My husband and I agree on most things. We love the off grid-lifestyle, the hard work and the rewards. One thing we haven’t ever agreed on is breakfast. I like eggs; he likes bagels. He likes cold cereal, even in winter. I don’t. Most of the time, we go our separate ways for breakfast. Except when it comes to oatmeal.
I started experimenting with oatmeal additions after I got the cereal flaker. That seems to happen with a lot of things around here. I get a machine or tool and think, “Hmmm, what ELSE can I do with this. With the cereal machine, there isn’t much more to do with it, except add to the oats.
In the morning, when I come in from feeding the horses and breaking the ice in the water buckets, a hot bowl of “high octane oatmeal” sure is good. We still go our separate ways on the toppings, but we agree that the oatmeal is good.
My husband likes maple syrup. I like honey and butter OR yogurt and honey OR milk and honey OR just honey. You can top oatmeal with bananas, brown sugar, cinnamon, peaches, or just about anything else. Topping it with chili might not be very good.
