Microwave Orange-Raisin Oatmeal
Exactly what I needed this morning. I haven’t felt “up to par” for a couple of days but I knew I had to eat something. Using the microwave makes it so simple and easy.
1/3 cup dry oatmeal flakes, 2/3 cup liquid (I used orange juice), added raisins. Cooked on high for about 1 1/2 minutes. Sprinkled with cinnamon, a very small amount of brown sugar, a small pat of butter, and added two pieces of toasted whole wheat bread.
Delicious, easy, fast, and nutritious.

For a change, quick breakfast of cheese toast, egg, and sliced fruit.
Whole wheat bread with grated cheese, toasted in a toaster oven. Egg done on top of stove in a very small amount of butter. Added a few slices of fresh fruit that I had on hand.

Since I’ve cut back on bread intake, I seldom treat myself to waffles. I had fruit, non-dairy topping, and canned blueberry pie filling on hand. So, yes—I did it. LOL (and yes, overdid it, too!) One good thing about waffles, you can prepare a few and freeze the extras)
Rather simple to make with packaged mix and canned pie filling. Chop the fruit and place in a bowl or add to top of waffles when ready to serve. Add syrup, if desired. I included photo of both.
