Work is still crazy busy this time of year, but I wanted to share a great autumn recipe!
Apricot Oatmeal: Serves 3-4 depending on how much your hubby eats!
2 cups Old Fashioned Oats
1.5 cup Milk
1 3/4 cup water
1 cup chopped apricots (I used a 6oz can drained–no fresh available this time of year)
pinch of salt (optional)
Add Milk and Water to pan with pinch of salt
bring to a boil
Add Oats and chopped apricots
Reduce heat to low and simmer 5 minutes until liquid is absorbed to desired consistency
We add lots of smart balance to Morgan’s bowl and plenty of toasted pecans to ours!
Apricots are a wonderful source of Vitamin A–for growth and development. **If you plan to use dried apricots, choose an unsulfured variety and add with the water and milk so that they will be soft when you serve them.
