The US is currently in quite the cold snap!!! Because of this I decided last night to try some crockpot oatmeal. This would be a nice warm up to take with me on the way to work. I used the recipe found here: http://www.chow.com/recipes/30656-slow-cooker-steel-cut-oatmeal with a couple tweaks. I decreased the milk, nixed the vanilla extract, and added a sprinkle of dark chocolate chips. Very creamy and warmed me up! How do you keep Jack Frost away??

Here is a quick trick for a photo booth/light box. I took a piece of printer paper, bent it in half and taped it in a sunny window.
Ignore the kitty nose prints. And below is a shot.
What do you use?
