I ate plain oatmeal all the time, but when I saw these combinations I tried them and they were delicious.

OMG!! This is so

OMG!! This is so delicious! Of course everyone knows how to cook oatmeal and throw in some raisins, but adding the brown sugar, banana and strawberry slices, followed by cream takes it over the top! I wouldn't expect any different from you Paula. Hugs!
