Stud Muffin

Yes, this time I am talking about Gabriel.

My amazing husband is planning to go to work extra early this week in order to put in some overtime without having to cut in to our evenings together. This means he's waking up before 5 am, and leaving for work shortly afterward. He really is a stud muffin.

To make his morning routine as quick as possible and never one to forgo breakfast, he decided that we should make a week's worth of oatmeal to have in the fridge so all he needs to do is scoop and microwave.

So last night I made all 5 morning's worth of oatmeal (he usually eats 2 servings...) in a giant stockpot:

That's 5 cups of rolled oats, 11 cups of water, 1 tablespoon of cinnamon, 6 tablespoons of brown sugar, and 1/2 a cup of raisins.

When it was all finished and we poured it into a crock to keep in the fridge (and also a backup storage bowl because the crock was too small), we were both shocked to see just how much oatmeal he eats a week. Pretty amazing.
