Today, I Had Oatmeal

Today,
I had oatmeal
And tea
At a table
By a window



"Nothing is worth more than this day" - Goethe




A simple breakfast with 
steel cut Irish oatmeal 


 slowly heated
according to directions
to a smooth finish


while four bags of tea
steeped a few minutes
in four cups of hot water


steamy oatmeal
topped with milk, 
local honey


and fresh sweet berries

  1. McCann's Steel Cut Irish Oatmeal - my favorite! Takes a little longer on the stove top, but so worth it. Sweet post. And it looks like you're taking good care of yourself. ;)
