eating my winter porridge...

My most favorite winter morning offerings, porridge with blueberries, a ruby-red grapefruit, a glass of whole milk, and His Word.

If I have mentioned before how to prepare the most yummy tasting healthy porridge, must allow me a moment to repeat it here and you can thank me later.

1 cup oatmeal
1 cup water, preferably filtered
1-2 Tablespoons whey
 Soak overnight, or at least 7 hours.
The next morning, add 1 cup water and a 1/2 teaspoon salt  with soaked oats, cook until done. It does not take long, so breakfast is on the table lickety-split!

Now, for some good things to know, you may use yogurt or buttermilk in place of whey. If you have a dairy issue, lemon juice or vinegar  works well too. I love to add about a tablespoon of butter, organic blueberries, and a fine drizzle of maple syrup, while Charlotte prefers home canned peaches in her porridge. Truly, just use your imagination and go for it.

Well hello! I was looking through my own blog and wondering if I had it in me to start it back up again. It looks as if you maybe took some time off, too. Glad you're still here! I'll visit again, just not blogging much any more, either. Happy 2016!

I just made some whey and so I am going to finally try this recipe. The blueberries sound like a wonderful addition.

We discovered pomegranates this week.
I will reply to your lovely email soon; probably when school returns this week... I am constantly interrupted right now.

My goodness...you've been writing again. So happy to see this. And your sweet sweater for your up-coming grandbaby is so beautiful. Magical even.

Love your words about the oatmeal....'you can thank me later.' Made me laugh. When I was in a sequestered jury, last year, we were taken to Cracker Barrel every morning and while (literally) everyone stuffed themselves full with bacon, eggs and pancakes (which I enjoy, but rather for dinner), I had their steel-cut oats and they had peaches in them too (like your daughter's taste) with hot tea. Perfect. :)
