Since this porridge requires but a little (very little) prep time, it will be a breeze come morning to pull this dish together. My mother is here visiting and I made this for her breakfast and she just loved it. She said it hit the spot perfectly. And it was so easy to make she will probably make it once she gets home, for her it has to be easy or it just won’t happen. :)
