1/2 Photos of Skiers Swiss Cereal (Rainy Day Breakfast)
I found this in a Diane Mott Davidson mystery book. It is SO easy and flavorful, put it together the night before then cook it on the stove top in the morning. Never a big fan of porridge or oatmeal, this one changed my mind. I use all sorts of different fruit depending on mood and what is at hand. Apples, blueberries, or banana along with the mentioned dried cherries work perfectly. As do raisins and nuts. The sitting overnight lets the fruit flavor permeate the oats and milk and you end up with ambrosia. hmm coconut would be good to try it with as well. lemon or lime zest? the combinations to taste are endless. *runs for my pantry*
