Blueberry Oatmeal

Blueberry OatmealWe just came home from vacation. It's good to be home. While we were away, blueberries were crazy expensive. So Hubby got strawberries for K's oatmeal instead of his favourite blueberries. Now that we're home, I gotta make him a batch for the next few days. Boy was he happy to have his oatmeal again.

I like to put ginger in his oatmeal. It doesn't really give it much taste but it's better for his immune system. Don't ask me why. It's a Chinese ying and yang kind of thing. His chi is too "cold"/he has too much "air" I guess? I'm not sure how to explain it in English, but that basically was the direct translation...ish. :\
