After having searched around for a cooked rice porridge breakfast recipe that I really liked, one that could be prepared quickly, I came up with my own. So, with both wholegrain and non-wholegrain rice lovers in mind this is the outcome.

It fits in perfectly with my morning routine. If I have this at 6am, I’m not hungry again until lunch at 12, having just a piece of fruit in between.

Hence this now becoming my latest breakfast obsession it not only tastes fantastic but it’s a time saver too!

If you’re a porridge lover. I think you’re going to enjoy this! 🙂

So anyway, back into reality, how was your weekend?

I’m all “fished” out!

Yep, I’m so lucky to have had a fantastic weekend away trip staying in Oban, eating beautiful fresh scallops as well as climbing Ben Cruachan.

The weather was kind and the climb was good. I think I got some decent pictures to publish. I hope to find time to edit the photos in lightroom and get them out to you before the end of October.
