Apple Pie Oatmeal

Hello my few and faithful readers,

For the past few weeks, I've been having oatmeal for breakfast. I usually throw a little fruit in it, or maybe some nuts, but today with a little extra time on my hands I decided to spruce it up a bit.

So, I headed into the kitchen this morning, and surveyed my counter. A few apples left from the 24 that you get from Costco in one shopping experience. So, I decided my oatmeal was going to have apples in it. Then, I thought, it should probably also have some cinnamon and sugar in it. So, with no further ado, here is my recipe for Apple Pie Oatmeal:

Apple Pie Oatmeal

1 1/2 cups of Water
3/4 cups oats
1 apple, finely chopped
A sprinkle of cinnamon
A sprinkle of sugar

Directions: Bring water to a boil, add in your oats, stir until cooked completely. Meanwhile, chop the apple into fine pieces, and sprinkle a little cinnamon and sugar on your apples in separate bowl. Mix all the cinnamon and sugar together on the apples. When oatmeal is done, mix the apple mixture into a bowl. Enjoy!

Do any of you have any fun ways to spruce up your oatmeal?

Welcome to my blog! I am about to head off to work, so I am going to make this short and sweet.

I've started this blog so I can keep some sort of journal for when I want to go back and look at what was going on. I also did it so friends and family that are far away can see what I'm up to over here in Omaha!

So, if you happened to stumble upon my page, or you got the invite, or you are family so you are forced to view and comment on my blog, I say to you Welcome!
