Gooey oatmeal

I liked oatmeal as a kid

...but I didn't realize how GREAT oatmeal could be when made just right. Maybe I'm different than the rest of you, but I like mine cafeteria-style. That is, really gooey. I can't stand the instant stuff, though. Instant oatmeal comes out close to baby food, IMHO.

For the past few years, I've made old-fashioned whole oats on the stovetop, estimating how much water to boil and then adding a handful of oats. I would just adjust the recipe as it cooked. No problem-O.

Just recently, however, I got pretty lazy, and I dumped in the handful of oats when the water was cold, and I cooked the oats and water simultaneously until the water cooked off and it started to boil (only a few minutes, like normal). It was perfect! Cafeteria-style gooey.

On top of this, if you measure out your oats, they come out even better (and faster since you don't have to adjust!). Here's the recipe:

1 part oatmeal, 2 parts water, dash of salt.

As a last note, I like my oatmeal with soy sauce. You may think I'm crazy, but I think the same about people who eat oatmeal with brown sugar and soy milk. Give it a try, oatmeal and soy sauce. You won't be disappointed
