Slow Cooker Oatmeal

My new fall/winter plan is to make my oatmeal for the week every Sunday night to have for the rest of the week.  I had never cooked it this way before, but it is definitely the way to go.  I used old fashioned oats and it cooked really thick, which is the way I like mine.  If you want it creamier, you can also add some additional milk to it in the morning.  I also sprinkled mine with brown sugar.  Enjoy!
Slow Cooker Oatmeal
1 2/3 cup oats (steel cut or old-fashioned rolled, not instant)
2 cups water
2 cups skim milk
pinch of salt
*I also added a little bit of cinnamon

Combine oats, water, milk, salt, and cinnamon in slow cooker, and stir.  Cover and cook for 8 hours on low heat.
