This time of year especially, I am a regular consumer of a BIG bowl of oatmeal each morning. Here's how I do mine:
1 cup of oats
2 cups of water, maybe a little more
a fist full of "Craisins"
some brown sugar
As the water is heating up on the stove, I'll add the fist full of craisins so they can soften. (look at GTTalk until the water boils). When the water begins to boil, add the oats, turn off the heat, and set the covered pot on a hot pad, covered with a heavy dish cloth to retain the heat. Let it sit for 15 minutes or so (while I look at GGTalk, of course.) Then, add cinnamon ( I LOVE cinnamon.... helpful tip below) and a little brown sugar. Makes a pretty tasty bowl of oats! (Consumed while.... you guessed it.... reading GTTalk!!)
Tip: I found a good place on the internet to order spices from. It's called www.myspicesage.com
I got tired of paying HIGH prices at the grocery stores for relatively small amounts of spices, so I looked around the internet. I've been very pleased with myspicesage.com. EXCELLENT, FRESH spices, at WHOLESALE prices. Only needed customer service one time in the past, and they were GREAT to deal with.
