Porridge

I've been in such a porridge mood today, I had a bowl for breakfast and dinner! My first in ages, don't know why I waited so long.

My morning bowl was somewhat uninspiring

20g oats with 200ml (ish) almond & hazelnut rice milk with a small banana stirred in - my first bowl using banana and I really enjoyed it! Not quite the "whipped" effect I was hoping for but still tasty!

My dinner porridge was ever so slightly better - and not photographed on my iphone in a plastic tub on my desk! Inspired by Kath Eats as I spent my lunch hour catching up on her blog.

I cooked 1/3 cup oats with 1/3 cup water, 1/3 cup skimmed milk and half a small mashed up banana - I forgot to slice it thinly like Kath recommends but it mixed in well and the texture was heavenly!

Added 20g blueberries and 20g dark chocolate with fig and a handful of mixed nuts - I forgot to add cinnamon though :(

It tasted properly rubbish.

    Well have some! It's only a couple of squares of dark chocolate! It's definitely my favourite porridge add in! Well that and banana!

    Thank you chocolate button, though I can't take credit, I have a good camera and lens that does all the hard work, though I did arrange the nuts for a photo!

  5. Nom nom! I would never think of having porridge for dinner but I must remember that for "nights when I'm just NOT in the mood for cooking". Love Kath's oatmeal page, I look at it every now and again and it always makes me drool!!
