Oatmeal Souffle'

I can’t inform Daniel, 7, the night before I’m planning on making Oatmeal Souffle’ for breakfast. He becomes overly enthused, tapping me on the shoulder, arousing me from my 5am slumber demanding to know, “When, oh, when are you going to get up and make your fabulous Oatmeal Souffle’, Mommy? I can’t wait any longer!” Sarah, 12, has decided it’s time for her to memorize all the recipes of her favorite foods, and this recipe is at the top of her list. For both of them, this recipe is going to be one of those “memory foods” – soul foods – which I hope they’ll continue to make for their children.
