Oatmeal.........With Love!

Eating breakfast is just not a natural thing for me. I am not, and have never been, a morning person. Therefore, I rarely make the time to make breakfast in the morning.

Lately, I decided it was time to get healthier and lose a few pounds. It's a fact, and it makes sense that eating a healthy breakfast is a smart and healthy way to start each day. Now, I force myself to eat a banana, a bowl of cereal.....whatever.

It's a really good thing that I have the most thoughtful and amazing husband in the world! Before heading off to work in the morning, he made time to make me oatmeal. He knows that I would much rather sleep in 30 minutes rather than wake up early and prepare something.

Not only did he set up a bowl with oatmeal, but he fixed it up for me complete with walnuts, raisins, brown sugar and cinnamon, (that's the love part!) all I had to do was add the hot water.


1 cup of dry Quaker oats
2 cups water (only use part of it)
Brown sugar
Ground Cinnamon

Combine oats with enough hot water to just cover the oats. Add a little more water, or milk if you like it creamier. Add raisins and walnuts, let simmer for 2-3 minutes. Stir in brown sugar and cinnamon and let sit for another 3 minutes or until oats are soft and creamy.

Enjoy and have a great day!


  1. Oatmeal with love.. and I love oatmeal.. :)

  2. I'd definitely love to wake up to that oatmeal! Sounds great and so sweet of your husband to do that for you! =)

  3. I also have a husband who will cook me breakfast every day. Problem is, he wants to make pancakes! So much for the healthy eating!

  4. What a lovely oatmeal! ♥- Katrina

  5. Tiffany, I have my oatmeal nearly the exact same way! Funny, I never had oatmeal until I got married and my husband loved it, so I tried it. Now I eat it nearly every day. I don't like sugar on mine, but the kids and my husband don't have any trouble using up my share!
    I'm with you about the morning, I have to force myself to sit down and eat , so I count myself lucky that I don't have to work so I can have a leisurly breakfast around 10. I feel for my son though who is the same as me, but has to go to school. He is literally forcing the food down.

  6. Aw!! That sounds wonderful! I love oatmeal :)

    Great blog; happy I found you!
