But in the USA, I see how most Americans have to fix their own breakfasts and make their own coffees in the morning. Many resort to eating cold cereals out of the bowls, others just drink the store bought slim-fast kind of protein drinks. Either practice is not appetizing to me. I miss hot, freshly made breakfasts in Hong Kong. I never repeated my breakfast in the same week when I was living back home. I just don't understand how can the Americans eat the same cold cereals everyday and not peuk.... Yet going out to a restaurant to have the freshly made hot breakfast is expensive, way too expensive. How can they told me America was so great when having delicious, hot, fresh, high quality breakfast is so not accessible to the ordinary folks?
Anyway, being here means I have to follow the customs, so I too started to fix my own breakfasts (even only occasionally, most of the time I went broke and spent most of my paycheck on eating out...) Under the influence of the American culture of "instant mixes", I too resort to boxes of instant mixes.... I love this oatmeal a lot even though I still can't eat it everyday. I need variation every morning....
- 1 package of Quaker Instant High Fiber Oatmeal in Apple Cinnamon Flavor
- a bunch of fresh blue berries (not frozen, I totally hate frozen blue berries)
- a bunch of toasted walnuts ( no, I am not going to toast them, I will only buy them toasted)
- Microwave the oatmeal according to the package instruction.
- Add how ever much blue berries and toasted walnuts you want.
