Oh, there's a bit of a chill in the air these mornings! Definitely time for a bowl of creamy, nutritious, hearty Oatmeal. No, not the instant oatmeal packets that can be purchased and boiling hot water is added. This is the oatmeal that tastes delicious after all of the ingredients are placed in a sauce pot, combined and sit for like 5 - 10 minutes, so the oats may soften a bit, before being heated and stirred. Mmmm!
The Quaker Oats canister has the directions printed on the backside, if needed. I also stir in 1/8 teaspoon Nutmeg & 1/8 teaspoon Cinnamon with the oats and milk. A handful of Craisins (dried Cranberries) add a bit of tang and sweetness to this delicious hot cereal. Brown Sugar (desired amount) is also added.
Calcium is an important part of a diet that's needed every day, and a serving of this hot cereal contains 8 oz. - including the Milk added in the cereal bowl. This is a great start to the needed daily amount of Calcium, every day.
I use Soy Milk and I find that a half gallon of Soy Milk is always on my grocery list. The Old Fashioned Oats and Craisins will be on my next Costco list! They will be divided into more usable containers, after purchasing. :) There will be more cooking with Oats & Craisins this week!
