Dad's Breakfast

Grandparents! This recipe is for you!  

This comes from my dad. It makes breakfast a treat to look forward to especially for children.

Dad used to love to go into a restaurant for breakfast and order oatmeal with two large scoops of vanilla ice cream. Of course the waitress would exclaim that she’d never heard of such a thing. 

With a silly grin Dad would say, “Well maybe you should try it."  

The oatmeal would arrive with the ice cream melting down the sides of the bowl into white pools of sweetness. Dad would dig in while the waitress and the cook would peek out from the kitchen to watch him eat the most unusual breakfast they'd ever served up.

I say try it. Put two large scoops of ice cream on top of a piping hot bowl of oatmeal. 

There is one rule when you make this for your grandchildren: the smaller the child the bigger the scoops of ice cream.
