~Craisin Creamy Oatmeal~

Last night as I was scrolling down my Twitter feed suddenly "I spied" our local weatherman's warning of the possibility of a  frost!  Our colorful hanging geranium that's been enjoying a sunny spot in front was quickly placed in our garage.  At that moment I also knew that we'd be enjoying Craisin Creamy Oatmeal for breakfast this AM!

Earlier today there was a chill in the air, but breakfast was hot & yummy.  The geranium is back outside.  Now, I'm back to blogging after the past few months of working on my town's celebration of Long Meddowe Days.  Lots to get caught up on!  Our freezer no longer has my supply of prepared foods.

This was a great start to the day!  A bowl of hot cereal tastes so good on a crisp AM any season of the year!

I eat oatmeal every morning and I love adding a little mixture of craisins, raisins and almond pieces to the oats while they are cooking. Another variation is adding some raw apple pieces to the oats while they cook. Sounds good right now! Hugs!
