sighs… porridge. i know many think it’s simply one thing: mash. but for me it’s so much more! it’s quick, it’s so healthy and it stops your hunger for a long, long time (well, if you’re me then maybe not such a long time, but still… you get the idea). fact: i really love it!
one day, i am going to be all grown-up and professional and reasonable. i’m going to get up early enough in the morning to not only shower and get dressed, but also to make porridge. and actually eat it in the cosiness of the home, without having to stress or hurry. this would be a perfect world. until then i’ll just make a dinner out of it.
porridge ingredients: 1 small cup medium-sized rolled oats 1 cup milk 1 cup water 1 pinch salt 1 tbsp. sugar
maple syrup & cinnamon for serving
directions: in a medium saucepan, roast the oats until a nutty fragrance evolves. pour in the milk and water, sugar and salt, turn the heat to low and let simmer for 15 minutes or until the liquid is completely dissolved. add a little cinnamon and or maple syrup, some berries (optional), or a splash of cream, and serve immediately. i like my porridge with an earl grey tea on the side, it completes the british feeling.
