Those who know me well are aware I eat oatmeal everyday for breakfast - not just a little bit, but the heart healthy serving recommended by the old Quaker. I became very excited when I saw other family members are trying this treat. I immediately searched for and found the steel cut John McCann's Irish Oatmeal appearing on E's picture a day. I compared the nutrition facts with the old fashioned Quaker Oats, and found them to be quite similar. I made it last night in the crock pot. Yum. I added several varieties of frozen fruit. (Pineapple, blackberries, cherries and mangoes) I plan to have it this way every weekend as a special treat. To my way of thinking, it really is one of the super foods.

It's definitely worthwhile to make it in the crockpot the night before during the week, because I just don't have time to make oatmeal in the morning while getting everyone ready for school. But if it's made the night before it works perfectly!
