Week 1 – Breakfast 2: Cereal/Oatmeal

Weekday breakfasts are less fun.  My Person has multigrain cheerios with FF milk everyday, while Other Person has oatmeal with berries (sometimes bananas).

Cheerios: The recipe:

Multigrain cheerios (again, something My Person already had in her apartment)

  1. Pour multigrain cheerios into bowl
  2. Add milk

(Some people argue that the cheerios should be poured into the milk, but those people are wrong.)

Oatmeal: The recipe:

1/2 cup steel cut oats
1 1/2 cup water (My Person prefers milk in her oatmeal, but Other Person is milk-challenged)
Frozen berries (fresh berries are preferable but not within the budget)

  1. Boil water in small pot
  2. Add oats and reduce heat to low
  3. Simmer 5-7 minutes
  4. Remove from heat and let sit for one minute
  5. Add berries
