Strawberry Crumble


Typically I don't cook anything for breakfast. When it is the cold months, I can't have cereals with cold milk - and warm milk and cereals are not a combination I like. So being the fruit lover that I am, discovering this recipe was a god-send for me. Once I get this prepared and has it ready in the refrigerator, I can relax the next few days. Just scoop out a few spoonfuls and a quick minute or two in the microwave and I have a hot, wholesome, healthy breakfast ready. And the added attraction is that this is a very delicious dessert too, with a scoop of ice cream to go with it.
