Strawberry Banana Oatmeal

Strawberries are still in season, here in Northern California.  I like to buy them in 2-5 pound containers so I can get a better value.  The only problem is that Bud and I are the only two who eat strawberries, so we sometimes run out of ways to eat them before we get tired of them.

I have put fresh strawberries on my cold cereal before, but I wanted to find out how strawberries and oatmeal would go together.  This recipe is basically cooked banana oatmeal with fresh strawberries.  Next time, I would like to try it with roasted strawberries, for a more jammy taste.
