Good morning!! Baking up a pan of oatmeal is a favorite when kids are in the house. This was our Thanksgiving morning breakfast. Bake it up. Set it out with a basket of berries, brown sugar, bananas and cream and as people wander in one by one breakfast is ready when they are. Hearty, easy and delish!
