I have not been feeling the best the last couple of days. I drove to Springfield, Illinois, 3 hours from my home, so that my sons and I could have Thanksgiving dinner with my Mom. On the way back, I had a coughing fit before I even got out of the Springfield area (which I attribute to the air freshener I got at the car wash the night before and was promptly thrown out), and once that was done, I had a scratchy throat for the rest of the drive. Yesterday, I woke up with a mild sore throat and a hoarse voice. Today, I had a voice, but I had a moderate sore throat. Needless to say, a green smoothie was not appealing in the least.
Healthy Slow Cooking, and that she had a TON of recipes for steel cut oats. The only problem being, the recipes all call for a 1½ to 2 quart slow cooker, which I did not own. That is ... until I ran out and bought one this morning at 9 AM. :::smile:::
After looking at all of her oatmeal (steel cut oat) recipes, I finally settled on Coconut Banana Pecan Coffee Cake Oatmeal. Yes, it does take a long time to cook (7 to 9 hours), and by the time I washed out the crock pot and put the ingredients in it, it was 10:20 AM. I didn't care. I decided I would eat the rest of the soup I had in the fridge early and eat the steel cut oats later.
I can't wait to try more of Kathy's oatmeal recipes. These will be perfect for the upcoming winter months.
