A Really Quick and Easy Breakfast

Good morning readers!  It's a cold, snowy day here in New England and I had some recipes I wanted to try.  One of them is this recipe for Crockpot Oatmeal with Apples.

I found this on Pinterest, which is always "iffy" in my eyes.  Since it's a simple recipe with ingredients that are relatively inexpensive, I figured it wouldn't be a total loss if it failed.  Well, it WORKED!  My husband said it was the best oatmeal he ever ate and that it tasted like apple pie!  I have to agree.

It literally takes no more than five minutes to throw together.  Do it at night and you have a warm, stick-to-your-ribs breakfast in the morning.  It keeps for a week in the fridge.  Please give it a try!
