Quick Fruity Porridge

There is way too much going on in Canberra this weekend. Ryan got up stupidly early to take pictures of the hot air balloon festival. We are still recovering from last weekend's National Folk Festival. And today is the Thai Festival (complete with lots of yummy food), and the farmers market, and Kingston Markets.
When Ryan called on the way home, I decided to be nice and cook him a hot breakfast. Being up at dawn around here is pretty chilly!
Quick fruity porridge
2/3 cup quick oats
2 small apples, chopped
2 tablespoons of sultanas
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 1/4 cup skim milk
Pour everything into a big bowl. Zap in the microwave for two minutes on high. Stir, then keep zapping a minute at a time, until the milk starts to boil. Watch carefully! Otherwise the milk will boil and dump all the oats out on the microwave tray (yes, this is the voice of experience). Very tasty, no fat, much fibre, and two serves of fruit! What more could you want from a cold weather breakfast? This serves maybe 4 people. Or else me, and one hungry Ryan.
