Oatmeal





This is why I don't like oatmeal! It ALWAYS explodes on me! Maybe I should go back to the pre-packaged stuff for the kids! I've been giving oatmeal to Thad and mixing in some cooked apples. And well... I didn't put it in the microwave for as long as it called for. I opened the microwave and was UGH!!!! Curt said, what happened? I said well, the oatmeal exploded on me AGAIN!!!!!!! Not as bad as when I tried to make Steel Cut Oats in there, but still!!! (let me tell you, holy cow, that stuff literally went EVERYWHERE!!!! There was soo much water in the microwave... Steel cut oats, yeah...)
You are probably saying why doesn't she just stand there for the less than 3 minutes to watch it? Well, funny you should think that, all I'm gonna say is, 4 kids! And I will leave it at that! I am sure you can imagine what can happen with 4 kids in under 3 minutes! :)
So I am thinking that is why I don't like that slimy gooey stuff! :)
But the kids and Curt do, so I'll keep trying to make it for them! I do the steel cut oats in the crock pot over nite, guess I better do that tonite for Thad!
