Oatmeal Recipe

This is an oatmeal recipe I often make for breakfast;  it's delicious and filling!  I top it with bananas, cinnamon, blueberries, honey and walnuts... I usually add the blueberries raw, but this time I decided to make it more exciting and cook down the blueberries with the honey into a sauce.


- 1/4 cup Bob Red Mill's Scottish Oatmeal
- 1/4 cup Milk
- 1/2 cup water
- Drizzle of Honey
- 1/2 Banana
- 1 chopped Walnut
- Handful of Blueberries
- Cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
- Pinch of Salt

1. Bring water and milk to a boil
2. Add oatmeal, stir, cover and lower heat to a simmer (stir every few minutes)
3. In another sauce pan, bring honey and blueberries to a simmer, cover and let sit for a few minutes
4. Remove oatmeal from heat just before desired consistency; add vanilla extract, cover and let rest for a few minutes
5. Pour oatmeal in bowl, top with reduced blueberry sauce, chopped banana, chopped walnuts and cinnamon.
6. Enjoy with a warm drink!

Scenes from around Dubai

I thought I would share a few pictures I have taken in Dubai... as you can see, the view changes drastically from one place to another!  In one picture you see the desert, then in another it looks like a futuristic city!  Hope you like them :)
