Porridge with Apple, Cinnamon and Pecans

 What do you miss the most, now that we're in the middle of a pandemic and in most countries lots of restrictions are applied to limit the spread of the virus? 

To be honest, I don't miss very much, but I consider myself lucky. I have a job, so no cares about income, and it's a job that requires I'm going out of the house and being among people (I'm an OR-nurse). I have a family, so I'm not on my own. I have lots of hobbies, so I'm never bored. Except for night shifts I didn't go out of the house in the evening anyway, so I don't really suffer from the curfew either. But of course there are some things that I miss (luxuries, no necessities) and that is getting coffee or lunch somewhere with friends and having vacations out of my own country. I love seeing different environments, especially nature, but what I love the most is trying out local delicacies and eating breakfast. 

The last trip I made before corona came was to Lisbon, Portugal, together with one of my best friends. Just like me she thinks eating is at least half the fun when you're on vacation, so we had extensive breakfasts every day. One of the things we had back then was porridge. Now that my daughters are at home every day for homeschooling and I don't have to hurry while making their breakfast, I can try something more challenging than a peanut butter roll, so I made porridge today. 


What you need


oatmeal flakes

1 apple

gingerbread spices

nuts and seeds 


What to do

Cook milk

Pour milk over oatmeal flakes and let rest for five minutes

Cut one half of the apple in little pieces and the other half in slices

Stir milk and oatmeal flakes with spices and apple pieces

Top off with apple slices, nuts and seeds and a bit more of the spices

  1. That looks absolutely delicious! A great way to start the day!

  2. Yum! Porridge is my all time favorite breakfast & I have just got back to eating it after a long time without, as I'm celiac & couldn't have it because of gluten contamination.
    But recently a family farm here in Australia has started growing, storing & processing it on the same farm, completely free of any gluten contamination! So delicious!
