We have had an unusually balmy Fall and Winter this year. I counted my blessings too soon as yesterday our weather went from mid 40s to mid 20s overnight. The wind picked up and the dampness set in, typical Cape Cod Winter weather. I was sure the girls would have a frozen waterer as I peered out into the yard at the rhododendrons with their curled leaves. It was time to start making them one of their favorite Winter morning treats, chicken oatmeal. When the girls saw me walking toward the run yesterday with two bowls, they were giddy!
It is very easy to make and I feel better when I can warm up their tummies first thing in the morning. It takes about 5 minutes. The recipe is versatile and can be adapted to whatever you have in your kitchen. I make it as you would an ice cream sundae. The base flavor, in this case oats, is the same. The toppings vary and your own creations are endless.
