Brrrr… Feel that? That’s the chill Summer left when the door slammed as it left the building.
It gets harder and harder these days to rip myself out from the warm blankets. On the mornings when I get up a little too late for a proper breakfast I like to whip up some of Bob’s Red Mill’s Mighty Tasty Hot Cereal.
In one day I made 6 different batches of scones. SIX. And I taste-tested four of them. Yes, I am owning up and admitting that I ate 4 scones in one (very long) kitchen sitting. I wear my hobbit-like tendencies with pride. :]
I just finished off the last bite of this bowl of oatmeal, and as I was eating it I tried to remember the last time I had such a good bowl of hot oats. Before, I just did oatmeal the normal way: Boil 1:2 oats to water, mix in additions and eat. Yawn.
This morning I added some milk, and also put my fruit and sugar in as I was cooking it. Normally, I always waited until I had served myself up before mixing anything else in. Whoever taught me to do it like this is out of their frakkin’ mind!
