Verdict: Win

DY just got hungry. Well, I was hungry too, but I've been unusually ravenous all week. I suggested making baked oatmeal because, frankly, all DY has in his cupboard is oatmeal, raisins, salt, and sugar. Great. I did have to drop by my house for a few ingredients, as well as swipe some milk and vanilla extract from DY's roommates (after obtaining approval), but overall this recipe is quite simple. We substituted the dried cranberries with raisins and almost forgot the cinnamon. The recipe called for a 9x13 inch pan, but recipe barely covered the bottom of the pan. Next time I'll use a smaller pan or double the recipe. The baked oatmeal wasn't as crispy as I typically like (instead, it was rather soft and flimsy), but it still pleasantly helped subside our hunger.
