During our ten days away, we ate oatmeal and prunes every morning. Every. Single. Morning. And we liked it.
So just like last time when we went on this retreat, we returned with a hankering for hot cereal. Goodbye croissants, hello steaming wheat, corn, rye and rice. Spotted at Gourmet Garage last night, nestled way high up on a shelf not meant for shoppers under 5'7", we zoned in on this wholesome-looking brown sack of grains, awaiting our stove-top. Topped with raisins and a dash of yogurt, breakfast today was bliss.
But okay, yadda yadda yadda, if you read the article in the Times, apparently "alternative cereals" taste like cardboard. Not this stuff. Anyone a fan of Grape Nuts? These are grape nuts, but without the tooth-cracking texture. Still crunchy, but not offensively so.
So, what are you eating for breakfast?
