Cold Mornings & Hot Love

With temperatures dipping below freezing mornings are c-o-l-d here in the sunny south (being Canadian I ought to know) it's time to break out the heavy artillery to fight the cold - not many things work better than a little hot love on a cold morning.......

Hot Love

A hot bowl of hot love is a great way to chase away the morning worked for us this morning ;-)

3 cups water
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 medium Granny Smith (or other tart variety) apple, chopped
1/4 cup raisins
1/4 cup dried cranberries
2 cups 7-Grain cereal (the flaked variety works well)
1/4 cup finely chopped walnuts
2 tablespoons flax seed
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Bring water, salt, apples, raisins and cranberries to a boil in a large saucepan. Add cereal. Stir and reduce heat to medium. Stir in walnuts, flax seed and cinnamon. Cook for five minutes, stirring occasionally.Makes 4-6 bowls. Serve with brown sugar and a little milk. Refrigerate leftovers.
Now I for one tend to not follow a recipe exactly - I use them more as a guideline - so I would add to this recipe and say - throw in anything else that sounds good. We like a little milk and brown sugar or maple syrup on top - this will keep you fueled through the morning!!
Learning as I go,
