When I saw this recipe I knew I had to give it a try. My eldest is always reminiscing about the the days of old when she only had one sibling and her momma would buy her instant Brown Sugar and Maple oatmeal packets. This is not really an economical purchase now with more mouths to feed. We must have been rich or something ;O) I found this recipe in the Farm Bell Recipes section of the Chicken's in the Road site. I put the ingredients together this morning in a jiffy and served up a bowl. Ummm...the person who posted this recipe has a real sweet tooth! I quickly adjusted the ingredients and now have my own recipe for Homemade Instant Oatmeal!
