SP Premium

I added just a sprinkle of apple pie spice, and my normal one teaspoon of brown sugar to the oatmeal. This is really good, same texture as apples, I think I have a new favorite!

    Here is my basic oatmeal in the morning:

    1/2 cup regular oats, either quick or whole it does not matter
    1 cup water in a relatively large bowl
    1 tsp brown sugar
    sprinkle of spice (cinnamon, nutmeg, apple pie spice, whatever you like)

    put bowl in microwave for about 1 minute 30 seconds to 2 minutes, if you want it thick go longer for thin shorter time... if you want more oatmeal with less calories, add more water... oats expand!

    For the acorn squash, I peeled it and diced it then cooked it in the microwave with a sprinkle of apple pie spice and 1 tablespoon of brown sugar for the WHOLE squash. (my fiance uses a whole cup for each half and a half stick of butter! GACK.) Then I microwaved it for 8 minutes til fork tender, it was a side dish for dinner and the next morning I tossed in half a cup with my oats and microwaved the whole kabang. emoticon

    I never had acorn squash. Are you just putting chunks in the oatmeal, or do you cook the squash first?
    Great job finding another healthy option!
