Porridge is my life. Literally, eternally, always and forever. I don't remember when, last time I had a day without porridge. It does makes me think that perhaps I'm making up to porridge for all these years when I absolutely hated it (soz porridge!).
As mentioned many times before, I looooveee berries!!! And to my horror, I've noticed that some of them started to look a bit tired in my fridge, so what a better use for them than make a warm compote to go with my warm porridge.
Also, cardamom! Wonderful, super aromatic, incredibly flavorsome spice, which goes beautifully with warm porridge. And it's so quick to make! Because mornings are hard as they are, that's one less thing to worry about. As all what it will take is about 10 minutes. 10 minutes, and you have a lovely, healthy breakfast that will set you for the rest of the day!

That was best decision I've made today so far! Mind you, the day is still young, so there is a chance, I may make another good decision. Will let you know what it was, once it happens.
