My Perfect Oatmeal

Breakfast just isn’t one of my favorite meals of the day.  Cold cereal and milk just doesn’t cut it for me.  Gone are the college years when I could grab a peanut butter and jelly sandwich for breakfast.  That is way too many calories for me now.  I have to grab a bite of something before I run off to work though.  In my mad dash, I am prone to go to Starbucks.  I love their “Perfect Oatmeal” along with a cafe mocha but if I did that every morning it would run the grocery bill up sky high.

So I found a close alternative and it only takes me 5 minutes to make it.  I like to use the Old Fashioned Oats.  They are much healthier than the instant variety.  I put 3/4 cup of water and 1/2 cup of Old Fashioned Oats into a microwaveable bowl.  I zap it for about 2 minutes 20 seconds or until it is almost going to boil over.  Then I put a little butter in the middle of the oatmeal.

Then I sprinkle some of this wonderful stuff on top of the oatmeal.  Any dried berry would work, even raisins.  Then I add some chopped pecans.  You can add any chopped nuts you have around but I am partial to pecans, they are my favorite.  Then I sprinkle on some brown sugar.

If I have to eat breakfast, this is what I would rather have.  It is quick and oh so good!!!
