Thermos porridge

Warm porridge but cold bowls!!
We arrived at Lithgow around 8:30am (after leaving home at 5:00am). It was barely 4 degrees at 9:00am when we were having our picnic breakfast outside, so the thermos porridge was definitely appreciated (as were gloves to hold the bowls)!

I put the oats in at 11:00pm on Friday night and they were still warm at 9:00am the next morning.  Nick has since been given a small soft-sided esky, emblazoned with the QR logo - which is just the right size to hold both wide-mouth thermoses, so they retain their heat even longer.

Thermos porridge: place one large cup of rolled oats, a quarter cup of dried fruit and two tablespoons of skimmed milk powder into a wide-mouthed thermos. Fill with boiling water, stir it and seal.
