Happy Friday, 3rd January
Have you ever cooked oatmeal or porridge for yourself or your kids, just to find that you were a little ambitious on the portions?? Yes I know that I have been there and then you think, well what in the world am I going to do with this…
You are in luck! Did you know that cooked oatmeal can be saved in the fridge if properly stored for 4-6 days?? And it can be frozen for 6 months and sometimes beyond!
But what about the next day or two? Not sure about you, but dried up or mushy old oatmeal or porridge doesn’t sound all that appetising… So what can you do with it??
How about try oatmeal bars, cookies, bread or muffins? Check this out at Organic Authority and you can find some tasty recipes that make use of leftover cooked oatmeal You can also try these porridge pancakes that use up leftover porridge!
I was thinking I might try to use it on top of vanilla ice cream if I made some oatmeal with brown sugar and cinnamon If I do, I will let you know how it goes
