Quaker Instant Oatmeal Hearty Medleys
I always ate oatmeal in the morning as a child (Dinosaur Eggs anyone??) My dad would boil me some water and I would pour it in the bowl, obviously I was already a chef. It wasn't until I lived in France for a year that I discovered magic.
People put milk in oatmeal.
At first, I continued to make mine with water while my French host family looked at me strangely. I thought that water makes the dish healthier, less caloric etc. Boy was I mistaken. One day my host sister told me to "essaie-le", "try it your missing out on the best thing EVER." So I had a bite and my oatmeal world was rocked.
Quaker Hearty Medleys Apple Cranberry Almond flavor is the perfect match for some warm skim milk. Simply place a cup of milk and a packet of oats in a saucepan over medium heat, stir, and let it thicken. Then enjoy a snack filled with the warmth of cinnamon, tart dried cranberries, crisp apples, crunchy almonds and sweet, hot milk.
