Birthday Breakfast

Yesterday was my birthday.  And this was breakfast.

It’s my new favourite way to fix oatmeal.  Half a banana in the boiling water.  With currants.  Because I thought they were raisins.

See?  I grabbed them quickly at the store the other day.  I misread the label.  Because I am in a foreign land.  And you have to read things carefully.  Which I did not.

But as far as I can tell, currants are just like little raisins.  And I just wanted something to add sweetness to my oatmeal anyway.  I wasn’t married to it being raisins.  Good thing, eh?

Anyway – you bring the water with half a mashed banana to a boil.  Add the oatmeal and cook according to oatmeal directions.  I’ve had banana cut up and used as a topping on oatmeal before.  But adding it into the cooking process?  Divine.  After it’s cooked, I topped with chopped walnuts, cinnamon and almond milk.  Yum.

You also should be sure to add this to your coffee.  Especially if it’s your birthday.  It’s decadent.

Foreign too.  But I’m sure you can find it at your grocery store.  Minus the other language underneath.  Pretty yum is all I have to say.

I might just have this very same thing for breakfast today.  It’s my new favourite, after all.

P.S.  Stay tuned for more birthday adventures in a foreign land……
