Today we were out of eggs, which meant I had to eat something besides my daily bowl of egg, rice, kale and Adam's homemade sriracha. Here's what I came up with instead.

Kamal had basically the same breakfast, only deconstructed and with plain oatmeal (no coconut, ginger or sugar) and with the addition of green beans, which we are pretty sure are his current favorite food.

Here's how I fixed it:

1/4 cup plus 1/8 cup steel-cut oats
1/4 cup quinoa
1 1/2 cups water
a little more than 1/8 cup unsweetened dried shredded coconut
a few pieces of candied ginger, roughly chopped

Bring all of the above to a boil, then quickly lower heat and simmer for 20-30 minutes or until cereal is a consistency that looks appealing to you, stirring frequently.  Add brown sugar to taste.

Put in a bowl that you like, preferably one that your husband made, and top with:
about 2/3 of a fresh apricot
2 big strawberries, chopped
a handful of blueberries
a splash of heavy cream.

Here's Kamal's review of his breakfast:

Shortly thereafter I discovered a mashed-up strawberry in his onesie.
