Awesome Oatmeal

Ah, finally time for my summer vacation! After today I will be off work for 2 weeks and I can't wait! I actually like my job but everyone needs a break sometimes.

Today we are leaving for the north for a wedding and then a few days of hiking. Then we'll drive through Norway for a couple of days before returning home. And then we'll have one week to chill at home (i.e reading books, drinking tea). There hasn't been much downtime lately, so a vacation will be perfect right now.

Ok, so this oatmeal. It's warming (for those chilly mornings), sweet, spicy and filling. This isn't really a recipe but more of a description of how I like to cook my oats. First and foremost I almost always cook them with milk instead of water as this makes the oatmeal so much creamier. Sometimes (as I did here) I like to cook the oats with some fresh or dried fruit for some sweetness. And lots of cinnamon is a must. Enjoy!
