I have gotten to know Katy a little bit this year, and I think I've been blessed for it. She is a wonderful writer and has many books available on Amazon. Return to Finian Jahndra is one of her earlier works and is the sequal to Leandra's Enchanted Flute. I hope you take the time to check out all of her wonderful books. They are available on Amazon in print and ebook. Many of them are also free if you are a Kindle Unlimited customer.
About Return to Finian Jahndra:
"Four years after saving the magical land of Finian Jahndra, Leandra's cancer has returned and the prognosis is grim. At Songcatcher's request, Leandra returns to help her bird friends and Prince Aspen repel an invading army. But something is terribly wrong--her flute has no magic and her health is not restored. Despite heartbreaking losses, a series of perplexing mysteries, and the exhaustion of her advancing illness, Leandra must find a way to rally the birds and humans of Finian Jahndra to meet a much greater and deadly force before the magic dies forever."
One thing I love about oatmeal is that it is so easily dressed up. I use rolled oats, and then imagine flavor combinations. Today's featured muesli, canned peaches and walnuts. I am sure you could make this with Splenda, and light peaches to make it lower calorie -- but since I've been diagnosed with my food allergies I don't do fake foods anymore.
I hope this recipe helps you when you need to fix something quick and get back to your work. I promise if your family likes oatmeal, this will make you a real hero, and if you can't get your kids to eat oatmeal, you might give this a try. I've never had a kid turn it down!

Believe it or not, she made it all in the oven!
Oven Baked Fried Bacon and Eggs
Place several pieces of bacon onto a jelly roll pan. Bake for 10-20 minutes on 350 degrees until it reaches your preferred doneness. I have a small oven so it doesn't take long for my bacon to get done. Make sure to watch the bacon closely until you get used to how long it takes to cook in your oven.
While the bacon grease is still hot, crack your eggs into the bacon grease. They will actually start cooking before your eyes. Place the eggs back into the oven. Cook your eggs until they are just like you like them! About 10-20 minutes.
No joke, she made about 20 fried eggs, and they were all done at the same time!!! And, they tasted great. I think even I can add this easy breakfast into my daily routine.
