oatmeal

November 11, 2009

Sorry I’ve been MIA.  I knew it would happen.

I’m about to go to work and I made some oatmeal for a quick lunch.  I wanted to share my “recipe” for any of you oatmeal lovers out there.  (mainly for tara though =)

boil 1 cup of water

add 1/2 cup old fashion oatmeal

let it get thick while stirring occasionally – about 10 minutes

add a nice scoopful of butter to a bowl/mug, two scoops of brown sugar (i love sugar), craisins or whatever dried fruit you like, and chopped pecans or whatever nut you have on hand.

I realize I use way too much butter and brown sugar, but I like to think the craisins and pecans offset the unhealthy calories.  And I’m pretty much a dietitian so I can say that and it be true.
