Breakfast is the most important meal of the day – it’s a good way to start your day off right.  One of my guys eats breakfast immediately when he gets up, the other one sits there and stares at me for a good 20 minutes before he touches his food.  He always complains that he’s not ready to eat but we don’t have time until he is ready to eat, so it’s a struggle every morning.  I read a blog by yoonanimous entitled what a crock.  Simply put she writes that crocks are over-rated and I agree with her on some points.  But in this case the crock pot comes through and makes your morning simpler;  you get up to a big pot full of  creamy oatmeal all ready to go.

2 1/2 cups Large flake rolled oats(old fashioned)

5 Cups of water

1/2 tsp Salt

Mix all three ingredients in 31/2 quart slow cooker. Cover cook on low for 7 – 8 hours overnight.  Makes 5 1/2 cups.

Add some frozen blueberries and nuts and you’ve got a very healthy breakie!
