OK a very quick one from me today I'm onward to 'womble' work in a moment - I've been multi-tasking this morning - which means I've been getting ready for work and being distracted - this morning its porridge which got me inspired and grabbing my little phone camera and thinking.
Yes porridge, the most noblest of breakfasts. I love it - you see I may be Scottish after all. I got to wondering what other folk take on theirs. I normally cook the porridge (1 cup oats, 2 cups water - cook for about 10 minutes stirring now and again to avoid those menacing porridge lumps, which are hideous) and I normally cook it with a generous pinch of salt. I don't add salt to much except porridge, tatties and eggs. (Oh and slugs but we're talking breakfast here, I don't add the salt to slugs to eat them (YUK) I add it to dispose of these menaces). Anyhow back to the porridge, take mine with a lovely lot of milk and a tiny bit of sugar.
How do you take yours?
And don't tell me you don't like porridge - everyone loves porridge it sticks to your ribs and makes you cosy on a very cold day, no one really dislikes it - its delish. If I'm feeling decadent - I sometimes even make it as normal and eat it with brown sugar and the cream from the top of the milk. YUM.
The hens today are taking their porridge with apples (wrinkly apples but don't tell them) and an extra bit of fat (/4 block vegetable fat) in there - (to help keep out the cold on this winters day). I don't particularly like it like that (YUK) but then again - I'm not a chookie.
Peedie (the disgusting hound) will eat it like that too if allowed (We don't let him) but he prefers his with a bit of milk too. Yes he gets his porridge in the morning too, but not too much.
Have a great one, and keep warm do let me know what you take on your porridge...........
