Hearty Fruit & Nut Overnight Oatmeal

Hearty Fruit & Nut Overnight Oatmeal

This is a great dish for night before rush mornings, as the crock pot does all the work while you're sleeping. Also great for cold mornings, and the fruit sweetens it as it cooks so no added sugar is ever needed (not to say I won't sometimes add a little maple syrup to the final bowl). (Note this can also be made stove top method, you just don't have the benefit of it cooking while you sleep.)

This dish may be calorie heavy but when you pair it with a little milk (or cream), it will* keep you full until lunch or later. If you want to lighten it drop either the apples or the raisins, or take a smaller serving.

Grandpa's Beet Borscht

Grandpa learned this recipe from his mom. My Great Grandma was the daughter of a Rabbi who moved to CA, to marry my Great Grandpa who was an Irish Catholic. Her father embraced the marriage, while G.G.'s family disowned him.

The recipe takes 2 days two make if you fix it in the evening. One day if you cook and chill the beets in the early morning.

This was always a lovely addition to evening meals in the summer. Grandpa always served his with a big dollop of sour cream to be stirred in as you ate it. (I did not include the sour cream in the nutrition info.)Submitted by MGARREN
