Oatmeal with Strawberries and Chocolate Chips

What can I say, I love strawberries.  There is just something so delicious about that juicy red fruit.  It’s often hard to find sweet strawberries outside of strawberry season.  I keep frozen strawberries in the freezer since they are great for smoothies.  Fresh or frozen strawberries (thawed) can be used in this recipe.

That being said, I only put a few chocolate chips to this oatmeal, and it lends a small amount of sweetness, making this oatmeal absolutely delicious.
