Delicious, Delicious... Oatmeal Souffle

This morning, I had a breakfast meeting that led to an amazing discovery... oatmeal souffle!

It's such a brilliant idea, and beyond delicious! Oh... and the meeting went well, too.

How delish does that look?!?! Can't believe you know this Frolic character---he sounds like a real hoot. Your comment made my morning. Glad to hear you're enjoying your darling Frenchie. Aren't puppies just the best?

Oh Frolic is a legend - like something out of a Fitzgerald story. He is definitely post-worthy!
