Perhaps as a child I placed it in the category of rice pudding, which I disliked.

Now we have oatmeal for breakfast often. For two my husband makes one cup oats, 1 3/4 cups milk. Stir about seven minutes. At the beginning I add a pinch of cinnamon and salt. Perhaps at the end I add a bit of honey. It all depends upon the day.

When it’s ready I pour it into these great French onion soup bowls with special Japanese ceramic spoons. I add a dollop of Greek non-fat vanilla yogurt on top and whatever berries I have on hand. Good to go.

Teach your children well, said CSNY back in the day. I say feed your family well, and teach everyone. Dee

  1. My prob w/oatmeal is that it leaves me RAVENOUS by 10 AM; I seem to do better w/protein-heavy BF like bacon n’ eggs…
    Although I must admit many days I’m guilty of skipping “the most important meal of the day” entirely ;-)

  2. Of course. V the Vet, you do surgeries early morning so you should not miss the most important meal of the day. Coffee or tea does not suffice for your long days. I thought you were vegetarian. btw Zoe was exhausted by two kiddos last week, our neighbors’ grands in our home for two hours after a funeral. They love her but Jim was gone and I was concerned that she was breathing properly so laid next to her all night on our bed with my hand on her belly. All good, she’s fine, she was just tuckered out. After all, thanks to you she is now 84 in “people years.”
