Murphy wanted me to share his dog breakfast on the blog this morning. Looks delicious, doesn’t it? 😉
(Yes, my dog eats off of a plate… and a Christmas placemat.)
For breakfast, Murphy ate 1 cup of Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover’s Soul (puppy variety) and a bowl of water from the kitchen sink. Best breakfast ever! He scarfs it down every morning!
Ok, time for the human breakfast!
Good morning, Mal!
(Poor Mal. He’s such a good sport about me subjecting him to early-morning blog photos.)
For breakfast this morning, I made Mal and me a big batch of apple-cinnamon-raisin-brown sugar oatmeal to share.
In the mix:
- 1 cup oats
- 1 cup vanilla soy milk
- 1 cup water
- 1 apple, diced
- 1/2 tbsp brown sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
The key to apples in oatmeal is cooking them before you add the oats. I cut up the apples, add them to the pot along with some water/milk, and then sprinkle cinnamon and brown sugar on top. I let them cook for about 3-5 minutes before adding the oats, water, soy milk, raisins, etc. The apples come out soft and sweet!
I also had a glass of iced coffee with breakfast.
