First Snow of the Season Oatmeal.

Has the theme of my last post suggested what I missed most in Bangkok? Seasons. Ok, we had hot, cool, and wet-- but in Thailand I was missing autumn, winter, spring and summer. In addition to being able to dress for the seasons, or enjoy a change in the weather, I'm happy to be eating seasonally again.

We had our first snow fall this morning (it was light and didn't stick, but it counts!), so I started the day with a warm breakfast. My current favorite breakfast is a bowl of oatmeal, garnished with berries, nuts, and either dark brown sugar or maple syrup. Pictured above is a bowl of oatmeal with walnuts and dried fruit from Flying Star, the Albuquerque Cafe that I mentioned in my last post. It's a great local spot for breakfast, from the above, to delicious muffins, to big plates of huevos rancheros.

What are you eating for breakfast?

@_@ I don't know how to contact people on this, and it's not in your profile. So I'm posting here, and hopefully you'll see it. My email is colin.brennan@comcast.net, and I'd like to ask about using one of your photos. XP Hopefully this works...

Cold weather in the UK makes one thing essential for breakfast: Porridge. A bowl of porridge for breakfast is sop wonderfully warming it really sets you up for the day, especially in a colder-than-average winter like the one we're having.

the other thing about seasons, I find, is that without them, I have no way to measure time. Ever since I moved away from countries with seasons, I havent been able to say when anything happened - friend's giving birth, parties, weddings, moves - everything could have happened a month, a year, or three years ago. I like to think this also means I havent actually aged....

Am being really boring and eating cereal(yeah I know I should be having pho or something!). But aiming to make pancakes soon..but having problems finding flour in Saigon's supermarkets (who'd have thought it'd be so hard!).

I've been in Santa Fe all week. Hope you are enjoying ABQ and that little tease of snow.

Ooh that oatmeal looks good.

I'm looking forward to heading back for the seasons too. And some holiday food. It's sad though because I fear all of the unfresh, unhealthy fare that is the American Meal. Are you missing anything yet?
