Cranberry Apple Baked Oatmeal

Cranberry Apple Baked Oatmeal

Well it’s here.  My first day of orientation for Physician Assistant school.  Holy cow.  I am a bundle of emotions this morning … excited, scared, nervous, anxious, ready, sad to leave my babies, and so much more.  However, most of all I am proud.  I am finally starting the process to accomplish a lifelong dream and I am lucky enough that I have a husband who supports my 100% and family members that are ready to help us along the way.  Here we go.

With that being said, my mornings and days are about to get 100x crazier and planning ahead is going to be the only way we succeed.  One way to do that is with my meal planning and including easy to prep meals for different breakfast, lunch, and dinner options.  A family favorite is baked oatmeal.

I bought a lot of cranberries in December since the fresh ones were everywhere and I realized how tasty they would be in baked oatmeal.  I simply modified my recipe for apple cinnamon baked oatmeal and the final product was perfection.  The cranberries add a nice tart flavor and everything else is great.  Enjoy!

I’m taking suggestions as to easy to prep meals. If you have a slow-cooker meal, freezer meal, or breakfast you love pass it on! My family will thank you 😉

  1. Best of luck to you! I have no motivation to study again so im not sure I could go back. My two favorite slow cooker meals are chicken tacos and pork chops.
    Chicken tacos: chicken breast, jar of salsa, taco seasoning. When it’s done shred chicken and eat on tortillas.
    Pork chops: pork chops, cream of mushroom and package of ranch mix. I add just a little water as well. Cook on low for several hours.

    1. Howdy! I realize this is kind of off-topic however
      I needed to ask. Does managing a well-established website like yours take a large amount of work?

      I’m completely new to running a blog but I do write in my diary on a daily basis.
      I’d like to start a blog so I will be able to share my personal experience
      and feelings online. Please let me know if you have any ideas or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers.
      Thankyou!

  2. You will do amazing!!! So happy for you! OK, I do have a question about all of this though… Are you planning to work full time after you finish school? Or have you not decided all of that yet? Just curious! 😉

    The baked oatmeal looks amazing! I am in love with Crock Pot meals on busy days. Tons of soups, chicken & dumplings, and various shredded meat dishes are some of our favorites.
