This morning, I made this lovely easy warm oatmeal breakfast! I made 2 vanilla extracts & by sieving them, I had at vodka infused vanilla beans. I didn’t throw them away but used the vodka infused vanilla beans in my daily oatmeal. When you devour your breakfast, suck your vanilla beans & discard them! This is how I made it! πŸ˜‰
