Banana Bread Porridge

One of our favorite books is about a little Tomten and a Fox. The Tomten protects the farm from the fox by sharing his porridge. Gracie's first question was "what is porridge?" Good quetion. Google to the rescue. Wiki actually. It is any grain that is cooked into a hot cereal. Often oats and we (mama and dada atleast) prefer them steel-cut instead of steamed and rolled. They get a bit old though. The same everyday. Butter. Honey. Cinnamon. And this week what I REALLY wanted for breakfast was banana bread hot out of the oven and smothered with butter. Why did I not think to combine the two earlier?What a revelation!!!

Banana Bread Oats:
serves 2
Soak 1/2 cup steel cut oats overnight in 1 1/2 cups of water
in the morning  cook on medium for 10-15 minutes
add butter
chopped pecans
sliced bananas


  1. I love the recipes and the photos of the girls...Gus and I really enjoy them. I was perusing the photos and saw "Nana" from Arkansas with the new little Emily and was hoping to see "Grammie" and "Grandpa" from Colorado as well.....they loved the trip and I told them when they returned I would check the blog daily to see their exuberance about little Emily captured on camera.....
