Notes: Such a classically perfect Annie Breakfast. I love my oatmeal and especially love steel cut oats. The flax adds a touch of healthiness as well ad heartiness. The steel cut oats also make it heartier and takes maybe 5 min more than regular oatmeal. The peaches are in season (which is why a lot of my cooking has used them) and it’s a dish that sticks with you all day. Plus it makes the house smell warm and homey. Not much to report this morning. The sun is pouring through the windows; can you see the steam coming off the oatmeal pic?
