Rolled Oat Porridge with Honeyed Greek Yoghurt, Blackberries & Chocolate Chunks

Oat Porridge with Honeyed Greek Yogurt, Blackberries and Chocolate

When James isn’t making us his OTT poached-eggs-bacon-&-hollandaise-sauce-from-scratch breakfasts, I usually make myself a hearty bowl of oat porridge with some fruit and honey thrown in. The past few days, I’ve been sprucing up my oats with some chunks of chocolate and Greek yogurt, too. Blackberries have been going cheap at the shops lately. Living in Singapore is pretty awesome – the supermarkets here get stuff imported from all over the world. Korean strawberries are incredible, Chilean blueberries are not so bad either, and we just bought a bag of lemons from Egypt. Back in Australia, fresh produce is typically locally sourced. I mean, rightfully so since Australia is very well known for its quality produce, but it’s always interesting to see what other countries have to offer.

Rolled Oat Porridge with Honeyed Greek Yoghurt, Blackberries & Chocolate Chunks

Ingredients:
1/2 cup traditional rolled oats
2 to 2 1/2 cups water (or milk)
3 tablespoons Greek yogurt
2 tablespoons honey
Fresh blackberries
Chocolate chunks*

*I used Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Nuggets with Almonds.

Preparation:

  1. In a small saucepan, add the oats and water (or milk), stir well and heat on medium-low. Allow the mixture to simmer.
  2. Cook, stirring frequently, for about 5 minutes. The porridge will thicken as it cooks. Consistency can be adjusted by adding more water or milk.
  3. Once cooked to your desired consistency, transfer porridge into a bowl and stir in honey. Top with Greek yogurt, berries and chocolate. Drizzle with more honey if desired.

Our Living Space

It’s been just over a month since we’ve been living here now. I’ve gone for two job interviews and was offered both positions, though after some discussion with family and James, I decided to turn them down because I felt they just weren’t for me (one would have me working on Saturdays and the other had a potentially difficult language barrier). I’ve got another interview coming up next week and I hope something comes of it. In the meantime, I’ll continue my search. Anyway, here are some pictures of our living space and the grounds around the apartment (swimming pool, koi pond, etc). I’ve been needing to to give my wide angle lens a good run lately.

  1. Wow, your new place is beautiful. BTW is the job market over there so dynamic?
    In Italy it is so difficult to change/find a new job that most of the time you are happy to get whatever is availble!
    Being able to chose is such an incredible freedom…. I’d love to experience that at least once! :-)

    1. I think it’s pretty easy to get a job here – the unemployment rate here in Singapore is pretty low (around 2%) and I think it’s quite easy to find a job here, though it also depends on whether you’re willing to settle for jobs that don’t as well as you’d like, since there isn’t a fixed minimum wage. I believe there isn’t a minimum wage system in Italy either?

      1. Right. Unless you have a “national” contract which regulates big industry fields such as metalworkers, energy/gas workers, etc… as these categories are more powerful (union-wise) than other “smaller” categories they can negotiate for a contract which includes all the people within the country who have this kind of agreement.
        But with the new laws that our government has launched in the past few years less and less people can aspire to this kind of contracts as employers are more free to impose other forms with little protections for the workers.
