non-instant apple cinnamon oatmeal

I make this for the baby and I to share every morning. The following makes probably 2 servings.

1/2 cup quick cook oats
1/4 cup chunky applesauce (I usually use the unsweetened cinnamon kind, because it's what we have around)
1/2 cup apple juice
1/4 cup water (use more or less water for desired thickness or taste)
brown sugar (to taste) (I usually use around a tablespoon and a half
cinnamon to taste (maybe a 1/4 teaspoon)
pinch of salt

I usually spoon the applesauce, juice, and water into a 1 cup liquid measure, then add to the oats in a microwave bowl.
Sprinkle sugar, salt, cinnamon, and whatever other spices you want in (I'm going to try nutmeg, to make it taste more like pie... mmm pie)
microwave for 2-2 1/2 minutes
Stir again and let stand for a minute or two.

Add milk, or sprinkle more brown sugar over to taste.

I love it, baby loves it, even the dog loves it. It's really easy and tastes really good, The chunks of apple really make this great, and i'm thinking of sticking some blueberries in at some point.
