4 cups skim milk
2 cups uncooked old-fashioned oatmeal
1/2 cup dark raisins
1/3 cup chopped walnuts
1 or 2 apples (any kind), cored, peeled and slivered (easily done with a vegetable peeler)
Cinnamon, to taste
Mix first five ingredients in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil, then turn heat down to low. Cover and simmer, stirring often, for about 10 minutes or until oatmeal reaches desired consistency.
Serve sprinkled with cinnamon (and extra milk if desired).
