October oatmeal

oatmeal with yogurt and toastes sesame seeds

October always sneaks up on me, probably because we live somewhere with no fall. My birthday is in two days. Yep. And I'm left with my jaw hanging open, because there is no rain, wind, or clouds, and we've actually had a heat advisory in effect the past few days. It can't possibly be October.

Oh well. At least I can eat hot oatmeal.

You guys know how to make oatmeal. Boil rolled oats with a pinch of salt and water to cover by a finger's width until done to your specifications. Easy. I had this bowl with a couple spoonfuls of plain yogurt and a handful of sesame seeds toasted in a little frying pan. Hot tea on the side. THAT is fall.

Now if only the leaves would turn red and the sky would turn grey.

We've been only toying with fall. It's been nearly 80 during the day, but cooling down into the low 40s at night. The leaves are changing slowly but surely. I've been attacking oats for lunch lately. Tis the season.

We have all the right weather conditions in the UK at the moment, chilly winds, grey skies... Perfect oatmeal weather, not that I ever need an excuse to eat oatmeal. :)

It hasn't really felt like fall here either but that won't stop me from eating fall foods! Mmm oatmeal.
