Hello all,

I'm sure everyone here knows about the story of Goldilocks and the three bears.  Does anyone else here love porridge as much as I do?  In fact, I like it so much I've written about it here:

http://xteddy.org/porridge.html

(I apologise in advance for the picture of the porringer; I didn't dry it with a cloth first!)

For me, it's just a coincidence that I happen to like porridge and teddy bears, but I wonder if there's more of link between teddy bears and porridge than I realise?

What a great article on cooking porridge just right.  Our family loves porridge too... maybe that's why I started making teddy bears?  bear_grin  I totally agree with the type of oats you use - they have way more flavor and texture.  We also use water to cook our porridge with, but I've never tried doing this in a porringer - I'll have to try!  bear_thumb

Hehe -- I lined up three of my teddy bears (Lawrence, Leo, and Buddy -- Dangerbears will know!) until it was just right, then I ate it, cuddled all three teddies.  :)  Hehe, I'm not mad, but it made me feel better, and I enjoyed the porridge.  :)

As far as a porringer goes, the device I have is "special" -- designed for cooking oats.  But if you want to emulate one with a pan-in-a-pan, as you would perhaps melt chocolate, go ahead -- it does work.  Even as far as putting a glass bowl over a pan of boiling water, with your oats and water/milk inside the glass bowl would do -- it stops the oats burning, were they just left in a single pan.  :)

Oh, and should you require something sweet, I recommend a sprinkling of brown sugar only.  :)

Needless to say though, I'm fanatical about porridge.  :)

Ya know, I never really knew what exactly 'porridge' was.  Oatmeal!

What a lovely picture! And if I know anything about teddies, it made them feel better, too. bear_original
