    Cranberry Almond Oatmeal
    1/2 cup rolled oats (not quick or instant)
    1 1/4 cup water
    1/4 cup dried cranberries
    14 whole almonds chopped (not salted)
    1/4 cup fat-free milk
    1 tsp. brown sugar (optional)
    Combine oatmeal and water in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil and lower heat to medium low. Cook for 4 minutes. Stir oatmeal frequently to prevent it from sticking to bottom of pan. Add 1/4 cup milk and continue cooking for two more minutes. Take pan off heat, add cranberries and almonds. Stir to mix well. Sprinkle brown sugar on top if desired. Makes 1 serving for a big appetite, 2 servings for smaller appetites.

    ...giggle...I love brown sugar, so I always add a little extra to my own. When DD was little, I always assigned her a 'breakfast' task so that I could mix in a little extra brown sugar on mine. Now that she' grown and moved away I don't have to cheat! LOL!

    This would work well with substitutions, too. No almonds? Substitute pecan, hazelnuts, or pecans. No died cranberries? Substitute raisins, dried apricots, cherries, peaches, or figs. And, make a bigger batch and put it in the refrigerator +without the nuts) in canning jars for breakfast later in the week. Remove canning jar lid and microwave for a minute or so, sprinkle with nuts and enjoy. Makes morning easier.
