Treat of the Week - Breakfast Boats

It's been raining so much here lately, I think if the rain doesn't stop soon, we may just float away!

So here's a treat to go along with this April Showers theme!

Breakfast Boats

1/3 Cup Quick Oats
2/3 Cup Water
Fresh Pears

Mix the quick oats and water in a microwaveable bowl, and microwave on high for 2 minutes. Chop fresh pears, apples and strawberries, and mix with cooked oat. If desired, you may add salt to taste. Set oat mixture aside to cool. While waiting, Slice several apples in quarters and cut out their cores. Once the oatmeal has cooled, drop spoonfuls of the oatmeal mix on top of the cored Apple quarters making apple fruit boats.

Make sure the oatmeal and fruit has cooled enough before serving. Enjoy your boats in this wet rainy weather, but don't float to far away!
