I like my oatmeal with a gratuitous serving of brown sugar. I eat oatmeal...often. Even when it's hot outside.

Me too! But once it gets cold, I eat more of it.

I am not a fan of the brown sugar on it, though. I like my breakfast foods savory.

We are sweet oatmeal eaters so I break out the fruit, brown sugar, and the cinnamon.

This is how my mom makes it! I keep wondering if that's why I didn't like it that much as a kid. I like all of those things, just not in my hot cereal!

Maple syrup. There's a maple sirup (yes, they spell it that way) place in Funks' Grove, about ten minutes from my parents' house, where they make it all themselves. When I was in 2nd grade we took a field trip out there and I got to see how the sirup was made.

I can't stand any kind of syrup except from that one specific place now for some reason. You could do a blind taste-test and I'd know the difference.

But the point of this ramble was that I eat my oatmeal with entirely too much of that sirup and it never, ever, ever stops being wonderful. Without that in it to sweeten it, I won't eat oatmeal.

edited because I left out a word that changes the placement of things significantly

SIRUP.

Maple syrup is like something from the gods. I like mixing cocktails with it.

Wait, wait, wait....egg...in oatmeal? That sounds disgusting...and yet intriguing as hell, because I love eggs. Explain this concept to me? Like, what sort of eggs are we talking about here?

Like, plain old egg eggs. I crack a whole egg into the oatmeal while it is cold, and then break the yolk and stir it in really well. It cooks in the microwave with the oatmeal! My mom is Italian and she cooks pastina this way (not in the microwave, but stirring it over the stove) and I grew up on that as a comfort food! It is super yummy.

Bwahaha. XD
I think mebbe this my favorite so far. The happy oatmeal! Eeee. X3

The oatmeal is happy because you are going to eat it!

Mmmm oatmeal. Funnily enough I hated that as a kid, but since visiting the US I love it. Why? because your bread is scary, so oatmeal became my substitute. That and bagels.

I do mine by pouring a bit of oatmeal in a cup or bowl, adding a bit of cardamom and cinnamon, and maybe the tiniest hint of sugar. Or just like you, with a splash of salt instead. Then I pour boiling water on to of it, stir it around so the otameal becomes slightly mushed, and leaves it to swell. It's more of a oat-soupy thing, because I can't stand that thick texture. I want mine simmy.

What? What is wrong with our bread?



Look at all that bready goodness! (That is the bakery downstairs from my apartment) Does it frighten you?

I don't like oatmeal super thick, either! I like the gooey bits in the bottom of the bowl best. That is why I like using oat milk, because it gets doubly gooey.

I have to say, I love little Tea's hair.

That is what it really looked like!


ADORABLE!

little Tea. awesome.

I don't really like oatmeal. but yours sounds de-lish.
