The last year has been an unprecedented one for sure. Many of you have spent a lot more time in the kitchen. Sometimes making lists, shopping and prepping feels like more than a chore and at others it may even feel meditative. In our house much depends on our mood, energy and what we've on hand less than what we have planned. We like to get fancy on occasion, but generally the mission is to see how much flavor we can get out of simple/quick dishes. We like sliding a bowl or plate of something new in front of our now 4 and 5 year olds to broaden pallets as well.
Most of us are feeling more and more like creatures of habits in our daily lives and in what we eat. Minutes after waking I'm rummaging through the refrigerator. Personally breakfast seems the most challenging meal as I tend to get stuck in a creative rut. Well this oatmeal is quickly becoming one of the quick, savory, winter favorites!
