  • Oatmeal!

    Hey gurrls,
    I always thought oatmeal didn't taste very good, but I'm trying to give it a second chance now (trying to slim down by eating oatmeal oatmeal and only oatmeal! lol)
    please share ways to prepare it so i won't go *EURG*..
    TIA!

    u can always cook it sweet with fruits and such

    i prefer savoury oatmeal though
    my ma used to put slices of pork in it.
    sounds yuck but it is yum!

      thanks nat! you're always so prompt with replies.
      hrmm.. what do you mean cook it sweet though?
      pardon my :huh:-ness.. haha..
      the only way i ever cooked it was with condensed milk, courtesy of my grandmama... lol and it tasted yucky!

        oh probably cook the oatmeal as it is, with some milk and water and pour some honey on top?

        sugar will be good too!

        i go for the instant packs one by Uncle Toby.
        one pack is sufficient to make me full for hours!

                  I agree with natnatviv, try adding some honey. You can still add some condensed milk to sweeten it, but cook it with fresh milk and just add a few teaspoons of condensed milk maybe. Also try adding some fresh/dried fruits into it.

                    Anyone tried the instant oatmeal? I personally feel that its taste is not as nice as the quick cooking oatmeal though it's very convenient.

                      i think cold storage has those flavoured instant oatmeal porridge. supposed to be quite yummy, friend loves them. they come in blueberry, apricot and hazelnut flavour i think.

                              lumos, just pour the oatmeal, milk and whatever else you want to add and pop into the microwave. How long to cook for depends on the oatmeal you're using, there should be instructions. You can add honey last just before you're about to eat it.
