Didn't know there was such a thing? Well, neither did I. That is, until my friend and I came across "S'mores Day" in a cookbook. S'mores day sparked a special interest in researching these grand old days and months.
In honor of "Apple Month" I will be bringing you apple-ish recipes all month! (Actually it will be going into October because that is "Apple Month", too!)
If that just doesn't get you all excited, my friend, I really don't know what will!
So, I have been hitting the gym a lot lately! Seriously, like EvErY morning. I come home sooooo hungry I could eat a horse. I came across this recipe at A Year of Slow Cooking, and knew I had to try it.
It is just perfect for my mornings. I throw the ingredients in, go run, dream about this healthy apple-y goodness, and a little over an hour later it is waiting for me...just wonderful!
Gotta love the old crock pot!!!
1 cup oats
2 cups milk
1 apple, chopped
2 tablespoons brown sugar, packed
1 tablespoon vanilla
pinch of salt
Add oats, milk, and apple to crock pot. Add brown sugar, vanilla, and pinch of salt. Cover and cook on high for 1-2 hours or low for 2-3 hours. Garnish with cinnamon.
Really you should check out the "Days and Months"...some provide a good laugh
