For my first guest poster, I am so excited to introduce you to Char of Char's Kitchen! I'm sure many of you know her; she's certainly been on my blogroll for a while :). Char lives just a ferry ride away from me on Vancouver Island (big up BCers!) and is a fellow animal-friendly cat-lover like myself. Her spirit is adorable and I love reading her blog for delicious recipes that seriously impress. I actually made this oatmeal the morning after I received this post from Char and I can vouch for it - it is AWESOME. As you know I. Love. Oatmeal...and often post varieties of oatmeal flavours (I have a vacation-inspired tropical oatmeal recipe coming up for you on Friday!). This is being added to my breakfast rotation for sure (you don't even have to know or have had a Nanaimo bar to enjoy this, I promise, but if you haven't heard of a Nanaimo bar - seriously, Google it). Enjoy and thank you Char! Anna xxx

If you want to continue enjoying the pancake load I thrust on you earlier this week, do so. I have it in good faith (aka Mama Pea), that this week is Pancake Week. So forget about Tuesday being Pancake Day. Let's just do it the whole darn week, shall we? However, if you're in the mood for your usual delicious breakfast oats...well, look no further. I just dialled up the deliciousness factor on these by about 100 or so... Can you imagine anything better than a breakfast that is sinfully chocolatey but completely good for you? Me neither.

Well, we all call it oatmeal on this side of the world but I like alliteration! This oatmeal really is packed though...packed with vitamins. You get vitamin A from the pumpkin, vitamin B from the oats and wheat germ and vitamin D from the milk. And I get lots of *vitamin happy* from the chocolate chips :).
