OATMEAL & COCOA BREAKFAST FOR A COLD MORNING

On those frigid winter mornings in Indiana, before school my mother would prepare a steaming bowl of oatmeal for me, laced with plenty of sugar. To accompany it, she would make a mug of hot, chocolaty cocoa with one or two of those huge marshmallows floating on top. It may not have been the most healthy breakfast with all that sugar, but it sure was good!
