Old fashioned goodness
The beeblettes (my children) have been spoiled. I confess, I made them that way. They have been turned into tween and barely teen foodies. They love food. For example, This morning it was a bit nippy and the youngest beeblette requested hot oatmeal with some of the applesauce that we made last night. She said she had been dreaming about it. Not wanting to disappoint her, I dutifully made her a hearty start to her day. As winter approaches, it is time to start thinking of warm and filling breakfast foods. Nothing says comfort like a bowl of creamy oatmeal.
We just put old fashioned oats, fruit (usually mashed bananas, chopped apples or raisins) and cinnamon in a bowl, cover with water and pop it in the microwave for 2-3 minutes. Be careful, you may want to stir it after a minute or so to avoid the molten lava effect. Today's offering was served with milk and sprinkled with a tiny bit of granola ( we were all out of raisins). Yum!
