We're on an oatmeal kick again.
The boys are eating copious amounts of oatmeal each morning, but I can't complain. Whole oats, fruit and ground flax seed make a good, solid, budget-friendly breakfast.
Trouble was, mixing up the concoction for their breakfast each morning was time consuming and sometimes just down right annoying when R and G are hungry and wanted their food ready 10 minutes ago.
I used a soon-to-be-empty oatmeal bin and mixed up a huge vat of oatmeal mix (using the basic Election Morning Oatmeal recipe). I basically mix the oats, cinnamon, brown sugar and add ground flax seed, nutmeg, allspice and any dried fruit I have on hand. Voila! Oatmeal mix ready to be scooped out and microwaved before the boys can utter their first whine.
Since I prefer tea to whine in the morning...
