Apricot Almond Oatmeal

Oatmeal is one of those comfort foods that can really start your morning off right. Something about the creamy hot cereal makes everything seem so cozy. Normally, I put chopped apples or raisins in my oatmeal, but since I had a bag of dried apricots in the pantry I thought I'd try them instead. It turned out really good. I chopped up the apricots, added some toasted almonds and a little vanilla to the oats while they cooked on the stove. I always use old-fashioned oats, not quick cooking for my oatmeal, and either skim or 2% milk. Drizzle a little maple syrup or honey on top and enjoy.
