  1. I do love oatmeal, especially with brown sugar and raisins. What a good winter breakfast. I’ve also made the refrigerated overnight oats and like those as well.

  2. We love oatmeal with fresh strawberries, blueberries, cinnamon and nutmeg. Remind me of childhood breakfasts. .

  3. I’ve never tried it but it just does not look appealing to me. I do like oatmeal cookies but I’m sure that is not the same. I know oatmeal is supposed to be good for you. Do they make oatmeal donuts? dc

  4. Yes, to oatmeal. I’ve eaten it nearly every morning now for the past three years because of its health benefits. Old-fashioned oats microwaved and then fruit added. Time to complete: two minutes and 45 seconds. I don’t like quick oats, though, as they are way too mushy.

    Story: My deceased father-in-law very much disliked oatmeal as that was his breakfast every morning in Catholic boarding school. One day he stuffed the oatmeal in his pockets. The nuns discovered the hidden oatmeal and doled out physical punishment. Every once in awhile I think of him as I’m enjoying my morning oatmeal.

    • Awww that’s something to think about. Maybe he hated the texture. Thank you for sharing Audrey

  5. I love oatmeal. I use Bob’s Red Mill Extra Thick Rolled Oats, cook my individual bowl in the microwave for two and a half minutes on high. 1/2 cup oats, 3/4 cup water or a smidgen more, salt, and yellow raisins. When it comes out I add a little brown sugar and about a tablespoon of half and half. Mmm. And no dirty pot!

  6. I often have oatmeal for breakfast. I like it with craisins and water added before putting it in the microwave for a minute (for an individual portion), then adding yoghurt (the regular kind *not* Greek!) to give it a bit of creaminess.

Thanks for your visit. It's always good to hear you stopped by.
