Cure for a Dreary Morning

Rainy November morning

We woke up to another cold and rainy day.

So I decided to use the time while the little ones are waking up and playing, and I'm checking my email and making my coffee, to put some steel-cut oatmeal on the stove. I have had trouble selling the texture of steel-cut oats to the kids before, so I decided to set up a little fixin's bar to generate some interest.

Oatmeal fixin's

It worked like a charm. They both gobbled their oatmeal, and the five-year-old even had seconds. The joy of DIY strikes again!

Yum, yum, extra yum.

  1. I cannot stand any type of porridge-but my two love it. They've discovered a new cobination they love--their homemade applesauce and a pinch of cinnamon. (our applesauce is just apples-no sugar was added)
