breakfast, Ruby Tuesday

Apples on oatmeal

IMG_9016

Growing up in a tropical country, I have known mangoes, pineapples, papayas amd soursops earlier than apples, strawberries and oranges. Imagine a row of trees heavy with fruits that some would fall off the ground….well, it’s not so dreamy because it’s a farm, but that’ the kind of life I actually miss. Where I can own a garden and grow roses, tomatoes, forget me nots, basil, cucumber, and orchids. A view of pink, blue, red and vibrant green when I look at my kitchen window in the morning…perfect!

Coming back to reality now,I miss those fruits I enjoyed as a kid, where I am now they are considered exotic as were apples and peaches in my country. The other day, I tried to make this healthy breakfast, oatmeal with cinnamon apples…despite having allergies with the fruit that came about 2 years ago. My throat gets itchy when I eat them, same goes for my 2 older kids. We all have allergies with Steinobst, fruits that have big seeds in them, I think, like pear, peaches, apples, nectarines…and an odd case, kiwi. My daughter’s lips turn red when she eats them…which looks good anyway. 😀

So here’s a recipe I adapted somewhere, which would yield servings for 3.

Ingredients

* 1 cup water
* 1/4 cup apple juice
* 1 apple, cored and chopped
* 2/3 cup oats
* 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
* 1 cup milk

Directions

1. Combine the water, apple juice, and apples in a saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat, and stir in oats and cinnamon. Return to a boil, then reduce heat to low, and simmer until thick, about 3 minutes. Spoon into serving bowls, and pour milk over the servings.

P.S. I did eat a few bites of apples and a few minutes later not only my throat was itchy but my eyes too. It was so good that I forgot about the allergies for a while haha….but I will surely remove the apples next time…. *sigh*

  1. My friend has reactions like that to kiwi. She gets itchy throat, can’t eat it.

    I gag just looking at cow’s milk; so I am trying not to look at your photo. Apples seem so innocent to me!

  2. The ruby color of apples catches our eyes of itself. But these oats are perfect, and tasty – a breakfast we would be happy to get up early to enjoy!
