Irish Oats Giveaway

Happy Friday!

Today I’m back with another giveaway. It’s *almost* as good as a trip to Ireland.

Okay, no. A trip to Ireland is pretty high on the scale of goodness, but this will at least taste like Ireland and that’s one of the ways I satisfy my longing for travel. My husband rolls his eyes at the cost of a plane ticket and I serve the family food from all around the world until he starts crying and begs for a cheeseburger. It’s a good thing he’s cute, or I’d totally kick him to the curb.

Also, I take photos of him in his man cave wearing dorky 3D glasses and playing Call of Duty. Which, by the way, I can sometimes kick his butt in. Like, once. I think. Maybe that was a dream?

Anyway, let’s talk about oats! They’re good for baking. They’re good for eating. They’re good for making a homemade dry shampoo for your hair. They’re even good for your complexion.

Want some? How about a gift pack from the Irish Food Board? In your prize pack, you’ll receive 2 tins (28 ounces each) of McCann’s Steel Cut Oatmeal, 2 tins (28 ounces each) of Flahavan’s Irish Steel Cut Oatmeal, and 1 bag (35 ounces)of  Kilbeggan Irish Porridge. (Am I the only one who thought porridge was a make-believe food served only in The Three Little Bears?)

    @Dawn, I found the recipe at melskitchencafe.com. I added a bit more brown sugar and maple just because we like it a little sweeter. Obviously you can top it with whatever you want. My kids like craisins and mini chocolate chips.

    Porridge = oatmeal, which is what I just had for dinner, no I am not kidding. Ummm with agave syrup and dried cherries, oh so good! Found out the hard way that the brit’s don’t use the sweeters we do, so when you order your porridge grab a sugar (or two) to american-ize it!

    Well….I actually don’t know because even though I KNOW I should be eating oatmeal, I’ve been afraid to try! Quite an admission for someone who’s 67 years old!! So, I’m entering this giveaway to get myself started. Is that OK? :)

    I love oatmeal any way but my favorite is to cook it with almond milk and all a touch of pumpkin to it. Yummy!! Some dried cranberries right before it is done really adds a lot to it! Would love to try Irish oats, sounds very delicious!! Thank you!!!!

    Let me win this and I’ll dig out my “famous railroad dining car recipe cookbook” for how to really make oatmeal that melts in your mouth- the trick is to soak the oats in whole milk and cream overnight, then cook them in the morning. Paul in MI

    Well I do love oatmeal cookies and no bake cookies. If I’m eating legitimate oatmeal (not in a cookie) I like it with a lot of fruit, walnuts, and brown sugar.

    Unfortunately, in sweets…. But I do love just regular breakfast oatmeal too. I’ve been meaning to give baked oatmeal a try also. Thank you for the giveaway and the opportunity to participate.

    My favoirte way? I don’t cook it (it’s a texture thing). But I love oatmeal – a mix of regular + steel cut – covered in almond milk with blueberries, dried cranberries, cinnamon and vanilla, and refrigerated overnight. I have it for breakfast every morning during the week. Weekends are homemade granola made with oats and nuts and real maple syrup, mixed in my yogurt.

    I love to cook steel cut oats with cinnamon, a little apple butter, and dried cranberries. I let it sit in the fridge over night, then rewarm for lunch the next day. Yum, an easy and filling lunch on the go!
