Well, it’s happened. Chefmate and I have decided to take some time off. Rather, I broke his glass basin and he retaliated by fudging my morning fix. I rigged it up so the coffee would brew right into my mug…
… but alas, Chefmate wasn’t having any of it.
After some elaborate straining I got a single cup, but I don’t think we’re going to stay friends after this.
Thursday mornings are pretty luxurious because class doesn’t start until 3, so I whipped up a big pot of steel cut oats.
In the pot:
- 1 cup steel cut oats
- 2 cups water
- 2 cups skim milk
- 1 tbsp flax meal
- 1 tsp almond extract
- dried apples
- 1 banana
In my individual bowl (the pot makes four servings), I piled on the toppings (there’s oatmeal underneath, I promise).
- 1/2 Ambrosia apple
- mixed nuts (hazelnuts, walnuts, pecans, cashews, and 1 brazil nut for selenium)
- brown sugar
The apple was a great addition and went really well with all the nuts. Stove-top oats are great not only because they taste better, but if I’m going to spend the time preparing them I might as well make a lot and have breakfast taken care of for the next few days.
Do you make anything in batches for the week, like oatmeal or rice?
Last up: you’ve seen them everywhere, but now enter for a chance to WIN some PURE bars over at Carrots ‘n Cake!
Have a happy Thursday!
