The other day we were feeling creative at breakfast time, and, since we were having oatmeal that morning, we decided to make a friendly whale!
3/4 cup instant oatmeal (plain) cooked according to directions
1 small section of banana
1 small section of strawberry (or cherry, red grape)
Spread cooked oatmeal onto plate in the shape of a whale as shown. Next, thinly slice a small section of banana, and place above whale to look like a spout. Add a raisin for an eye, and a small bit of strawberry for a happy little smile.

We just finished reading a children’s version of Moby Dick. I read the chapters aloud each night to Grace (my now 5 year old). I discovered an awesome collection of a bunch of classics in adapted versions perfect for reading aloud. Since it was a used book store, I snatched up a ton of different books, including Journey to the Center of the Earth, The Secret Garden, Little Women, and more. It has been so fun for us to read these chapters aloud each night, and introduce the classic literature at a young age!
I suppose that, in honor of our recent read, we should name this breakfast “Moby Dick”.
