I had to get out of bed. My sleep schedule goes into a weird cycle when I am here because Stephen works 2nd shift. He works from 3 to midnight and doesn't go to sleep until around 2:30 am, waking up at 10:30 am. So when I am here, I wake up around 8, take a nap around 3:30 to 5, then stay up until he goes to bed. It's funny.
I wanted to get up and make some oats for us while he was sleeping. I make mine with vanilla almond milk because I love my oatmeal sweet. I use Simple Truth Vanilla Almond Milk. I also use the Quaker brand of steel cut oats. Today I am making 4 servings so we have left over for dessert tonight. It calls for 4 cups of almond milk and one cup of oats. You need to bring the milk up to a boil first.
Once the milk comes to a boil, lower the heat and add in the oats.
This is one cup of oats to 4 cups of almond milk (4 servings).
After you add the oats, just stir occasionally for the first 5-10 minutes. I start stirring more frequently after that because I love the creamy texture it gives. Once the milk has cooked down, it's pretty much done. Here is the finished product. I love fresh raspberries on mine.
It's delicious and the oat grains are a little toothy, but so yummy!
Okay, that's all for this morning. I really love my new oatmeal!
