Homemade "Instant" Oatmeal

1/2 cup "Quick-Cooking" Oatmeal
1/2 cup Water or Milk
1/4 cup or less of Sugar (to taste)
Dried Fruits of your choice - raisins, blueberries, cherries, apples, apricots, dates, etc.
Fresh Fruit if you like - bananas, berries, etc.
Spices - cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin pie spice, depending on what combination you are making
Squirt of honey, jam, or chopped fruit for garnish

Combine all, according to taste. Microwave on high 1-2 minutes, until oatmeal is thickened. Garnish as desired (with honey, syrup, chopped bananas, etc.) This is great for kids to design their own flavors!

Suggested combinations - apples and cinnamon, pumpkin pie (use canned pumpkin or pumpkin pie spice), peaches and cream, strawberries and cream, peanut butter and jelly, tropical (bananas, pineapple, mangoes, dates, coconut), lemon-blueberry, maple syrup-brown sugar, maple syrup and pecans.
