0 Apple Pie Oatmeal

Cooking with a newborn is somewhat of a challenge. . . 
so it is always great to find easy recipes that have just a couple of ingredients and that I can prepare while wearing Tess! 
I made this one night this past week and we loved it! Not only is it healthy, this oatmeal is amazing and the leftovers were great the next day! 
(Still haven't figured out how to take a beautiful picture while wearing Tess. . . let alone how to take a beautiful picture of oatmeal! So excuse my I-phone picture!  :-) 

Apple Pie Oatmeal 
1 cup Steel Cut Oats
4 cups liquid (I used milk) 
2 TBS cinnamon
1 apple (skinned and chopped) 
1/4 cup raisins
Put apple, cinnamon and raisins in the slow cooker. Then add oats and liquid. Cover and set to low for 7 hours. (I put it on high and just kept an eye on it and it was probably done in 2 hours or so)

6 Tess: Almost 3 months!

I was so thankful for every part of my pregnancy, but for almost a year, I have had no desire to be in the kitchen. 
In the past month or so my old self has been roaring back with a vengeance and I have enjoyed cooking and baking like before! 
I'm having a hard time capturing pictures and writing blog posts of the recipes that we love but I will find a good balance soon and Elizabeth Ann's Recipe Box will be up and running again! 

In the meantime. . . 

Someone slept most of the month of October. . . 
Loved spending time with her Great Grandmother Gigi,
 Wished Daddy a happy opening weekend of deer season, 
 Has gone on tons of walks, 
 Turned one month old, 
 Thanksgiving tired her out, 
 So she slept some more, 
 Celebrated being 2 months old, 
 Loves riding in the car, 
 Adores ceiling fans, 
 and is just as precious as can be! :-) 
Our hearts are full of thankfulness!!
