I haven't heard it referred to as "porridge" in a really long time!! A lot of peoplle eat oats, and right now steel cut oats are really popular, but porridge is an age-old, timeless classic. Thanks for the great recipes, these sound absolutley amazing. I'm actually going to try some of these ideas in my morning muesli.
