Breakfast at College

Every single morning, I walk across the hall to our floor kitchen, and make oatmeal for breakfast.

Making oatmeal at college differs from making oatmeal at home. I don't stand at the stove and stir the oats 'til they are creamy and thick. Instead, I pour some soy/almond milk over them, pop the bowl in the microwave for 2:45 minutes, and that's it.

I pull out my trusty Trader Joe's peanut butter, and any fruit I brought from the Student Dining Room (SDR). I sit at my desk and enjoy a nice bowl of warm, comforting, not-so-creamy-but-that's-ok oatmeal.


I make a variation of this every day. Sometimes I top it with bananas and peanut butter, or I'll add cranberries before microwaving it. Most days I also add some of the Czech honey that I brought from home. Today was an extra special treat, because I had bought blueberries and cinnamon recently! Perfect.

I miss cooking at home, but at least I can still make my own breakfasts, and eat them in Polish pottery that reminds me of our kitchen.

 Does anyone have any other good easy-make, college-friendly breakfast ideas?

  1. I'm glad you took that little lavender cloth with you! It looks so good in the picture! Hopefully it makes you think of me, who thought of YOU when I bought it in Frydek! :)
