Every other morning (when the hens oblige) I cook eggs and toast for mine and my girls’ breakfast. Most odd mornings I make warm and sweet oatmeal. Mine with brown sugar, raisins and milk. Kaiya like hers with the same plus butter. And Zoe’s is the same as Kaiya’s, minus raisins (raisins, yuck!) And, of course, little miss River grazes from bowl to bowl.
This morning I decided to try a baked oatmeal recipe. I have resisted trying this for some time. Oh, it looks so yummy and everyone raves about it. I really just couldn’t wrap my head around it. I could only imagine it sticky and gooey and stuck to the pan.
Well, let me tell you…
Raw oatmeal, straight out of the box? Not so good… right, River?
No, not so much.
But, this… now this was so terrific. Warm, cinnamon-y, sweet…. like eating an oatmeal cookie for breakfast.
The recipe called for either one teaspoon of cinnamon or one of nutmeg. So, I did half a teaspoon of each. Perfect! We topped it off with a little milk to make it creamy and Kaiya and I put raisins in ours.
Yum! What are you cooking for breakfast?
