Rolled Oats, Cardamon, Cara Cara & Blood Oranges Porridge

You would think me Goldilocks. (**)

Growing up I loathed porridge. My mom used to make it especially when we were young with semolina and sometimes rice. You can imagine my contorted young face, my eyes rolling as I get nauseated just from the thought and anticipation of what's simmering in the sauce pan on top of the gas stove in our tiny kitchen. My mom was determined to get some cheap and quick nutritious breakfast into our skinny bodies. Spoon feeding us on a busy morning, just moments before we bolt out the door, late, to school. That was kindergarten and first grade. My mom already on kid number five and pregnant again. I got no memories of porridge thereafter.
As much as I loathed porridge, I loved the romantic notion of it in Goldilocks and The Three Bears throughout my childhood and into my adulthood. I was the protagonist in the fairy tale floating from one bowl to the next and breaking baby bear's chair, weren't we all?! Years later we bought a house of bricks but that is another fairy tale.
Today, not one bowl full since kindergarten and first grade, a sudden craving came over me for porridge.  I was hoping my craving would disappear into thin air and dissipate. Sunday came and my curious craving not lost, intensified, and I caved in.
