Gingered apricot oatmeal

Today I lounged outside with S, looking up the birds we could see and not only hear in his field guide. I relished the seasonably aberrant cool breeze licking my skin, and decided I could pull off oatmeal for breakfast at least one more time.

Gingered apricot oatmeal

2 cups organic whole milk
2 cups water
1 cup steel cut oats
3 T chopped crystallized ginger
8 dried apricots, chopped
a few glugs of maple syrup
a few T of kefir
4 T of ground flaxseeds
Turbinado sugar at the table

Heat liquids to a boil. Add oatmeal, stirring with a whisk vigorously. Lower heat slightly and stir frequently. When oatmeal has thickened and softened, add ginger and apricots, turn down to low heat, and cover. A few minutes later, add the syrup, kefir, and flaxseeds, and serve. Mmmmmmm.
