Pear Spice Oatmeal…A Fall Favorite!


Here is wonderful recipe from one of my favorite food blogs, Recipes Remembered....

Oatmeal is a year round breakfast for me, but I especially love it on the cooler days of fall and winter…a perfect comfort food!

Happy Fall, friends.  It’s time for spice, for apples & pears, crisp mornings, boots & comfy sweaters, marathons and so many other lovely – and delicious – things.  This oatmeal is one of the delicious things.  It’s a base of fall spices – cinnamon, nutmeg & cloves – topped with deliciously sweet pears, pecans for crunch and a little drizzle of milk.  I’m a little sad to see summer go but if I can look forward to breakfasts like this one then I think I’ll be ok.

September = Apples (+ Oatmeal)

When I was in college I did an Outward Bound expedition in the Pacific Crest mountains in Washington state. Every morning we had oatmeal…and by the end of the 22-day trek, we were connoisseurs of oatmeal. Fresh fruit was only a luxury at resupply, so we made do with dried apples and cranberries. We also had cashews, almonds and peanuts…and butter. I still love a good bowl of oatmeal, and since it’s September and apple season has begun, it’s a perfect time to pair the two for breakfast. I made a pot of oatmeal this morning, and put the fixings in small bowls so the kids could add their own. We had apples, cranberries, walnuts, raisins, almonds, brown sugar, and syrup.
