I pretty much love them.
Just talking about them makes me want to whip up a batch of lemon mousse. Or lemon sour cream pie. Or both. Mmmm. When life gives me lemons, I'm in a dither.
When I first came home from the hospital with Olive, my mom fixed me some chilled lemon apple oatmeal for breakfast. She explained that oatmeal helps boost a new mother's milk supply, or at least I think that's what she said; I was more concerned with why she had not shared this delightful recipe sooner...
Chilled Lemon Apple Oatmeal
- 1 C. regular oats
- 1/2 C. milk
- 1/2 C. lemon yogurt
- 1 Granny Smith apple, diced
The night before, combine the oats and milk in a bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight. In the morning, the oats will have absorbed all the milk.
Add the lemon yogurt and diced apples; mix everything together well.
Yup. That's it. Unbelievably easy. The hardest part is really just remembering to soak the oats the night before. Even the husband (an admitted meat-and-potatoes guy) likes it, so this is a regular breakfast food around here.
