Oatmeal and Fruit Bits To Go

BREAKING NEWS FROM POPPYLABS 03/20/08: You can totally use quick-cook oatmeal just the same as instant oatmeal. Who knew.

Per takealong container:
two packets Jewel regular flavor instant oatmeal
   or 2/3 c Jewel quick-cook oatmeal
about 2 Tbsp Sunmaid fruit bits

about 1/4 c plain Silk soy milk

Put oatmeal into takealong containers, and add a handful of fruit bits to each container. Pop on the tops, and now you have however many breakfasts ready to go.

I also fill small bottles with plain silk; and to be totally honest, they're breast milk bottles. What, they were just the right size!

At work:
You roughly want twice as much water as oatmeal, but don't worry too much about that. All you have to do is add enough water so that the oatmeal is pretty well covered. Like you want there to be standing water in your oatmeal. Cover the container and walk back to your desk. You can also check your email. Uncover the oatmeal, stir it up, and pour some silk over.

If you were wondering what this blog is about, this blog is about giving you a recipe for instant oatmeal. And also about getting real on what planet is one packet of instant oatmeal enough breakfast—
