This has been a medically challenging time for us. As in, I have declared that ‘Apparently 42 is the new 80!’

To top off the time I have spent in vocal and physical therapy lately, I had an emergency trip to the doctor and hospital radiology department yesterday.

My husband had to leave work, get the kids from me, then take over when I headed to physical therapy.

Late last night, when everyone else was sleeping, I decided to break out the crock pot and make a special breakfast for my husband that would make him smile.

Luckily, both my hubby and son adore oatmeal so adding some fresh seasonal blueberries and cherries made it that much better.

*Thanks for going above and beyond my love*

I love steel cut oats but haven’t cooked them in the crock pot (I usually don’t make them because they take longer that I typically have patience for…) I can’t wait to try this!

So glad your hubby is awesome and was able to handle everything while you took care of yourself.
And I’ve never had or even heard of steel cut oats. We are all oatmeal lovers here but I hate the store bought kind. Will have to try this with my kids.

I love steel cut oats, I have yet to make them in a crockpot! Love the idea!

Just bought a 1 1/2 quart crockpot for this. Can’t wait to try!
