We always used to pop a cup full of porridge oats in with a cup and a half of milk and water, heat and that was it. Apparently the Quaker brand has created a special packaging so you can now have a mini-packet which also serves to measure out the liquid necessary for your porridge. I thought we had jugs or mugs to measure things out!
We truly, truly, truly, don’t need these extra packagings… so if you are a regular fan of porridge, please use the old oats on the right-hand image that come in a box you can then compost. And not the image on the left, below, that comes with 20 sachets inside!!!
Thanks to Milenne who brought this to my attention!
