I find it feels so right to eat oatmeal on these cold, windy, late-winter mornings. The kids and I eat it a lot just boiled up with some maple syrup and milk on top.
Between granola making and oatmeal porridge we go through a lot of rolled oats. I have a feeling we're going to have an even harder time keeping oats in the house.
I tried a new recipe for baked oats today and since I had some pears left over from a cake I had made I threw those in too.
Jibs and I sat and ate it right out of the baking dish with a fork. It would be great as a breakfast but I can even see eating it as a dessert with some whipped cream on top.
