Andrea Cooley October 23, 2009Friday recipe: oatmeal When it starts to get cold out I turn to classic comfort foods to keep me warm. My current favorite is a big bowl of oatmeal full of nuts and dried fruit. Usually I settle for heating up a pack of instant oatmeal, but if I have time it’s worth it to make it from scratch. Ingredients: 1/3 cup old-fashioned oatmeal2/3 cup water + 1/2 of a 1/3 cup waterapple, finely chopped or dried fruitnutscinnamon or brown sugar to tasteDirections: Add oatmeal, water, cinnamon and fruit to a glass bowl. Be sure to use a large enough bowl so that your cereal doesn’t run over in your microwaveStir mixtureCover bowl and microwave for 5 minutesIf you like this mixture, you can make little packets of oatmeal and apple and freeze.What’s your favorite comfort food?Photo by Marni Molina Leave a Reply Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
