    Put your oatmeal in a gallon freezer bag and press well to seal tightly. Take a white piece of paper, doubled over for good thickness, then write oatmeal, the date, and small print cooking directions. Lay 're paper inside the freezer bag so you can remove it when time to cook oatmeal, so you can read the directions, then slide the white paper back into your gallon bag for its next cooking time!
