Monday Morning Oatmeal Recipe

I am a person of habit.  I pop my gum,  I never leave the house without my water bottle,  I like to buy the same top in every color it comes in. (That's normal, ..right?)   And I tend to eat the same thing for breakfast most days; oatmeal.  Not trendy steel cut or instant, just good ole reliable Quaker Oats.  I love the warmth of a bowl filled with oatmeal, topped every time with pecans, strawberries, blueberries and bananas.  It's basic and wholesome, fills my tummy and does my heart good.  This recipe will make one bowl,  if your sharing with your sweetheart, just double the recipe.

Monday Morning Oatmeal 
1 cup skim milk
1/2 cup Quaker Quick 1 Minute Oats
1 Tbsp brown sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 salt
Pecans to taste
Mixed berries
1/2 banana

Bring to a slight boil in a small sauce pan milk, brown sugar, vanilla and cinnamon.  Stir in oats and cook for about a minute stirring constantly.  Transfer to a serving bowl and top with fruit.

Good every time and it doesn't even have to be Monday!
