Please, Sir, I Want Some More

Our wonderful friend Judyshannonstreetwhat (click here) headed back to the State of Washington Tuesday morning.

She left behind my hairdryer (I can't remember where it came from, but I can guarantee I've never used it); a banana (now gone); an apple (also, no longer); an open bag of oatmeal (porridge); and some other odds and ends.

I made myself a 'bowl' of oatmeal this morning.

MAYBE I SHOULD HAVE READ THE INSTRUCTIONS.

  1. Generally one adds some sort of liquid to oatmeal... :)

      I did! How else would it have formed a clump?

      To you, too? Maybe we should start a cooking school.

  3. Mitchell, your oatmeal looks a bit dry....just add some milk and stir it up, throw on some cinnamon and pecans.

      "Just add some" and "throw on some" are very dangerous cooking directions to give to someone like me. I DID add some milk. See what happened?

      I've been recently reading and/or re-reading all of Dickens. So much tragedy. But, trust me, my dish was not delicious. I don't think even Oliver would have asked for more of THAT!

  5. Oh, you guys! Life is just a bowl of oatmeal and visiting cathedrals in Spain. I'm envious!

      Stop by anytime. I'll go cathedral-hopping with you and make you a spoonful of oatmeal paste.

      I just recently re-read the book. Fascinating and so much more tragic (and real) than the musical.

  8. I took my kids to that movie when they were in grade school. They both started crying and we left the movie without seeing the end. Guess it really wasn't intended for little innocent tender-hearted kids. About that oatmeal... maybe you just like it chewy ;-)

      I didn't even try my oatmeal. It was more pasty and clay-like than chewy. I probably should have sculpted something out of it...

      Judy doesn't like instant. But this stuff supposedly only takes four minutes in the microwave. I had to stop it at 2-1/2 when I saw what it looked like. I WILL try again and I WILL succeed.

  10. Tut ! Proper oatmeal (no instant rubbish) is a delight and cleans out the system of nasty every things. Keep practicing.

      I haven't given up. I didn't feel like going to the bother of cooking such a complex breakfast this morning. Maybe I'll try again tomorrow.
