i eat my oatmeal straight.
1/2 c. milk
1/3 c. oats
(you know, the kind from the big cylinder canister)
i have it in a mug.
this is crucial.
you can hold your oatmeal by the handle and not burn your hands.
i have tried it in a bowl, but it was too hot on my hands.
i learned it from my old college roomie kat.
i believe it came to be out of the fact that we had no bowls in our dorm room, but still.
