Just good old fashioned porridge, otherwise known as oatmeal. Have I talked about this before? It seems familiar.
I grew up with a “British” dad (Austrian/Czech to be more precise) and a Mexican mami. Porridge was a regular on our breakfast menu growing up. It wasn’t until fairly recently that I realized porridge and oatmeal were the same thing. To me, they are still two different things. I like oatmeal cookies and oatmeal granola bars, but for breakfast it has to be porridge. I like to soak my oats the night before. There’s a soaked oatmeal recipe here in my Breakfast recipes tab. I don’t use the salt or butter though but some people like those additions. It would also taste good with milk instead of water. When it’s all done, we usually add so many accessories to it that you can barely even see the ‘porridge’ anymore. Which is good since porridge tastes better than it looks.
Next time you make some ‘oatmeal’ try calling it porridge and see if it tastes any better! (And if not, just go heavy on the sugar and that should do the trick!)
This baby also has a thing for shoes. Apparently a shoe fetish is gender neutral.
And now I will stop using my precious time talking about the wonders of porridge and go take a shower!
