Now that Christmas is close by,  gingerbread is acceptable everywhere.  Yes, gingerbread cookies are good, but its not socially acceptable to eat them for breakfast.  Im mean, I wouldn’t judge ya if you did, but I would warn you that there are haters out there.

But oatmeal is socially acceptable for breakfast, so gingerbread cookie flavoring in oatmeal is socially acceptable for breakfast.  Catch my drift?  Even if you’re not on the same page a I am, at least you know that this breakfast recipe is gonna taste great.
