Apple cinnamon oatmeal

It's fall! It's fall! It's fall! The long sleeves and long pants jammies are on. The windows are open and it gets chilly at night. As you saw on a previous post, the s'mores are being eaten.  And hot breakfasts really do taste good! Don't get me wrong, we eat porridge (yes, Zach, we call it porridge) all year-round. I love how Elise says "porr-gie". But this time of year, that hot breakfast on a chilly morning really does a body good.  This morning I concocted a pot of Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal:
  • 2 organic apples (peeled and chunked)
  • Juice from 1/2 lemon
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 T. agave nectar
Put above ingredients into blender and puree. Combine pureed apple mixture with 1 C. milk (2 cups liquid total); bring to a boil.  Add 1 C. oatmeal and cook as you would typically cook oatmeal. Serve with blueberries.

The other highlight of this fine fall week was a visit from Uncle Zach. On his cross-country journey from the sunshine state to the deep south, we spent a day playing, laughing, eating, and drinking because... well.... that's what we do. We love you, big Z!
