Vanilla blueberry oatmeal

I made this for my kids for breakfast this morning, & I thought as long as I had the recipe out I would share it with you. It's quick & easy, & my kids love it. It's from Simple & Delicious, one of my very favorite magazines (it used to be called Quick & Easy). I love simple, & many of their recipes are so easy, my kids could make them. These days it's hard to find stuff to make for dinner, because my husband isn't eating. I hate slaving away in the kitchen making a complicated meal for just the boys & myself. This magazine has GREAT recipes & ideas!! Click on the link ~ I think they're even offering a free issue this month!

Vanilla Blueberry Oatmeal

3 cups water
2 cups quick-cooking oats
2/3 cup sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
2 tablespoons plus 1-1/2 teaspoons refrigerated French vanilla coffee creamer

In a large saucepan, bring water to a boil. Stir in the oats, sugar & salt. Remove from the heat; stir in the blueberries & creamer. Yield: 4 servings.

Easy peasy!! I'm sure you could substitute any fruit, but my kids LOVE blueberries so I've never tried anything else. I have frozen strawberries in my freezer, maybe I'll try that tomorrow!!

I hope to have a card soon. The last few days I've had to tend to a sick kitty. He was really cranky & not wanting to be touched, so I took him to the vet on Tuesday & he had a nasty abscess on his chin. I don't know how I missed that. They lanced it (yuck), put him on AB's & he's doing much better. But I've been busy trying to clean up the wound ( I have to put peroxide on it), making sure he eats, giving him his pills (fun) & doing his regular testing & insulin shots. Yep, he's diabetic ~~ 5 1/2 years now, & he's doing really well. If any of you have a diabetic cat, email me ~~ I can give you THE best website out there where I learned EVERYTHING!!!

Ok, a recipe & a diabetic cat. This was a fun post!
