My kiddo cannot get enough of strawberries. I unearthed another 1 lb bag of frozen strawberries from last year's garden in the deep freeze and set to work the other morning. The extracts really take it to another level and make it special. The strawberries turn the oatmeal a lovely pink color. The Kiddo had seconds.

1 lb frozen strawberries (or could use fresh in season)
1 1/2 c old fashioned oats
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp orange extract
2 T honey or to taste
3 T ground flax seed
Walnuts and plain yogurt for topping
Bring the water and strawberries to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce the heat and simmer until the strawberries are cooked and tender. Stir in the oats, simmer another 5 minutes, until oats are cooked and starting to become thicker. Stir in extracts, honey and ground flax seed. Serve topped with walnuts and yogurt. Yum! Serves 4 or more.
