Perfect porridge

 It's actually cold. And no I don't want to hear from any of you Canadians or North Americans or Pommes. For Sydney it is cold, no one has central heating or woolen items conveniently lying around... like every year before it, winter pounces on us and takes us completely by suprise. To combat the morning chills there's nothing like porridge. Especially when you can so easily make it all gourmet and stuff.

Your usual porridge (for 2):
1 cup of rolled oats
1 cup of hot water
3/4 cup of milk

While it's all cooking (on the stove - you dont make porridge in a microwave do you? I shall be forced to judge!) add:
Handful of sultanas.
Chopped up pear.
Generous teaspoon of cinnamon.
Large spoonful of honey/brown sugar.
 Stir it around till the porridge is thick

Then top it off...
With toasted almonds.
For some reason they complete it.

Serve with a large cup of earl grey tea and ugg boots.

Friday = food.
