Think about it Thursday..

Sometimes the morning rush really gets me crazy. Baby wants to Nurse, Erynn can't find her uniform tie, Aria has a massive knot that needs brushed out, My husband can't find his keys, and Morgan wants to watch PBS and eat NOW! The big kids leave at 7:30, my husband an hour later and I have a baby and preschooler to tend to. Breakfast being the most important meal of the day often we are quick to pop a waffle in the toaster or quickly pour a bowl of cereal so we can get a cup of coffee (or hot tea if your like me) and check emails before we take on the day. This by no means was an ah-ha moment but everyone loves the simplicity of tossing dinner in the crock pot, so why not toss in breakfast the night before?

Organic Cranberry Crock-pot Oatmeal

2 cups Organic old fashioned rolled oats (some prefer steel cut organic oats)
handful or so of Organic Dried Cranberries (or dried fruit of your choice)
1 pinch of Sea Salt
1 tsp organic vanilla
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 cups milk (this can be soy, goats or almond milk)
2 cups cold water
Raw honey, raw sugar or organic brown sugar to taste

Spray Crockpot with non-stick spray. Combine ingredients in crock-pot; cook on low for 8 to 10 hours. Near the end of cooking, thin with a little milk if needed.
Serves appox 8

It's really that easy. Think about it!
