It’s snowing outside. Large, filigreed snowflakes. The kind you would imagine cut from folded paper. I’m up early and it’s the perfect morning for oatmeal. This humble breakfast grain is my absolute favorite. With a dash of cinnamon and nutmeg, a splash of maple syrup and a tiny bit of milk to bring it all together. I added some chopped dates to the mix this morning. It was delicious. Perfect in every way.
