Nothing silly about oatmeal, I love it.
Ironically after reading these posts, the next day I got my flyer from Trader Joe's. Don't know if you guys have access to TJ's, but they are now advertising they're great new product of frozen steel-cut oats. (cooked and then frozen)
Perfect for that in-a-rush morning when you want comfort, but not 40 minutes of stirring.
I personally am addicted to Arrowhead Mills brand "4 grain Plus Flax" it only takes about 10 minutes and has cracked wheat, steel cut oats, rye and barley grits, and flax seed. YUMMY!
