long time, no see

Well, I’ve been keeping myself pretty busy with non-crafty endeavors recently; hence the blog silence. Nick has been interviewing for a lot of jobs, so I’m perpetually crossing my fingers in the hopes we’ll be out of Ohio soon. I need a change of scenery, stat.

In spite of the fact we’ve had just about as much snow as Texas this year (next to none), it’s still plenty cold out. One way I like to stave off the cold is to make myself a bowl of oatmeal.

oatmealEver since I whipped up some kheer for an Indian dinner party, I have been pretty obsessed with coconut milk. I used to always make oatmeal with cow’s milk, but I’ve been swapping it out for the coconut variety lately, and to great effect.

raw ohio honeyI also really lucked out recently when a coworker of Nick’s turned out to be an amateur apiarist, and brought me a jar full of raw Ohio honey. I’ve already made a pretty big dent in it, because it’s an excellent addition to oatmeal.

Oatmeal for one

1/2 cup old fashioned oats (or a mixture of rolled grains)
1 cup coconut milk
pinch of salt
large spoonful of honey
1/4 tsp ground cardamom

Simply combine all the above in a small saucepan, and heat over medium high while stirring frequently. Cook until the mixture is thickened. I like to top mine with a drizzle of cream and a fresh grating of nutmeg.
