Thanksgiving is a time to think about what you have and what you are thankful for. Sometimes, that leads to downsizing and simplifying your lifestyle and daily routine. Maybe that leads you to give back to those who have given you so much. Since everyone loves food and it’s hard to live a day without it, why not make breakfast for those that you cherish.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day yet we don’t always have the time in the morning to make some food. And when it’s Thanksgiving, all you want to do is watch the Thanksgiving parade but you have to start preparing for the feast. If you are going over to someone’s house for a turkey dinner, why not make the host an energy packed breakfast.
Even though you should treat those that you love, you also have to treat yourself too. So why not make it for you on Thanksgiving morning?
There are many differences between this one and the old fashion oatmeal recipe:
1)The texture and consistency is much more pleasant
2)The flavor screams Fall and
3)It takes just as long as it would if you cooked it on the stove.
Because it’s Thanksgiving week, you may not have much time to make breakfast but trust me, this is really quick and easy to make. It also be made in advance and refrigerated but it is sooo much tastier when they are freshly baked. Enjoy !
