You’ve got to make this before the berries become obsolete for the winter. Down here in San Antonio, I’m still seeing good prices on berries every couple of weeks.
And if you see a great deal on berries…stock up and freeze. Now. You’ll thank yourself in the middle of December or January when you are in desperate need of a taste of summer.
(Yes, same method/concept works for blackberries!)
I went for the all smaller berries in this one…but feel free to get crazy and add a 4th berry (our friend, the strawberry) into the mix…just cut them up into smaller bite size pieces.
Did you know that Baked Oatmeal freezes really well!?! Here’s how I freeze ours…We usually eat about 1/2 – 3/4 of a 9×13 pan in one shot (whether for breakfast or for lunch), so I usually end up with a few ‘pieces’ that I freeze. After the baked oatmeal has cooled completely, I cut it up into individual single serving portions and freezer in plastic sandwich freezer baggies. Then I can quickly reheat them in the microwave or toaster oven if we are having for breakfast, or I can drop them frozen right into lunch boxes and they will thaw in time for the lunch hour. (Baked Oatmeal in School Lunchboxes Idea!)

To Freeze: Let the oatmeal cool completely, cut into single serving sizes (I usually do squares), and freeze individual portions in plastic baggies.
To Thaw: Drop the frozen oatmeal square into a bowl, and defrost it in the microwave for a minute, then warm it at regular temp for a minute, then add milk or yogurt and any other toppings and gobble it up!
