Baked Oatmeal Casserole

Sorry I have been a little MIA lately... we are staining our kitchen cabinets ourselves and it is a LOT of work! You have to sand everything with two types of sand paper, put a wood conditioner on the cabinets, then stain them (twice for us!), and then put a sealer. Oh and it's very hard to do the bottom half when you find little hand prints in your fresh stain... so we've been doing the bottom at night so it can dry by morning! All we have left to do is the island... and I will show you how we did it, of course!

My sister, Rachael, baked this awesome looking Baked Oatmeal Casserole. She sent me the link from Pinterest and her pictures of the casserole. So, today she is my guest blogger! She said this casserole will not only make your house smell delicious, but it will feed you for a week! I hope you enjoy this recipe - my husband is dying for me to make it. Maybe I'll feel like baking once the cabinets are finished...
