Gingerbread Man Bathtime

in All Posts

How does a Gingerbread Man take a bath?


In a bowl of oatmeal, of course!


Heheh! I’ve been waiting to do this bowl of oatmeal for days!  Isn’t he cute in his bubble bath of oats?


My Gingerbread Man Oatmeal contained:


  • 1/2 cup oatmeal
    1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 sliced banana
  • Toppings: Hazelnuts and a Gingerbread Man’s arms, legs, and head.


I ended up not eating the Gingerbread Man (except the body, which I ate during prep) because (1) his little arms and legs and face were too cute for consumption and (2) a cookie at 8:00 AM is a little too much!


Off for a Christmas Eve run, and then I have to hit the mall because YES, I am THAT person who waits until the 24th to buy presents. 🙂


Have a wonderful day!

    You’re so creative.

    I do wish I could live by the philosophy that a cookie at 8 a.m. is a little too much, though!

    Good luck with your Christmas Eve shopping!

    What did you do with the gingerbread man’s limbs? Are there arms, legs, and a head lying out on the counter somewhere? He must be taken to the gingerbread man trauma center ASAP!

  • Lida December 24, 2008, 8:59 am

    I debated putting ginger cookies in oatmeal, but decided they would get soggy. your oatmeal is ADORABLE, though.
    so instead, I crumbled some oatmeal raisin cookie, which was just as delicious.

    hey Cait! I was just catching up from last night too. My dad and I made sweet potato latkes two nights ago, from a recipe he clipped. ours involved minced bell peppers and curry powder, and it was delish! consider adding those when you tweak! happy holidays, everyone!
