WBB#13 Oats- Roundup

July 31, 2007 at 2:17 pm 25 comments

Oats – the wonder grain. Nutritionists keep adding to its good reputation.

I admit, I was a bit anxious and nervous when I announced WBB#13 OatsI was nervous about the response I would get since this was my first event as a host and also because I wasn’t sure of the popularity of Oats.

The response I have received is very encouraging (for me as well as for Oats J)and we now have some very innovative and wonderful recipes to give a healthy start to our day!

Thank you Nandita for giving me this wonderful opportunity to host WBB


And Thank you all– participants, foodies and readers. I greatly appreciate your innovative ideas, efforts and enthusiasm. Thank you for participating.
