Easy, cranberry breakfast

What's better for breakfast than oatmeal? Oatmeal with cranberries, of course. Throw them in to the pot about 30 seconds after the oats, and they'll pop and ooze as the oatmeal cooks. Top with a bit of brown sugar and you have a breakfast fit for a king.
Time: 10 minutes

Ingredients (per person):
3/4 c each: milk*, water*, oatmeal
1/2 c cranberries (or, more or less to taste)
brown sugar
* for very rich oatmeal, use all milk, for less rich (and less caloric) oatmeal, use all water. I prefer mine half-milk, half-water.


Boil milk-water mixture. Take care not to boil over. When it begins to boil, add the oats, stir, and then add the cranberries within 30 seconds. Return to a boil and stir constantly until it reaches your desired consistency. Top with brown sugar, honey or maple syrup, and butter if you so desire.
