Hubby has officially put me in charge of his bowels. While this is not nearly
as romantic as when I was responsible for his libido, it's a necessary
evil I suppose, considering we're approaching dinosaur age. If this is too much info, I apologize and respectfully submit this recipe to you in reparation for any mental harm done. You'll thank me later for your regularity (and maybe some lowered cholesterol too!)
If you're not familiar with (or don't care for) Coach's Oats, I'm guessing this recipe can be easily modified to almost any non-instant oatmeal. Also, this makes a boat-load of oatmeal. I wanted to use the entire cans of evaporated milk and pumpkin. When I make oatmeal I portion the cooked oats and store in containers in the fridge, then reheat individual servings as needed, making for an easy breakfast for hubby to pack for work. Coach's Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal
2 1/2 cups Coach's Oats (regular steel cut oats would also work well here) 6 cups water 1 (12 oz) can evaporated milk (I used 2%) pinch of salt 1/2 cup Splenda brown sugar (or 1 cup regular) 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice 1/2 tsp vanilla 1 (15 oz) can of pumpkin puree
Place water, evaporated milk and salt in pot and bring to a boil. Add the oats, stir, reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from heat, cover and let sit for a minute or two.
Stir in brown sugar, spice, vanilla and pumpkin puree. Combine well.
(health update: drainage tube is out and I'm on the mend!)
This is my documentation of my life after turning 50. Lots of recipes, some healthy, some not so much... tossed up with a hefty dose of sarcasm and motherly love.
