I’m not going to lead with the oatmeal pic because it is not very glamorous. But please enjoy these water lilies that I observed while recovering from a crazy weekend. Speaking of crazy weekends, I should have written this blog post immediately after breakfast last Friday because at this point, almost a week later, the details are hazy.
I went to be the night before with a lot of ideas for breakfast, but each had a high chance of going horribly wrong. I finally settled on a concept of “bananas foster as an oatmeal topping, but without alcohol or fire, or a recipe for bananas foster.” But that was too long a title for this blog post.
I melted some butter in a sauce pan, and I added brown sugar and cinnamon. I was going for a caramel type syrup and I got more of a crust. But the crust tasted exactly like cookies my grandma used to make by mixing butter and brown sugar and baking it over graham crackers. So it was a win for me. I mixed milk and oats and heated them in the microwave, then topped them with bananas and brown sugar crust. I thought it was very yummy! Luke said it was “good” and Jack said it was “fine I guess.” I was happy with the surprise-grandma-cookie memory and the easy breakfast.
