Today I made Christmas Oatmeal! It was pretty good too for oatmeal. It also has the ability too be quick and easy as well which really helps this time of year. The great side effect is that it is a great air freshener as well. Here is my list of .... (a little of this and a little of that)
fill a large pot half way with water and set it to boil
add a nice pour of sea salt
add several shakes of cinnamon
a good shake of cloves
a good shake of all spice
several shakes of ginger
When it boils add 7 cups of oatmeal and turn down your water to about 6 and cook for 1 or 5 minutes depending on your type of oatmeal. Then take off the burner. I set out some honey on the table and spooned up some oatmeal onto their paper plates. (yes I use paper plates for anything that will work when available) After this I allow the children to add their own honey, pray and eat.
I guess if you had some apple cider or juice it could be apple cider oatmeal or even add chunks of apple.
