My latest concoction is this yummy oatmeal. I take old-fashioned oatmeal (not the quick cook kind) and cook as directed. Then I add a couple of spoonfuls of light brown sugar.
Next I mash a banana. I thought when my last son sprouted a few teeth I would never be mashing bananas again. I was wrong. They make a great addition to my oatmeal.
I mix in the mushy banana and then top it all with something a bit surprising even to me. Dried plums.
We all know that they are really prunes but the SunSweet people think dried plums sound more appetizing. This is apparently a food that somehow makes it into your grocery cart after a certain age. They actually are good and don't make me gag like something called a prune might. And look how good this looks.
And no partially hydrogenated anything, no high fructose corn syrup. I have a thing about those items showing up in almost every grocery item and like to control it when I can.
