I woke this morning with a taste for some hot, stick to the ribs, good for me oatmeal. Sadly, my favorite kind, steel-cut oats, didn't have enough in the tub to make a pot, so I decided to cook what we had - Gary's favorite - quick cooking, one minute, old fashioned oats (I like them for making cookies).
It looks like shaved sawdust in the tub and when I cooked it up it looked like cooked sawdust. I couldn't do it, I couldn't eat it. Steel-cut oats have great flavor and a wonderful consistency. I couldn't do plain mush, not even for a day.
So I opted for some cold cereal swimming in soy milk. Probably not as good for me, but my mouth was happier. Time to go shopping - the cupboards are getting bare.
