I was so focused on writing my post this morning that I forgot how to make oatmeal.
How do I mess up oatmeal?
I make it all the time.
But today, for some reason, I used 1.5 cups of water with my .5 cup of oats instead of just 1 cup of water.
I could not, for the life of me, figure out why my oats were so watery and runny this morning.
I guess I was thinking of them as oatbran instead of oatmeal? With my oatbran, I use 1/3 cup oatbran and 1 cup water so I have to fill up my 1/3 cup measuring spoon 3 times. Apparently, I filled up my 1/2 cup measure 3 times for my oatmeal this morning instead of just twice.
Oh well – it still tasted great!
Definitely not as thick as a normal bowl of oats, but that blob of White Chocolate Wonderful was my reason for having oatmeal anyways ;)
- 1/2 cup oats
- 1.5 cups water
- pinch salt
- 1 Tbsp White Chocolate Wonderful peanut butter
Honestly, I’m kind of surprised I don’t do this more often.
In my family, I’m known as the one without much common sense, and I mess up easy things like this all the time.
When I was younger, I told my parents I wanted to be one of two things:
- A librarian so I could check out books for free
- A trash-woman so I would only have to work one day a week. Our garbage was picked up one day of the week, so I thought that was it!
I wish I was kidding.
