In order to keep me on track with new recipes, eating from my pantry and trying new things I will post "the" new food! It may be breakfast, lunch, dinner a snack or even a drink! Anything goes and the result will make me better in the kitchen!
Today's meal as early as it is was oatmeal. We eat a lot of oatmeal here!! We buy it in bulk from Sam's Club and eat it quite often.
I think it last longer than cereal helps you stay full longer. You can make it into anything. The concoctions to oatmeal are numerous! I also think it is a great frugal tool. Some recipes are flexible with use of water or milk. You use less milk in a recipe for multiple servings than a bowl of cereal as it is measured out instead of causally poured into a bowl.
You can make it as healthy as you want or as sweet and fun as you desire. Either way it is still good for you as you are in charge of the ingredients you add. No artificial preservatives, flavors or colors!

Although not all our oatmeal is enjoyed here a majority is! I appreciate the household tasting them and we save the recipes for easy repeats in the future. My daughter's have a notebook for keeping their recipes in both for now and when they are on their own.
So many recipes so little time!
