Holiday Oatmeal

This morning I thought I would make oatmeal a little more special:

Slice up and cut into bite-sized pieces one Granny Smith apple

In a small saucepan, melt 2 T. of butter, 4 T of Brown sugar and 1/2 t. of cinnamon- Toss apples in and saute until tender on medium heat. Toss in 1/4 C. of dried cranberries and stir until mixed.

Cut up 1/2 C. of whole pecans and toast in a separate pan on a med./low heat until lightly toasted.

Cook  1 1/2 C oatmeal according to the directions.

To serve-Place oatmeal in pretty bowl, top with apple mixture and pecans- EAT!!!
