|This morning it was very snowy and blowy.....I decided we could all do without the picture! :)|
Instead, it's time for some yummy hot cereal. Now, I know you could just open a package....but why not save yourself some money and some preservatives and make it yourself? Once you do the initial grinding it's just as fast.You can add almost any fruit you have on hand and make a tasty, healthy breakfast(or maybe even lunch?) Add some apples and cinnamon, or whatever your creative brain thinks of! My grandpa lived until he was 96 and he ate oatmeal everyday.
|Homemade Quick Oatmeal|
Take some quick oats and grind them up in your blender or Magic Bullet,mine died shortly after this picture was taken :( . Grind them up fine. Place them in a small container or plastic zipper bag. Write the recipe on the outside so you don't have to search for it!
1/4 cup quick oats(not ground)
2 Tbsp ground up oats
3/4 cup boiling water
Mix up the oats and your raisins or berries(my strawberries were frozen so I microwaved them for 35 secs first). Add your boiling water and let sit for 2 minutes. Enjoy!!!!
|Price comparison? I recently bought Quick Cooking Oats for $1.10/kg. Right now in the flyers the ready made packages are $8.98 for 2Kg. That means the oats themselves would cost $2.20/kg compared to $8.98 for premade!|
