|Breakfast of champions, indeed!|
Hello culinary chickadees, how ya eatin' these days? Are you enjoying the autumn fare as much as I am? I'll be sharing one of my favorites soon (rosemary roasted butternut squash risotto!). But in the meantime, I wanted to share a delightful cool weather (or let's be honest, in Texas, cool air-conditioning) breakfast. I woke up this morning with a wee bit of a sore throat and so was craving some Irish oatmeal. This gregarious grain takes a bit of time to make delicious, but I promise it puts that artificially flavored, fish food textured, instant oatmeal to shame. You should be able to find this McCann's Irish oatmeal in a tin (that is, incidentally, wonderful for giving friends cookies in) in your grocery store. If your grocery store doesn't stock it (Belfast folks, I'm sure you can find it!), you can also get it here. And no, the McCanns are not paying me for this endorsement...yet.
Add a pinch of salt...
to 2 cups of boiling water.
Add in those outstanding oats...
(And then stir some more.)
Unfortunately, there wasn't any left. Can't imagine how that happened.
