As I was beginning to make baked oatmeal one recent morning, my 3 year old asked me to put strawberries in it. Since I had frozen strawberries, I thought I would delight her and give it a try.
At first I struggled with getting the whole, frozen berries to chop in the food processor. Then my 7 year old suggested I try putting them, with the milk, in the "smoothie maker" (aka blender).
That worked like a charm and we all enjoyed our new favorite breakfast, strawberry baked oatmeal!
