So, I saw this great idea over at everyday food storage's blog. She made sneaky oatmeal. Seriously this woman is amazing with all of her recipes, my goal is to become such a great food storage cook.
So, I made up a batch and put the instructions on a little sticky on the top of the #10 can. I was busy trying to feed the kids and do dishes and hadn't tried any for myself, when my husband came in. After trying it, he informed me that it wasn't as flavorful as he was used to, but my kids had seconds and thirds. I thought it wasn't bad, but I want to research some more pre-made oatmeal packets to try tomorrow morning.
The one interesting thing she did is mix up the powdered milk into the oatmeal recipe, but my kids wouldn't eat the oatmeal without another form of real milk in front of them. So it used up milk, but I still had to use real milk too. Here's her recipe in case you didn't click over already:
Sneaky Oatmeal Mix
4 c. oatmeal
2 T. powdered milk
2 T. sugar
Mix ingredients in an empty #10 can and set aside.
To use the mix simply mix 1/2 c. oatmeal mix & 1 c. water and microwave for two minutes.
