Auntie Melanie's Oatmeal with Strawberries--Make It A Picnic Breakfast

Fresh strawberry, fresh oatmeal, fresh summer's day. Where's my spoon?
You don't need a picnic basket for this--make your delicious, nutritious oatmeal and step outside. In our part of the world, summer mornings are cool, today about 60 degrees F--until it gets to 100 degress F in the afternoon!

Auntie Melanie's Oatmeal

3/4 c old fashioned oats
3 tbs brown sugar
1 tbs butter
1/2 c milk

Quick way: I combine the ingredients in a microwave-proof bowl, and stir. I cook in the microwave at medium heat for 90 seconds. Stop and stir. Another 120 second should do it.

Then you can cut fresh strawberries on top--or other favorite fruits. Boy, are we blessed or what?

No big production, step outside to listen to the birdsong, feel the breeze, and absorb a little Vitamin D from the gentle morning sun. Enjoy your moments.
