The photo is my son and myself. Now days you can get a photo made to look old like this one. This photo was taken when this was the new look.

Harry S Truman was president when I was born and world war II had ended. I grew up in a time when lunch was put in a brown paper bag and a sandwich was wrapped with wax paper. There was no such thing as pantyhose, we wore stockings that attached to the rubbery clippy things that attached to the girdle. Convenience stores were not common and when we took a trip we packed a picnic basket because many places did not have fast food. Highways had places to pull over and stop, some with picnic tables.

Egg, Dairy, & Nut Free Oatmeal and Apples

June 17, 2011
I use the oats that cook in five minutes.  This recipe is for two servings. 
1 Cup Oats, 1 & 3/4 cups water or rice milk.
One regular size apple
Peel the apple
Cut up the apple into cubes
If you are feeding a small child you can cut the apples into very small bites.
Add one tablespoon regular or light olive oil.  Do not use extra virgin olive oil or it will taste like olive oil.
Add apples to the oil
Add two tablespoons brown sugar
Add 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Do not add water because the apples will make a juice when cooked.
Bring to boil stirring constantly then reduce heat and stir often for five minutes.
If you want to make creamy oatmeal use rice milk, otherwise use water.
Put oatmeal in bowl, top with cooked apples.
