Mostly Food and Crafts turns 1 today!
I am so excited and so grateful to everyone who has tagged along on my adventure this past year. I have learned so much from my fellow bloggers and I am thrilled to be part of this wonderful community known as Blogland. I originally began this blog in the midst of a relocation (almost) my husband took a job 9 hours away and we began building a house and prepping for a move. The kids and I had to stay behind and try to sell this house - Hubby drove back and forth a lot for one full year when we realized:
1. We couldn't sell our house here with all the new constructions going up around us
2. He was promised a lot more than he was actually given at the new job
3. We really didn't want to move
After exactly one year Hubby found a job back here, came home (earlier than I expected to surprise me on our anniversary) and life was normal again.
But during all this, I was lost and needed something- so I tried blogging. At first, like so many other bloggers, I started for me, just to have something to do. Originally I figured I would take a picture a day and blog about it but then I noticed most of my pictures were of food and crafts. And so began
Mostly Food and Crafts...
If you follow along you have noticed quite a few oatmeal posts for example; Peanut Butter Oatmeal, Oatmeal Cookie Pancakes, Baked Banana Oatmeal and Oatmeal Love.
Recently, I was sent some samples of Coach's Oats to try. Are you familiar with Coach's Oats? They prepare their oats different than any other oats you may have tried. The groats are toasted to bring the natural sugars to the surface of the oat, then cracked into small pieces. Their method means the oats are never mushy, always naturally delicious and cook in just 3-5 minutes on the stove top or microwave. One last thing about Coach's Oats - you can bake with these guys! They don't need to be presoaked or cooked first like regular steel cut oats. I received my samples a few days ago and have had them every day since - I love the texture and flavor of these oats. I haven't had a chance to bake with them yet - but I will soon. The Coach's Oats Blog is full of great recipes that I am eager to try. Also be sure to check out their facebook page or twitter to learn more about them.
So onto my Blogoversary Giveaway...Coach's Oats has generously donated some oats that I would love to share with you. My way of saying thank you for tagging along. This giveaway is for US residents only.
I have one Grand Prize, a 48 oz bag of Coach's Oats, I also have 4 smaller giveaways each consisting of 5 sample packs. That's a total of 5 winners. Good Luck!
To enter head over to the Coach's Oats Blog and let me know how you would enjoy your oats and leave a comment (to comment on my posts click on the bubble at the top of the post or the comments on the bottom) - that's it! I will choose a winner a week from today. Thanks Everyone!!
