Raisin Oatmeal Mix
We like the sweet cinnamony flavor of this instant oatmeal at our house, relates Robert Caummisar of Grayson, Kentucky. The mix makes it convenient to zap a bowl in the microwave for a speedy breakfast. If you like milk with your oatmeal, you can pour a little on top before serving.
