We all know kids aren’t incredibly patient when it comes to waiting for food to cool. But I found 2 quick, easy ways to do it with oatmeal. Here they are:
First, the more nutritious method. Keep some frozen fruit in your freezer (blueberries, diced peaches, etc.) and when the oatmeal is cooked, add a handful of the fruit, still frozen. The oatmeal thaws the fruit while the fruit cools the berries. Stir, check the temp., and I can almost always serve immediately.
Second, for the days when your kids are rebelling against fruit. When the oatmeal is cooked and in bowls, nest the oatmeal bowl in a slightly narrower bowl filled with ice water. 2 minutes and you’re good to go.
That’s what works for me. Head over to Rocks in my dryer for more cool tips.
