This entry is part 5 of 32 in the series 52 Fresh Breakfast Ideas

52-Weeks-Fresh-BreakfastI’m taking the bull by the horns so to speak. I haven’t been getting along with breakfast for some time and I aim to rework that this year. Join me in my quest to find 52 Fresh Breakfast Ideas that don’t leave me feeling heavy or my family still hungry. We may revisit dishes you already know or find some new favorites but my goal for 2014 is a new appreciation for breakfast.

It snowed today in our neck of the woods. By the nation’s standards it was not a lot of snow but for us it was crippling and cold.{{{brrrrr}}}}}

Anyway this new cold front called for some old fashioned breakfast.

So I made Oatmeal.

Everybody eats oatmeal. It’s good for you and can be made quickly. My daughter loves it and, doctored up, I like it too.

So how do you make your oatmeal?

I have two pet peeves about oatmeal.

1. Don’t add milk (my own curious tastes)

2. Never buy oatmeal in a restaurant.

How do you make your oatmeal? This is how I make mine.

  • Bring about 2 cups of water to a boil.
  • Add 1 cup of old fashioned oats.
  • Let come to a boil. You know so that the liquid almost comes out of the pot.
  • Take off the stove until the foam dies down.
  • Put back on the stove and repeat.
  • Put the pot back on the stove and turn down to low. Cover and simmer until all the liquid is absorbed.
  • I eat with added dried fruits and nuts.
  • Sweet Peanut adds milk and fruit and nuts.
