Another rice cooker recipe.

I'm learning how to use the steamer/rice cooker that we bought recently.
Yesterday I tried to make oatmeal for breakfast in it and used quick
oatmeal.  The final product was too creamy for us.  This morning I am going
to try again and use old fashioned oatmeal.  I like the idea of starting
the oatmeal, riding my stationary bike for 30 minutes, and then having the
oatmeal ready to eat without further ado.

I made this in the rice cooker the other night and was pleased with the
results.  I wasn't sure if my husband would like barley for dinner, but he
really enjoyed it, and took the leftovers for lunch the next day.  I served
it with a boco burger and fresh fruit.
