Good call, especially now the mornings are that bit chillier and something warmer and more substantial than a bowl of Shreddies is needed before riding to work*. :)

*I'm assuming the porridge in question is the oaty sort, not the kind with Ronnie Barker in it. ;)

The correct way to take porridge is with a wee dram.

At least that's what my grandfather used to tell me :shock:

My Dad (like me, a Midlander, but he did 4 years at the University of Dundee) assures me that a true Scots connoisseur of porridge would frown upon they way some of us (me included) living south of Carlisle make it - milk and any sweet stuff such as dried fruit or sugar are a no-no; the traditional way is just oats, water and a pinch of salt.

Having said that, recently I've found that milky porridge with fruit, along with a pot of not-too-strong coffee, a grapefruit and scrambled eggs on toast, makes a great race day breakfast - sustaining without being stodgy.

You dad is right David; that is the way my grandmother and my father used to make porridge, after soaking the oats too, none of your out of the packet into the microwave nonsense, which is the way my son and I make it. :oops:

Sounds like the whole idea has turned into a right dog's dinner, Al.

I can't apologise enough for that one. :oops:
