Joey's Jetlag Breakfast

I arrived home from Europe on Sunday, and the semester began on Tuesday.  This is my recipe for getting over jetlag!

Make your favorite coffee, and make it STRONG.  Pour it in a cup and add milk or cream to taste.  Slowly sip while you prepare the rest of the breakfast.

In a bowl, combine:
1 envelope instant oatmeal
about 20 raisins
2 dates, pitted and sliced into thin rounds
1 1/2 teaspoons brown sugar
a sprinkling of ground cinnamon
a teaspoon of butter
a pinch of salt

Add 1/2 cup boiling water and stir until blended.  Let set two minutes.  It's going to be icky-thick when you stir it and that's when you add the secret ingredient:  a generous splash of your coffee and cream!

Mmmm....caffeinated oatmeal.  Good for your energy.  Good for your digestion.  Good for your heart!!
