This recipe is simple and you
make it the night before,
so that you can wake up to
a warm bowl of oatmeal in the morning.
Cut up two or three of your favorite apples.
I like Granny Smith.
Toss them in your slow cooker.
Look down and notice that your dog is
hoping that you drop an apple piece.
Add 1/3 of a cup of brown sugar and
…one teaspoon of cinnamon.
He’s getting closer.
Add 2 cups of oatmeal
and 4 cups of water.
No need to stir.
My slow cooker is programable.
I set it for four hours and then it switches to warm
for the rest of the night.
I don’t have an after picture,
but, trust me, it’s good.
On Saturday morning,
we set up an “oatmeal bar”
with a bunch of add-ins: nuts,
dried cranberries, chocolate chips, etc.
We ate oatmeal, watched a Christmas movie
and enjoyed one another’s company.
I love this season.
