I am not a huge fan of breakfast. I know that it is supposed to be the “most important meal of the day” but I think that is a myth perpetrated by a bacon company back in the 1930s or something. I just don’t feel hungry until about three or four hours after I get up. (Don’t get between me and my coffee, however!) But, I like most breakfast food and most of it is on my list of safe foods! Today I am having oatmeal. It’s 8am and Snickers got me up at 5 so now I’m hungry and looking forward a great day of laundry and Lego sorting! I really enjoy steel cut oats but I have found a couple of brands of instant oats that work really well for busy days. I like to add some fruit to my oats and really love apples. Freeze-dried apples (Mother Earth Products makes the best in my opinion) are a great addition and mean I don’t need to add any sugar. Mother Earth Products have great customer service (they don’t pay me or anything but I was kind of rude to a customer service person once so I like to give them a shout out when I can!) and they don’t add anything to their products. About 2 Tablespoons of freeze dried apples and an equal amount of additional boiling water added to the oatmeal makes it a good consistency. And I feel better because I am getting some fruit with my breakfast carbs!

I love to cook and tried to make this a cooking blog. Then Snickers took over. Then we moved and a pandemic happened. Things got in the way. Now, I think it will alternate between cooking and dog adventures. View all posts by redapron1964
