Kathleen's the Morning Doves Baked Oatmeal

Kathleen is a Morning Dove who is descended from the mysterious Spirit of the Cloud tribe that inhabits a remote part of the southwest. There are six daughters who travel the continent and look for signs, marks, they experience that which mankind no longer appreciates or had taken for granted. They place omens creating hallowed ground for future generations who will gain sight on what really matters the most, a clean food chain, fresh air to breathe and water to drink. She stopped by the bed and breakfast on her journey north. Quietly sipping some fresh sassafras tea, she wove tails that have been in her lineage for generations and then shared with us a delicious recipe her mother had created. It's so mysteriously pleasant.
