It snowed here last night and most of today. So guess what I had for lunch? Yep. Oatmeal. I simply can’t get enough of the stuff (as evidenced here and here), especially on a day like today. The mix-in possibilities are endless! I think a whole cookbook could be devoted to oatmeal.
So here’s my latest concoction.
1/2 c. quick-cooking oats
1 T. brown sugar
1/4 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
dash of salt
1/3 c. milk
1 heaping tablespoon of canned pumpkin
Stir all together in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes, depending on how powerful your microwave oven is. Stir and let thicken a little as it cools. I topped mine with some walnuts, but pecans would’ve been better. A little maple syrup swirled in might be good, too. Delish!
