Morning Grains

Morning grains in a decorative mug.

I don’t consider myself a garage-saler. If there’s one thing that annoys me, it’s random and useless trinkets. Well, that might be a little dramatic. There are other things that annoy me more than trinkets. That being said.

I did go to a garage sale once, and for some reason, I couldn’t resist a vintage looking mug-bowl. Why? I have no idea.

I didn’t need it.

I don’t love vintage.

I probably had to struggle through my purse, maybe even walk back to my car, to find the quarters to pay for it.

But believe me, my mug-bowl and I were destined for each other.

Which brings me to the topic of this post. Morning Grains… more specifically, oatmeal. Unlike garage sales, I adore oats. And here’s the thing: I love oats significantly more when they are being eaten from my treasured mug-bowl.

Morning grains topped with brown sugar in a mug.

And here’s the other thing. I love oats the absolute most when they have melting brown sugar and butter on top. Yes, I said butter.

I know many of you are healthy eaters. You like oatmeal with things like protein powder on top. Or something. And there’s nothing wrong with that. I wish I could be like you. I have tried to swap my butter habit for a little bit of peanut butter, or maybe fruit? But try as I may, I cannot deny having dessert for breakfast!

So, let me ask you oatmeal lovers, what do you put on your oatmeal? And bonus points if you have eaten anything from a mug-bowl before.

Don’t worry, I still eat fruit for breakfast, too.
