Pumpkin Cranberry Oatmeal

This recipe came to fruition as such:

Due to working on some future blog posts, I was baking a pumpkin pie at 11 in the morning. I realized I hadn’t had breakfast. I made some oatmeal. I threw dried cranberries in it. I had leftover pumpkin puree, and I decided to add a giant spoonful to my oatmeal.

As far as inspiring cooking stories go, in the grand cannon, this one lands way down on any list.

At least it tastes great! I can assure you of that.
