Jared eats oatmeal every morning. He likes to take it with him and eat it later. We have found the cheapest and most convient way is to prepackage a bunch of containers at one time and leave them on the counter. That way he just grabs one, fills it with hot water, and takes it with him each morning.
This has saved us money and it cuts out all those weird chemicals in oatmeal packages (and apple pieces dyed red to look like strawberries...).
Jared likes raisins and pecans.
I like raisins, pecans, cinnamon, and brown sugar. :)
In the summer we add fresh fruit in the morning with the hot water.
