I'm not a huge fan of oatmeal, but I will eat it. I don't do the packets, but I admit I pick the "quick" over the old-fashioned oats. I haven't been able to bring myself to try the steel-cut kind (but hubby prefers it). I'm super plain too, I'll add sugar (or sugar-substitute), milk and maybe a little cinnamon, but that's it. No fruit or flavorings.
I know many people prefer cooking their oatmeal on the stove-top over the microwave ... but the microwave method is quicker, easier and leaves less cleanup. That is, unless the oatmeal explodes! Then there is more clean-up ... and less oatmeal.
It's a cold, snowy day here ... a perfect day for oatmeal. I find I'm much more likely to eat oatmeal in the winter when the warmth from it is appealing. I don't know that I ever eat oatmeal in the summer.
Have you seen those chilled, overnight oatmeal jars?
I tried (making, not eating) a couple recipes. Hubby said they were pretty good, but he has to be in a "healthy eating" mindset to want one. I thought I'd link up with What I Ate Wednesday today ... although oatmeal is all I've had so far.
What about YOU. Are you an oatmeal eater? Which kind to you prefer? Flavorings? Microwave or stove-top? Does oatmeal fill you up? I know the experts say it does, but I find I'm still starving an hour afterward.
Have you ever had an oatmeal explosion?
