It has been almost two weeks, since Hurricane Sandy came and ravaged the Northeast. Her effects are still being felt by many people, some of whom are homeless, living in shelters, some still without power or heat, and now it has snowed in many areas in the Northeast. the needs of these people are great, and they need our help. Please donate to the Red Cross to help the people whose lives have been affected by Hurricane Sandy!
I made Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal with a little pumpkin puree, leftover from baking. to me oatmeal is pure comfort food, and I eat it almost everyday. I always have cinnamon in my oatmeal, and add walnuts, apples, or any seasonal fruit. Today I added pumpkin puree., walnuts, and a dollop of Greek yogurt. Oatmeal lowered my cholesterol, along with riding my exercise bike. I use rolled oats, which have a lot of texture. I really haven't gotten into eating the steel cut oatmeal, but I sure do love my rolled oats.

** Cooks Note
I make my oatmeal in the microwave. I combine all of the ingredients in a large microwaveable container, and microwave for 2 min. on high. I like my oatmeal chewy.
