Strawberries and Cream Instant Oatmeal | Recipe

I don't know about you but, we go through oatmeal like that is the only thing to eat on this planet!  
Seriously a TON!
My youngest would eat it for every meal and snack....every day....if I let her.

Yes, the little packs can be cheap (if you can find a coupon and get them on sale) but it still adds up.  I used things I already had on hand so there was no extra cost to make this.  FREE is ALWAYS good!
I tried before to make little packets to keep on hand but that was a complete fail.  I have since reworked the recipe and am happy with the results.  I decided to just keep the oatmeal in a glass container this time and scoop out what we need, when we need it.  You can also make this into packets by just scooping the desired amount into zip-top bags.

{Strawberries & Cream Instant Oatmeal}
 12 Servings

6 Cups Quick Cook Oats
1 1/2 Cups Oat Powder
2 Cups Powdered Milk
1 - 1 1/2 Cup Sugar

Directions for mix:
To make Oat Powder, place 1 1/2 cups Quick Cook Oats in blender or food processor and pulse to a fine powder.  This helps thicken your oatmeal, do not skip this step.
 In a large bowl combine Oats, Oat Powder, Powdered Milk and Sugar.  Stir until combined thoroughly.
Carefully stir in Freeze Dried Strawberries.
Place in container of choice {jars, zip-top bags, etc}
Keep in a cool dry place, such as your pantry.

To make oatmeal:
Heat water on stove to boiling or place water in microwave and heat for two minutes.  I usually fill one of our regular cups half full and microwave.
Place 1/2 Cup Mix into bowl
Carefully pour hot water over mix and stir.  I add the water slowly, while stirring, until I reach the desired consistency.  The amount of water I use varies person to person, I would start with 1/3 cup and add more if needed.

Granny's Flitters

I love my family!  There are so many things I love about each person and also about all of us as a whole.  One of the things I love about my family is we love traditions. Today I am going to share just one of the many traditions we have.....FLITTERS! To me when I think of comfort food, I think of Flitters.  It was a special morning to wake up to the delicious smell of flitters frying in the morning.  It is one smell that every time I smell I am brought right back to childhood and great memories. I am not really sure where the name "flitters" came from or if someone just made it up.  I can tell you how it got started though! My Great, Great Uncle Orville's mom (Grandma Cook) baked bread.  On the days she would make extra bread dough she would invite all of her grandkids over for a flitter night.  She would make her bread and then the extra dough she would roll out, cut into strips and fry up for the kids to enjoy.  That tradition was then passed to my
