We’ve had Drew’s parents over for Mardi Gras, so I decided to try out a new recipe that I’d had saved for a while. It was for overnight oatmeal. You use steel cut oats and put them in a crock pot to cook overnight and you wake up in the morning with fresh hot breakfast! Pretty great, huh? I thought so. Easy too. We just have a baby crock pot and there are only four of us so I just took 4 cups of water and 1 cup of steel cut oats and a pinch of salt and leave it on low in the crock pot overnight. That’s it. (the recipe called for 8 cups of water and 2 cups of oats, but I wouldn’t do that unless you are planning on feeding an army) Don’t use regular oats or you will end up with mush. Times 10. They turned out great. I cut fruit to go on top and a few walnuts and a little brown sugar!  I definitely recommend this for an easy company breakfast. 🙂
