Raspberry Vanilla Oatmeal
When I called this oatmeal, Porridge today, the kids got a kick out of it. In TJ's best English accent he said, "Please sir, I want some more porridge." (Oliver Twist).
But in fact porridge is exactly what it is! According to Wikipedia, porridge is oats cooked in water or other liquid. Just curious if anyone still calls it that? Anyone? Anyone?
So, we turned ours pink for a holiday Valentines post. The great thing about the color pink, is no artificial colors necessary! In fact, the entire pot was turned pink by raspberries alone.
- 2 cups quick oats
- 3 cups water
- 1 cup raspberries
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 TBL flax meal
- Put all ingredients in a saucepan. Stir until begins to boil Keep stirring for 2-3 minutes, and remove from heat.
What a perfect start to a great holiday! Hopefully the fiber in this meal will offset the sugar rush they'll certainly encounter later in the day!
