When I brought my boy to school this morning it was 0 degrees F. Zero degrees!!! Plus windchill! Dear mother nature; please, please, take pity on us. It's supposed to be almost March, almost spring for crying out loud. We're crying Uncle! I'm keeping a warm mug of tea in my hands at all times, and this. The breakfast that sticks to my ribs and warms me up right down to my toes.
Stone cut oats with coconut milk. It's so delicious. And it's so easy that I can hardly claim to be offering you a 'recipe.' Just follow the recipe on the side of the can, replacing anywhere from 1/2 to all of the water with coconut milk. Top with some toasted nuts and coconut flakes (if you have them), a little maple syrup (a must), and warm your tummy and calm your soul. (The end of) winter is coming. Let's hope.
From the side of McCann's Irish Oatmeal: Into 4 cups of briskly boiling water sprinkle 1 cup of oatmeal, stirring well. When the porridge is smooth and beginning to thicken, reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Traditionally served with fresh buttermilk, Irish porridge is also good with milk or cream and brown sugar or honey, or with butter.
