Homegrown Texan

Born and raised in Texas, I've found the home of my heart and soul in the Pacific Northwest. I love trees, cool weather, and rain. I'm a back to basics kind of gal just trying to raise my family and find a bit of time to slow down in this hectic life.

Today is my third day in a row having muesli for breakfast.

Wednesday I made it that morning with rolled oats, and I didn't soak anything ahead of time.  It was tasty, but it did give me some mild digestive issues later.

Wednesday night I covered some rolled oats with apple & lemon juice and soaked them over night.  The flavor was still good, but the oats were mushier than I cared for.  This didn't surprise me, because I like my regular oatmeal less done than most people (and can hardly stand regular rolled oats for oatmeal...I much prefer steel cut oats because they are chewier).

So last night I tried soaking steel cut oats.  They taste good, and still have some chewiness.  However I don't think I used enough of them, so the grated apple & dried fruits I added are completely overpowering the oats.  Still tasty, but it just tastes like I'm eating fruit and yogurt with a background of tasteless chewiness.

But, at least it's healthier than the egg, potato, bacon, cheese, onion, and bean breakfast taco I was really craving. :)
