can you do the cran-cran?

what happens when your flight to india gets postponed and you have an entire day to spend at home during the holidays?  you put the lentils on hold, and you post your favorite christmas recipes, of course!

bonus day = blog day.

so here it is, a nice warm bowl of delicious oats with a christmas twist: cranberries and vanilla.  mmm.

the goodies:

- 1/3 c. old fashioned oats
- 2/3 c. water
- 1/4 tsp. vanilla
- 1/4 c. of cranberries
- 2 tsp. splenda or sugar
- 1/4 c. unsweetened vanilla almond breeze
- 5 chopped almonds (optional)
- sprinkle of flax (optional)

the fun part:

#1.) add oats, water, vanilla, sugar and half of the cranberries in a bowl and microwave on high for 2-3 minutes (or until oats are cooked)
#2.) give them a nice stir and then top with all your other goodies: the rest of the cranberries, a drizzle of almond breeze, your nuts and your flax.

antioxidants: these juicy jewels are bursting with little guys that want to fight off cancer, vision impairment and heart disease.  sounds like a pretty generous christmas gift to me. hooray for healthy holidays!
