for breakfast, lunch or dinner, oatmeal made my way is the best and probably not the most nutritious. my secret here, is to turn the heat up high before dumping in the oats, i tend to let the oats cook a few seconds before mixing in the water. seems ridiculous, like who cares, right? the oats stay separate from one another and the mix ends up being less mushy and more well, appetizing. like pasta cooked the right way. and pecans. pecans with that perfect sort of smoky flavor. what better way to warm up to the beginning of the end of the year. oatmeal is what i am making while i stay home this week. plus isn't it proven to lower cholesterol?
