Steel Cut Oatmeal with Lavender

Oh me, oh my…first go to your favorite health food store and help yourself to a big scoop of dried lavender. The sound of the scoop, the floral aroma and the soft purple color of the dried lavender will start the senses going and you’ll want to bring it home and start using it in all kinds of new ways. I first bought the lavender to sprinkle on my morning oatmeal, I soon found lot’s of other uses..like sprinkling it on that afternoon yogurt or an evening scoop of ice cream with some honey.

So do something extra special for yourself today that costs penny’s, takes seconds and provides such lovely dividends. And be sure to brew some Lavender tea while your at it too!
