The Sustainable Food Center here in Austin sponsors a 6 week cooking program called The Happy Kitchen. I'm one of the teachers, and next week is my first class. The topic is grains, so we've decided to make their very basic oatmeal recipe. (They have a cookbook. The recipes are very straightforward, and all recipes have to be seasonal, healthy and inexpensive.) I want to demonstrate that you can make food in a basic way, but then make it more interesting by putting a personal touch on it. So, community: what are your favorite ways to gussy up a bowl of oatmeal? (Remember: seasonal (no berries; it's winter), healthy (no bacon; sorry), and inexpensive.
Thanks for your help!
