Simple Indulgences

On Sunday mornings I like to make myself a nice breakfast. Here's one of my favorites.

Make oatmeal (use the real stuff, not that nasty instant). When it's done, stir in a dollop of vanilla extract, then a half-handfull of raisins and crushed walnuts. Once it's in the bowl, drizzle a little brown sugar or maple syrup over the top.

While the oatmeal is cooking, quarter and core a pear. Melt some butter in a small skillet, add the pears and saute for a few minutes. When done, sprinkle with cinnamon or ginger.

If you're watching your fat intake, use cooking spray instead of the butter to saute the pears.

Quick, easy and yummy.

I don't know anyone even thought of inventing instant oatmeal. The good stuff only takes a few minutes to make. I've done it with raisons, brown sugar and nutmeg. I'll have to try the vanilla extract next time. Aw hell, I might just make a bowl later tonight! :)

Sounds YUMMY! There's nothing better than real oatmeal. I love it with brown sugar and a little milk.
