I had to try a few more flavors of refrigerator oatmeal since the kids are enjoying it as much as I am... Seriously, I made up about 6 of them and then ran out within 2 days because everyone was eating them!! So, I picked up the supplies to make a bunch of them and spent about a half an hour one day making up 12 new oatmeals, we'll see how long these last! :) My son tried the apple cinnamon first and after the initial bite was freaking out about how good it was. He wanted to eat the other one and was mad at me when I made him pick something else to eat with it. I swear, that kid is going to eat me out of house and home and he's ONLY 9!! This one is super simple to throw together and I usually have all the ingredients on hand... LOVE IT!
