     Stir all ingredients together and enjoy cold or heated.  Tastes like pumpkin pie with oatmeal.  Simply delicious and very nutritious. My husband is a diabetic is why we use Sweetener but just use 1 c. sugar instead if you prefer.  Cover and store in refrigerator for up to one week.  
 
 

Super filling and keeps you full for awhile.

Lemon Cake

    Well, there was great response to the 2 ingredient Apple Pie recently so I thought I'd share another 2 ingredient dessert.  This one is for a luscious Lemon Cake.  I know some people say this makes lemon bars but once you make it, you will see they are not bars, thus, I call it a "Lemon Cake".  Anyway....

   That's it.  Just pour the cake mix into a bowl and stir in the can of pie filling. 


 Mix well and pour into a greased 9 x 13 cake pan.  Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.  

    I don't know about you but I like simple.  There are times that I really love to bake from scratch and pour all my love, time and talents into it but there are days I am tired and like being able to throw something together that tastes like you worked hard.  :-)

Making your Own Instant Oatmeal Packets

  

 
      My family loves oatmeal but they don't like to wait on it.  They like convenience.  I hate buying the boxes with 6-12 packets in them for $3-$4.00, especially when my hubby or boys eat 2 packets at a time.  Here is how you can make simple and quick Instant Oatmeal packets for your family.

Instant Oatmeal Packets
 
For each packet you will need: 
1 Snack-sized baggie
3 tsp. of brown sugar or 2 packet of sweetener
a pinch of salt
2 tsp. Instant powdered milk
2/3 c. Quick oats
1 tsp. Cinnamon

    Using the above ingredients, will pack a double packet (what my family generally eats per sitting).

The ingredients you will need. 

If your family normally gets full on a single packet, then just use 1 1/2 tsp. of brown sugar or 1 sweetener, 1 tsp. of powdered milk, 1/2 c. Quick oats and 1/2 tsp. cinnamon and just 1/3 c. hot water.  

    I begin by writing on one side of the baggie the directions: "Pour contents of baggie into a bowl.  Add 2/3 c. hot-to-boiling water and stir.  Let sit for 1 minute".  On the other side of the baggie, I just put the flavor combo:  "Cinnamon and sweetener".  You can add in raisins or other items to suit your taste.
