I almost always have a pack of oatmeal in my purse. This is not a good emergency snack, considering that fact that hot water is kind of hard to come by when you’re driving or walking around TJ Maxx, but I carry it around anyway. (Ryan puts milk and butter in his oatmeal. Do you know about my repulsion towards butter? I’ll tell you all about it one day.) Usually, I eat my oatmeal at work around 10 in the morning, but lately I’ve had to find a different snack because I bought Target’s brand of instant apple cinnamon oatmeal and it is disgusting. Everything about it – especially the consistency – reminds me of vomit. Too much information? Sorry. I just really don’t want you to have to experience it ... ever. It really isn’t worth saving a few quarters. Quaker is where it’s at when it comes to my morning oatmeal. And I just found my favorite new flavor: Apple Cranberry Almond Hearty Medley. It isn’t the “lower sugar” variety that I usually get, but there are big chunks of almonds and multigrains which make it super yum. Plus, there was a coupon attached to the front of the box for $1 off. Absolutely!
How do you make your oatmeal? And what’s your brand and flavor? I had a friend who made steel cut oats and she had to start preparing them 12 hours in advance. That’s some oatmeal dedication. I like mine to happen in 30 seconds. You?
