MY DAY: Oatmeal: Soupy or Solidy


A while back, my cousin, the very wise Dewey Smith, posted a clever comment on Facebook regarding the liquid consistency of oatmeal.  Should if contain less, or more water/milk.

I am quite fond of peaches and cream oatmeal.

However, when I prepare my oatmeal, I am now always critical of:

How much boiling water?

How much milk?

More water?

Less water?

More milk?

Less milk?

Do I wish to spoon it?

Do I wish to drink it?

I generally like to glide into my morning.  However, there is no ease when I am confronted with this never ending oatmeal option that harangues me in those crucial moments of adding the liquids.

Still, I push forward, with Cousin Dewey’s lament ringing in my ear (I’m mostly deaf in my right ear), hoping I might achieve the perfect consistency.

This morning, by golly, I did it!

Peaches and cream have become Darin’s delight!
