cinnamon + nectarine oatmeal {recipe}

Even though I'm starting to see the beginning signs of spring (like the sun not setting until quarter to 5!), there's still snow on the ground and the mornings in our basement flat are chilly. Really chilly. Growing up in Florida, we didn't eat a lot of hot food for breakfast. In high school, I ate a bagel with peanut butter or a cold pop tart while driving myself to school every morning. I'm pretty sure there were pop tart crumbs in my console for years.

But living in a land of fuzzy robes and hot water bottles has brought me round to the idea of having something hot and filling for breakfast. And this cinnamon-nectarine oatmeal certainly does the trick!


     -1 nectarine
     -1/2 cup oats
     -1 cup milk
     -1 tablespoon brown sugar
     -dash of cinnamon

  1. Cut nectarine into slices, discarding the pit. (Or, if you're me, spend five minutes cursing at the nectarine while attacking it with a spoon.)
  2. Place sliced nectarine in an oven-safe bowl, sprinkle with half of the brown sugar and cinnamon. Turn on grill (I usually set it at about 180 degrees celsius) and leave nectarines until they are softened.
  3. Meanwhile, mix the oats, milk, and another dash of cinnamon. Cook according to the packaging, stirring in the other half of the brown sugar at the end of cooking. 
  4. Remove the nectarines from the oven and pour the oatmeal on top. Stir to mix the nectarines into the oatmeal and enjoy!

please note: sometimes when you ask your very sweet husband to bring home nectarines, he gets his fruit confused and brings you clementines instead. And that may or may not result in fewer pictures for your recipe post than intended.
