Creamy Oatmeal

Robin started eating this oatmeal for breakfast when she was pregnant with our first child. This recipe is adapted from “What to Eat When You’re Expecting” by Arlene Eisenberg, Sandee E. Hathaway, Heidi E. Murkoff. It contains dry milk powder which adds calcium and makes it so delicious and creamy. Today she adds strawberries, but the oatmeal is wonderful with any berry, or some chopped apples, pears, or peaches.

In a small pot we combine the oats and water. We bring to a boil over medium heat, and then lower the heat. We gently simmer the oatmeal for a few minutes until thickened. We take the pan off the heat, stir in the dry milk powder and pour it into a bowl. We top with fruit, cinnamon, granola, and skim milk to taste.
