    I love overnight oatmeal. When I started making it, I was frustrated that I'd end up with a thick layer of crust around the edges, as my crock pot cooked a bit too hot. I ended up finding a glass dish that fit beautifully inside the crock, with a couple of inches of water below it. With this bain-marie method, I've had excellent results.

    Great idea for Thanksgiving morning. I'll be stirring up a batch tonight.

    Cheers,

    David

    Have any of you actually are walmart food. I live in the north east, and i find walmart food to be total shit. Granted shreaded wheat is still shreaded wheat no matter where you get it. BUt, ive never got hamburg in a tube so i was compeled to try it. You could almost taste the machine that molested this ground meat product into its tube. I tried the frozen whole chicken leggs that same week on the smoker to make BBQ. One bite and i imeditally called the pizza guy, the dogs will eat chicken tonight. Again with the steak, it had to be weeks or months old, and had been injected with so mant chemicals, you didnt need to salt on it or use and steak sause at all, and ill tell ye, their steak was total crap. Ive also tried all the so-called fresh produce, but after 2 of the 6 wattermelons you attempted to buy over the course of 2 weeks are rotton from the inside, well, it really discourages you. And the deli, well, the deli workers in my local walmart are so slow, i havent had the patience to get anything from their deli yet.
    In my opinion, the drinks and canned goods from walmart are the same everywhere, the meat and produce absolutly suck, and are a big waste of money.

    True story: My kid works at walmart, they had a steak and seafood party at the local walmart. All the meat and seafood were purchased at our local deli/meat market, not at the walmart the party was thrown by, looks like management knows their meat sucks and wont feed it to their employees, LMAO!

    i love steel cut oats - so different than the instant mush we usually think of as oatmeal. i've also been known to add parkers peanut butter and or ames farm honey, just about any flavor. delish.

    Thanks friends, good stuff. Those pies sound almost kid-proof. Much better with fruit than chicory, methinks. :-)

    Or an apple/pear/cranberry pie.

    For a quick dessert recipe using your apples, pears and cranberries - I'd make a crisp. use any apple crisp recipe but instead of just apples - use the combined fruits in the same qty the recipe calls for. You should get a sweet/slightly sour flavor similar to a rhubarb or apple/rhubarb crisp.
    Separately, I'd use the cranberries to mix with mayo for leftover turkey sandwiches.

    So good to keep it in perspective! One of the reasons cooking can be so great is that it tends to bring us together, but in cases where it adds stress and work - and even prevents us from enjoying our fmialies and friends - it may not be worth it. Glad to hear you're in good hands this year, Tracey!

    I 'outsourced' Thanksgiving dinner from Whole Foods on two occasions and although I suffered pangs of guilt, they quickly dissipated along with the stress! This year, T-day dinner will be all home-cooked but fortunately, my MIL and SILs are here. As long as there is good food and even better company, I'll take either cook in or eat out options!
