OatsPosted: July 26, 2009
This morning I made oatmeal from scratch for the first time ever. Before today I’ve only ever used instant oatmeal packets and let me tell you, the difference is significant.
Sure, it takes 15 whole minutes to make them from scratch on the stove. Who has that kind of time??? For you lazy-wads, you can also make them in the microwave.
I simmered mine with a dash of cinnamon and some maple syrup. Then I spooned it into a big bowl and drizzled soy milk on top and dropped about a half cup of fresh blueberries on top. IT WAS SO FUCKING GOOD FOR REAL. It was thick but not clumpy or gooey or sticky. It was warm and gave my tummy some hugs on this yucky rainy morning.
Bobby, who previously disliked oatmeal (the baby cereal and instant packet kind) ate his entire bowl.
This is obviously a weekend thing but now I’m wondering;
Can you cook a big batch beforehand and reheat? How do you do that without making it a big gooey mess? Advice needed.
On this day:
