Pineapple Pomegranate Oatmeal

I made something new for breakfast this morning.  Since my 14 year old son gave it "high compliments," (Direct quote), I thought some of you might be interested too.  I call it Pineapple Pomegranate Oatmeal

Pineapple Pomegranate Oatmeal

Cook enough oatmeal for your family or follow these instructions for a family of four.

Place the following ingredients in a saucepan and cover with a lid:

3 cups of water
1/2 cup raisins

Bring the water to a boil on high. 
Add 2 cups of old fashioned rolled oats (gluten-free if needed)

Stir.  Put the lid back on.  Then turn the heat down to low.  Let it set there for around 10 minutes. 

Take off the heat.  Put in a pretty dish.  Stir in:
- some pineapple tidbits, or fresh chopped pineapple,
- some walnut pieces
- pomegranate seeds

Serve with a gratitude, a smile and a non-dairy milk of choice.

Note:  There is an easy way to get pomegranate seeds out of that funny red ball without a huge mess.  This short video tells you how.  It's our method of choice now.
