Have I told you how much I love my crock pot?
Why did I ignore it for so long knowing all the yumminess that comes out of it when I arrive home to the smell of dinner.
Who's in my kitchen?
Yeah that would be Mr. Crockpot.
Because it was that damn easy and simple.
Yeah I said it.
So waking up to the smell of slow-cooked beans I decided to flip the pages of one of my favorite cookbooks Fresh From the Vegetarian Slow Cooker.
The most important meal of the day. It is the meal that will make your day. Sleeping in a bit longer is a plus. If you have kids that can serve themselves cereal can surely just take the lid off the crockpot and serve themselves oatmeal.
You can double the recipe if you are a true oatmeal lover.
This recipe book said it serves 6, go ahead and double it.

combine all the ingredients except the granola in a lightly oiled 4 quart slow cooker.
cover and cook on low for 6 hours.
to serve, spoon the oatmeal into bowls, sprinkle with the granola and serve hot.
Growing up I hated oatmeal. The texture and look made me want to run.
Then I grew up.
I discovered that it didn't have to be so wet.
Then steel cut oatmeal came into my life.
If you've never had it get off the computer and go to any supermarket. It takes longer to cook but the end the result is beyond awesome.
