Blogging Marathon# 49: Week 1/ Day 2 Theme: Brunch Recipes Dish: Pan Seared Oatmeal with Warm Fruit Compote Oatmeal is one of my favorite breakfast foods and I can have it either sweet or savory in the morning. I soak them in milk and ground cinnamon the night before, if I remember, and they are ready for me in the morning. I eat them along with some seasonal fruit and nuts and I'm good to go till lunch.
