outrageous oatmeal

for oatmeal eaters, here is a must-try recipe...

Steel Cut Oatmeal
(Serves 4/2 Adults and 3 little people)

1 cup steel cut oats (regular oats work fine but cooking time may be shorter)
1/4 cup brown sugar (we decided to leave out the sugar and just sprinkle a bit on top)
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ginger
1 cup skim milk

Bring 3 cups water to a boil in large saucepan. Add oats, brown sugar, vanilla and spices.
Stir well, reduce heat to simmer and cook, 15 minutes.
Add milk, stir again, and cook 15 minutes or until liquid has been absorbed and mixture is creamy.

We topped with nuts for a little crunch and omega-3 (and wished for fresh summer berries)
