    My Oatmeal Loves Me! - and cold weather foods

    I often default to oatmeal as my warm food for cold days. I make my own in the microwave, cheaper and more customizable than the instant stuff, and doesn't take much time. I usually put dates or raisins, brown sugar, salt and several shakes of cinnamon, and microwave it, and the cinnamon ends up on top to be stirred in. But today I opened the door to find this:



    What food do you like on cold, grey days?

    Wow! A heart--how pretty. Yes, on cold days I often have oatmeal. I also buy a big container of oatmeal rather than little packs. I like to mix oatmeal + milk + fruit such as cherries + Splenda and cook it together in the microwave--so good. Makes me want some right now but I'll wait until morning.

    Karen, so glad you took a photo of that heart!

    I have oatmeal for breakfast most days. I use the 1 minute quick oats. While that 1 minute is happening, I chop up a banana into my bowl, along with some frozen blueberries, and frozen cherries. Then the oatmeal goes on top. A bit of milk to help cool it down (if needed, the frozen berries often do the trick) and sometimes a little maple syrup. YUM!
    Thank you Karen, for fixing my siggy!

    Oh - how neat, Karen. I love oatmeal, but unfortunately it doesn't like me and my modified digestive system. I have to get my oatmeal fix in the form of cookies, but that's not too difficult to deal with.

    Yum, chili would be great! Now, does your have beans, or no beans? I know it is a one of contention in some places!

    Chili with beans! That's what we had for the Super Bowl.
