I don’t know how other people do oatmeal. I usually just throw some stuff in a sauce pot, heat, and eat. It’s definitely pretty willy nilly up in here, but I try to remember when something works. Today, everything worked.
- 60/40 water/milk
- pat of butter (do i need to clarify that i meant earth balance? i call all margarine butter. it’s just what i grew up doing)
- rolled oats (using less than I think I should gives the best results)
- and after heating, a spoonful of apple butter (maybe use a smaller spoon next time)
It was delicious. Or, as my three year old in one of his better moments would say, PAH-LICIOUS.
P.S. Can I just say how thrilled I was when I realized oatmeal was a great vehicle for jellies, jams, and fruit butters? It’s not that I hate toast, but… my toaster is evil.
