We had the most amazing porridge this morning for breakfast. I remembered that the best oatmeal I’d ever had was made on a woodfire stove at my Godmother’s cottage. She had put whole dates into the porridge. It was really wonderful.
Well, we didn’t have any dates in the house, so we substituted capers. And we also didn’t have quite enough oatmeal, so we substituted buckwheat. And we didn’t have any milk (we really should go to the grocery store!!) so we substituted coffeemate mixed with clubsoda. Yum!!*
