strawberries and cream oatmeal

For the last few days I have had a little bit if a cold. It’s nothing horrible, but last night I was coughing a lot and woke up with my throat feeling pretty raw. I slept in pretty late, which was sort of a treat! Even though I have been staying home a lot and not working as much, I still have been waking up early to take care of my husband and my house. This morning, I made an exception and turned my alarm off! It was wonderful and I didn’t want to spoil my extra sleep by cooking and cleaning all morning. I wanted to keep comforting myself. Oatmeal is always easy and I figured warm cereal would soothe my poor throat. Keeping in the theme of comfort, I sweetened up my oatmeal and made a strawberries and cream recipe. The little extra work was well worth it for the little bowl of heaven I ended up with.
