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.
1/3 cup old-fashioned oatmeal
2/3 cup water + 1/2 of a 1/3 cup water
apple, finely chopped or dried fruit
cinnamon or brown sugar to taste
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 microwave
Cover bowl and microwave for 5 minutes
If you like this mixture, you can make little packets of oatmeal and apple and freeze.
