{quickie} oatmeal + apple butter

20 Oct

I don’t know how other people do oatmeal.  I usually just throw some stuff in a sauce pot, heat, and eat.  It’s definitely pretty willy nilly up in here, but I try to remember when something works.  Today, everything worked.

  • 60/40 water/milk
  • pat of butter (do i need to clarify that i meant earth balance?  i call all margarine butter.   it’s just what i grew up doing)
  • rolled oats (using less than I think I should gives the best results)
  • and after heating, a spoonful of apple butter (maybe use a smaller spoon next time)

It was delicious.  Or, as my three year old in one of his better moments would say, PAH-LICIOUS.

P.S.  Can I just say how thrilled I was when I realized oatmeal was a great vehicle for jellies, jams, and fruit butters?  It’s not that I hate toast, but… my toaster is evil.
