Heat Advisory for Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, Indiana

IL, TN, IN, KT (AP) -- A heat advisory remains in effect until 7:00pm CDT Saturday.
Temperatures will continue their heat up through the 90s each afternoon over the next several afternoons as high pressure aloft builds into and across the nation's midsection.
These temperatures will combine with rather muggy conditions to produce afternoon heat index values from 100 to 105 several days in a row. The combination of hot temperatures and high humidity will create a situation in which heat illnesses are possible. Take extra precautions if you work or spend time outside.
When possible, reschedule strenuous activities to early morning or evening.
Know the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat stroke.
Wear lightweight and loose fitting clothing when possible and drink plenty of water.
Precautionary/preparedness actions: A heat advisory means that a period of hot temperatures is expected. Drink plenty of fluids, stay in an air-conditioned room, stay out of the sun and check up on relatives and neighbors. Make sure outside pets have plenty of water.

Made by: Joyce Fikri, St. Louis Dairy Council

2 cups rolled (not instant) oats
1/2 cup walnuts, toasted and chopped
1/3 cup brown sugar or maple syrup, plus more for serving
1 tsp. baking powder
1 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
2 cups milk
1 large egg
3 tbs. unsalted butter, melted
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 ripe bananas, sliced into pieces
1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries or mixed berries

1. Preheat oven to 375�F. with rack in top third of oven. Butter 8-by-8-inch baking pan.

2. In a bowl, mix together oats, half the walnuts, sugar, if using, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. In another bowl, whisk together maple syrup, if using, milk, egg, half the butter, and vanilla.

3. Arrange bananas in a single layer in bottom of prepared baking dish. Sprinkle two-thirds of berries over top. Cover fruit with oat mixture. Slowly drizzle milk mixture over oats. Gently give baking dish a few shakes on countertop to make sure milk moves through oats. Scatter remaining berries and walnuts on top.

4. Bake 35 to 45 minutes, until top is golden and oats have set. Remove from oven; drizzle remaining melted butter on top. Serve in bowl with milk or cream and top with extra sugar or syrup.

Oats, fruit, milk, and an egg bake up into a cross between bread pudding, pie, and oatmeal. Can prepare the night before, refrigerate, and then bake.
