Happy National Peaches & Cream Day! We are celebrating today with a PEACHES AND CREAM food fight. All the recipes will contain peaches and cream. I can't wait to see what other goodies are linked up and y'all can find that at the end of this post.

I chose this breakfast recipe because I've been wanting to make oatmeal lately and kept forgetting to and eating a bagel or English muffin before realizing I wanted oatmeal. I was a bit miffed that the recipe takes 3 to 5 hours because I am not morning person and I sure as heck ain't waking up at 3 am to fix breakfast. However, I did make it and ate it for snack and it was wonderful. Just as wonderful as I knew it would be.

It also is just fine reheated in the microwave, which I ended up doing for the two mornings that followed. This was my first experience with steel cut oats and I was really intrigued by how much they reminded me of tapioca. In fact, this recipe reminded me of a flavored tapioca and I think that made me love it even more. I served my oatmeal up with half-and-half.
