Crockpot Oatmeal

I love to use my crockpots.  They can really be timesavers and during the hot summer months it seems they don't heat up my kitchen quite as much as the oven.   I have recently been inspired to use the crockpots for breakfast dishes.   I found this recipe in Fix It and Forget It Lightly.  We had this Sunday morning replacing the apples with dried blueberries.  This morning we had it with applesauce instead of apples.  We don't do raisins so omitted them and the walnuts.  We also omitted the half-and-half.  So we really didn't use this recipe at all...LOL!!   The recipe makes 4 servings.  Some of my family won't touch oatmeal unless it's baked or in a cookie, so this is enough for us.

Overnight Apple Oatmeal

2 cups skim or 2% mild
2 T honey or 1/4 brown sugar
1 T margarine (we use butter)
1/4 t salt
1/2 t ground cinnamon
1 cup dry rolled oats
1 cup chopped apples
1.2 cup raisins
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
1.2 cup fat-free half and half

1.  Spray inside of slow cooker with cooking spray.
2.  In a mixing bowl, combine all ingredients except half and half.  Pour into cooker.
3.  Cover and cook on low overnight, ideally 6-8 hours.  The oatmeal is ready to eat in the morning.
4.  Stir in the half and half just before serving.

Ok, I think I am going to put this in the crock pot tonight!!

When you are not using a copywork book, do you just use that startwrite or write it yourself? I am getting ready to get Leah started in copywork, and Clay will get back into it as soon as he finishes his cursive handwriting book. I haven't used copywork in a while, so I just wanted your opinion.
