We take ours with snow !!
Whenever it is snowy or very cold outside we always have porridge for breakfast. There’s something comforting and nurturing about a lovely bowl of porridge, with slightly indulgent additions, that makes us feel better and sustains us until lunchtime.
It’s probably an instinct, or something we are programmed to do, having been fed porridge as youngsters, to keep us going through the lessons in cold classrooms until dinnertime (which is actually lunch time but at school it was always called dinner, not lunch, at noon).
Porridge for two people:
1 mug porridge oats
1½ mugs milk
1 mug water
Put the above into a saucepan, bring to the boil and simmer for anything from five to twenty minutes, depending on how busy you are, how thick you like your porridge and whether or not you forget it’s on the stove while you’re putting you woolly socks on.
Add more milk or water to thin it a bit if necessary. If too much of it is stuck to the bottom of the pan, start all over again and say nothing. Lulu will help to destroy the evidence !!
Serve hot with brown sugar, golden syrup, honey, squeezy Carnation milk, apple compote, ordinary milk or whatever takes your fancy. Also with mug of hot steaming coffee (or tea).
