Fancy Breakfast Friday: Grandma’s Oatmeal

imageI’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.

    That is so sweet. Also sounds delicious. My grandma made chocolate meringue topped pie that has never been duplicated by anybody. her pie crusts were special too. I’m glad you had special moment. This essay should be in your cookbook.
