Since I've started this blog I've been checking out much of the foodie community. I've run across a few different sites that I've chosen to join to help promote my blog and find other new blogs. One of the sites I found early on was The Foodie Blog Roll where there are over 5000 blogs listed. I just so happened to apply to join and managed to get on there. The Left Over Queen is the owner and moderator for this great blog roll as well as having a couple of her own blogs (the one linked to her name is her own personal food blog :) ) and has also give us a forums to discuss food types of things on.
On this forum is a lovely foodie event called "The Royal Foodie Joust" that is held each month by the Queen. Three ingredients are given to use in a dish which must be included (but not limited to). More details are here if you are interested :).
So I mulled it over in my head what to do with these. At first I think maybe a baked apple. Then I thought why not do a breakfast type of thing?
So out came the oatmeal (I used instant because I don't have any of the other kind) and the apple. Core the apple and slice it into small wedges (any left over slices feel free to eat :) ). Heat up the oatmeal in a bowl, 1-2 minutes with water in the microwave (instant version), and for non instant (which I need add to my grocery list) 1 cup of boiling water for 1/2 cup oats and cook for 5 minutes on a stove top.
The cayenne acts like cinnamon but with a little heat, and the sweetness from the apple and the little bit of maple syrup are great to have instead of sugar. All in all it was actually really good, and decently healthy too!
