2 adult servings (or me and the two little kids)
1 cup regular old fashioned oatmeal
2 cups milk
1/2 tsp (scant) ginger powder
1 tsp cinnamon
2-3 Tbl molasses (if you like it sweeter...add more!)
1/4 cup craisins
1/4 cup hulled pumpkin seeds (the green ones, sometimes called pepita)
Cook on the stove top in a small sauce pan for about 5 minutes until thick, creamy, and steaming. Serve with a big mound of spray-can whipped cream on top.
Now change it up "Kris" style; Pecans are really yummy in it, use raisins or dried apples instead of craisins. Sometimes, I sprinkle a little crystallized ginger on top, but only do that if you are a BIG ginger fan. BUT, don't mess with the whipped cream...that is a MUST!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Or, at least, I'll bet it is somewhere. Here, in Western Oregon, it still looks a lot like Fall. So, on this very first day of December, I thought I would give my friends and family a gift that is just from me (and lets face it, with the way things are going over at HP, it might be all you get.) I'm sure I'm deluded, but I (in my mind) created this recipe, we love it... it is warm and comforting and tastes just like Christmas.
I would take a picture to show you (but mostly, to show off my beloved Fiestaware,) but I already ate it all...Sorry :(
Merry Christmas to all and to all a GOOD breakfast!!
