This post is off the stamping topic but, I like to share food tips when I can. 🙂
When the weather starts turning colder I start to crave Oatmeal and NOT that stuff out of the pre-made packets at the grocery. I make my own quick to whip up packets with all the goodness of simple ingredients. Let me tell you, you can make up homemade oatmeal packets for about $3 for 20. That’s probably less than you would pay for a little box of the pre-made ones at the store. Better yet, you get to put into the bag what you like.
This is our favorite oatmeal packet:
1/4 cup quick-cooking oats
2 teaspoons brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1-2 tablespoons rasins
Line your sealable sandwich bags up and put your ingredients in each one. I do this the assembly line way by putting the oatmeal in each bag then move on to the next ingredient. I continue until I have everything in the baggies. Roll them up and seal shut.
I store mine in a large canning jar with a tag on it. The back side of the tag says 1/2 cup water, microwave 1-2 minutes.
Quick simple yummy goodness, mmmmm. We like to chop up 1/2 of an apple and put in it before microwaving, wonderful hardy breakfast.
Now on to my favorite thing to do, stamping! I’ll be back in a bit with today’s project.
