Having survived a hectic January (in my last IMK post) involving foraging, freezer failure, preserving, intermittent travelling, and preparing for a grand event in early February, I thought I would have a rather relaxing time of it for most of this past month. I had any number of things planned for testing in the kitchen. Instead, I seem to have this single minded craving for porridge. Not much else has been made in the kitchen lately except for tea throughout the day and the necessary cup of coffee in the morning.
It is simply made with rolled oats, a pinch of salt, water and a little milk (lactose free for me) with a dot of butter and a dash of maple syrup to finish. A perfect soul-satisfying breakfast – especially for someone who is sniffling, reaching for tissues and occasionally coughing while cuddled up in the warm duvet. Invariably, once those hectic events were ticked off the list, I succumbed to the inevitable cold.
I am now in the land of the living, have the new freezer is in place, and am beginning to participate in the blogging community again. I hope my IMK post next month will be fuller.
