In this week’s post, Niki unintentionally stands ER nurse Corey up for breakfast after her patient’s early morning code. As if that wasn’t enough, Niki meets a traffic cop on her way home from the hospital.
If you have a home full of visiting relatives this week, here’s a quick, easy and healthy breakfast recipe. It also saves time in the mornings when working a stretch of busy day shifts or clinicals. As a nurse, I have found “cook once, eat twice” (or more) a slogan to live by.
6 cups water or milk
1 1/2 cups steel-cut oats
raisins, nuts, brown sugar, or other toppings of choice.
Before going to bed, combine the water or milk and steel cut oats in a slow cooker. Cover and set on low overnight. Serve first thing in the morning with the brown sugar, raisins, nuts, and milk or cream. Refrigerate leftovers, and reheat in microwave prn (medical jargon for “as needed”).
