Perhaps as a child I placed it in the category of rice pudding, which I disliked.
Now we have oatmeal for breakfast often. For two my husband makes one cup oats, 1 3/4 cups milk. Stir about seven minutes. At the beginning I add a pinch of cinnamon and salt. Perhaps at the end I add a bit of honey. It all depends upon the day.
When it’s ready I pour it into these great French onion soup bowls with special Japanese ceramic spoons. I add a dollop of Greek non-fat vanilla yogurt on top and whatever berries I have on hand. Good to go.
Teach your children well, said CSNY back in the day. I say feed your family well, and teach everyone. Dee
