Splendas weird texture is difficult to disolve in most recipes. If you mix the amount of splenda needed into 2 tablespoons of boiled water, it will melt and be easier to blend into recipes.

This is soup is popular here, but I believe its origin is Scotland. They most often serve it when someone does not feel well. But I love it anytime and it is a great way to get in oatmeal. And I also like it a day later

Garlic Oatmeal Soup

This unusual soup is delicious, nutritious, and a snap to prepare. In case you're wondering: Brief cooking mellows the garlic and onion. And the oatmeal bears no resemblance to breakfast cereal - it looks and tastes like tiny dumplings.

Ingredients

1/2 cup uncooked rolled oats - not quick cooking type

1 onion, finely chopped

3 large cloves garlic, minced

4 cups chicken or vegetable broth

Salt to taste

Prepare the soup in a saucepan that holds at least two quarts. Start by toasting the rolled oats in the saucepan: Heat over medium temperature for about three minutes, stirring frequently to avoid burning. The oats are toasted when they darken slightly and start to smell like toasted grain. Put them in a dish and set aside.

Put the chopped onion and garlic in the non stick saucepan and cook for a few minutes, stirring. Bring the soup to a simmer. Add the toasted oatmeal and continue to simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Taste the soup and add salt if needed. Serve immediately. Note: Leftovers will taste just as good, but the texture becomes a little cereal-like if you don't serve it right away.

A little change from my Pita Pizza

Breakfast Taco’s
I am a Texas girl at heart

1 Tortilla (whole wheat if you can get it)
2 eggs (or Egg substitute)

As much of these as you like:
Tomatoes
Red, Green or Yellow Peppers
Onions
Mushrooms
Hot peppers (if you like spicy food)

Low fat or fat free cheese

Scramble egg, add finely chopped veggies when cooked add cheese and let cheese melt. Serve wrapped in a warm tortilla.

Pita Pizza,

Tomatoes
Red, Green or Yellow Peppers
Onions
Mushrooms
Low fat or fat free cheese

I grill this lightly in a nonstick pan than pile them on a Pita bread which I have sliced into 2 rounds. Top them with cheese and cover until cheese melts. That usually makes the Pita a bit crisp. It is sort of like eating a Pizza but a healthy one. And this I often have at breakfast, and it satisfies hunger without making me tired.
