I love waking up to a cool, crisp Fall morning! It completely takes me back to so many wonderful childhood memories. I’m sitting here smiling as I remember my dad would be up early every Saturday morning to make us breakfast. Oh, the pancakes he used to whip up… They were masterfully shaped into cartoon characters, hearts and anything we dared him to try.
I grew up with 3 siblings — 2 brothers and 1 sister. As you can imagine, the amount of food consumed in my house was obscene! So things like oatmeal were important staples in our household. Sugary cereals weren’t something my parents permitted, which I eventually learned to appreciate years later. Nonetheless, I’m sitting here with my warm bowl of peach oatmeal, enjoying the simple taste and wonderful memories.
