It’s getting colder very quickly this year. We’re not quite ready to crank the heating up yet at home, but the cold long nights of winter are well on their way. We even contemplated getting the hot water bottles out last night, but Dan wouldn’t let me… So I settled with extra wooly socks and a few layers instead.
I’ve been eating porridge all summer, I bloody love the stuff, but now it’s getting colder, I want more interesting flavours and textures. Whilst a sloppy bowl will do when our days are filled with daylight ad t-shirt weather, it just doesn’t feel good enough when it’s cold.
The other day I tried my first interesting porridge combo, I made it on the hob (it was Aldi porridge by the way – it’s better that Oat So Simple when made on the job) and added a little sugar, some desiccated coconut and a big handful of raisins.
I sometimes have it with honey and I LOVE the idea of maple syrup and fried fruits such as apricots and mango… Oooo!
To be honest I could probably write a daily blog post about the stuff, but I’ll not. What I do want to know is how you eat yours? What weird and wacky flavours should I be trying out this winter?
I shall review the best!
