Sweet Potato Oatmeal

As I stood in front of opened fridge doors this morning, I caught myself starring blankly at all the shelves contemplating what to eat for breakfast.  I wasn't in the mood for eggs or pancakes (gasp!  Never thought I'd hear myself say that.)  Then I saw it.  The lone baked sweet potato, leftover from dinner last night.   Initially I was saving this for lunch, but I decided instead, to mash it up and add it to my oatmeal.  I love sweet potatoes & by now, you are well aware of my obsession with oats.  Blendedbaked, in cookies, or as oatmeal, anyway you cut cook them, I'll eat my way through.  So it goes without saying, that these two together created a perma smile.  It's hard not to love breakfast when it tastes this good.  Happy Morning!
