Re: Do you like oatmeal? Tried this for DD this morning..
this sounds like a great idea. i am not a great crockpot cook (go figure), so having a recipe like this may help me out!
as for what to do with all those rolled oats you all have on hand now here is what i do:
1/2 cup rolled oats (NOT steal cut or instant)
raisins (i like the golden ones, but whatever you like)
dried cherries (or whatever dried fruit you have on hand)
1 cup water, micro for 2 mins.
to get the convenience of instant packs, i have a bunch of ziploc bags with all the ingredients in each and just keep them in the cupboard. then in the morning i just dump one in a bowl and put it in the microwave. i know, not the best cooking method, but if you have the ambition to cook in the morning, kudos to you!
