Winter Weather Warm Up Food

When we got home this morning after our 4 am early morning attempt to get to Cleveland, it was cold and super snowy. My least favorite kind of winter weather. Once we were safely back indoors and properly caffinated, all I could think of was having a super yummy breakfast, the kind that warms you back up from the inside. My extra amazing hubby made me eggs, but here's a quick recipe for the hot breakfast I would have made myself if he wasn't so thoughtful.

Super Cheap, Almost Instant Oatmeal

1/2 c quick oats
1 c water or milk
Pinch of salt
1/2 t cinnamon
Diced apples or raisins
2 T brown sugar or honey

Put everything in a pretty big microwave safe bowl (unless you are using raisins or honey because those go in @ the end).  Microwave on high 1 minute and stir.  Microwave 1 more minute and stir. Set the microwave for 1 more minute but watch carefully and stop the microwave when it looks like it is going to overflow or explode. Let it cool and add your raisins or honey if you opted for those. Super tasty and super inexpensive, this is sure to warm you up after digging out from the blizzard.
Enjoy and stay warm and safe!
