Cherry Vanilla Oatmeal
This was very good! Lots of flavor from the cherries and jam, but not too sweet...the kids loved it too, but it took a while to convince them to eat it!
It's from food network
1 3/4 cups water
1 cup Old Fashioned Oats, or Quick Cooking Oats
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup dried cherries
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons cherry jam, or to taste
1/4 cup 1 percent low-fat milk, plus more to taste

2. Stir in the vanilla extract and cherry jam.
