this morning we had juicy grapefruit and steel cut oats [oatmeal].
i had only tried grapefruit once when i was a kid and at that instance
made up my mind that i don't like it! too sour, too tart!
well half of landon's heart is made up of grapefruit and
he eats it like an art! it's his absolutely favorite so
what kind of wife would i be if i didn't give it another try?
well i had one this morning and loved it! so perfect and i'm craving
another one but i want to save it and not eat them all in one day! :)
and about those steel-cut oats...
my mother always made this for breakfast and it's one of my favorite
breakfasts to keep me warm [it was -10 this morning! yikes!]
steel-cut oats take a bit longer to make [30 minutes] but are healthier because they
are unrefined and have not been precooked. they are more of the
natural grain of oats, and much better in my opinion!
