B's Oatmeal

B is today's guest cook. Here's B's Oatmeal. Says B, "It's easy to digest and filling!"

  • 1/2 cup rolled oats (old fashioned, not instant)
  • 1 cup water (amount depends on desired consistency)
  • 1 banana
  • 1/2 cup frozen berries, defrosted (or more)
  • Salt (to taste)
  • Cinnamon (to taste)

1   Mix together oats and water in microwavable bowl (preferably not plastic).

2   Microwave on high for 2 minutes.

3   Stir - Stir - Stir.

4   Microwave on high for 2 more minutes.

Note: Watch last minute since oatmeal can mound up and overflow container. Microwave for an additional minute if not hot enough.

5   Stir - Stir - Stir.

Note: If it's too thin and drippy, let sit a minute.

6   Serve with sliced banana, defrosted berries, cinnamon, and salt.

7   Print out Web Sudoku. Complete while eating.

You stole my recipe!!! I've been adding cinnamon, raw honey, raisins and blueberries to my oatmeal lately. I was adding strawberries when they were available. Blackberries are good too. I haven't tried bananas. I also add whole milk (w/o rGBH)
It's a great breakfast.

Well, other than preparing & eating oatmeal, you've described Gary's morning routine!

i thought it was gastrointestinally repressive to do unmercifully humbling or stressful things while eating...

Bix said...

omg, he must be up to the challenge. And Gary.

It's not my inclination while eating breakfast. I'm more apt to be making lists.

Bix said...

Blackberries! That's a good one. They're so inky.

Actually I find the Sudoku’s logic and uniformity refreshingly soothing. They’re better than reading the news about further Wall Street skulduggery or more killing and violence using religion as an excuse.

haha... alright, agreed.

It's all too sweet for me. What's a good breakfast for someone who does NOT like sweets, seriously. Sweet stuff taste bad for me. I like a can of chili with scrambled eggs complete with Tobasco sauce and a raw jalapeno. That's a good tasting breakfast!! I can do oatmeal with no sugar or milk, just water and I can not do any flavored oatmeal. I think my chili and eggs breakfast is good, it's all protein? Eggs and beans? ;) peace

I remember that about you Leonard. Me too. Sweet in the morning ... ugh.
