A Photo A Day - Day 17

September 11

For the first time today, I made my own cereal. Cereals here are expensive, especially the ones that are imported from US, Europe, and Australia. The other day I was at an international grocery story. I really wanted to buy the Whole Oats and Nuts one but it was US$9!!! for a box. Next to the cereal shelf was this 1 kg (2.2 lbs) pack of whole grain oats. I picked that one instead, knowing that I have slivered almonds at home. I'm so pleased with how my "new" cereal turned out. Plus, I got about four times more than the amount in that cereal box and I think I spent only 5 or 6 dollars.

I roasted the oats first into light brown, then added the almonds. When both were golden brown, I added honey and maple syrup and mixed everything well. It is yummmmy!
