I do remember John Tesh proclaiming from his radio show that you should add a spoonful of peanut butter to your oatmeal for the protein. Check. Nevermind that peanut butter probably doesn't go with all flavors of oatmeal - like banana nut bread.
I also know that the DPS highly discourages eating in the car, much less eating oatmeal in the car.
And, the cold part. Well, I guess that's all me and my busy, get-the-kids-to-school-on-time, mad woman routine in the mornings. By the time I get to it, it's cold.
And, as long as it's cold, I might as well not rush to scarf it down. A bite here and there will do, usually finishing the last of it just before lunch.
You know, even I can admit, that's pretty gross. Though, the repulsion on my out-of-town family's faces when they see me interacting with my oatmeal makes me know that things have gotten really bad.
But, I do know this: I go to bed at night excited about oatmeal in the morning... and midmorning... and afternoon. Oatmeal, my life would s**k without you.
