Idk why I'm trying so hard to like oatmeal. It just smells so good, you would think I would?

I guess I'm more of a grits kind of girl after all.
I like oatmeal but it鈥檚 rare I eat it. I really have to be in the mood for it. I also like my oatmeal more loose than stiff, and adding fruit, nuts and even dried fruit is the best when it comes to oatmeal and then I mix some butter in it and top it off with cold milk to help cool it down and sometimes cinnamon.

I love calling it hot cereal to weird people out 馃き

@Stark you make it sound good when you talk about all of the stuff you add to it 馃槀 okay so I just wasn't doing it right 馃 this is why I don't give up on foods
@SailorMarz yessss girl ! The best thing about oatmeal is that it鈥檚 a base/grain similar to rice or anything else like that. You spunk it up and it goes with so much.

Get creative with it. There鈥檚 plenty of recipes for toppings when it comes to oatmeal.
Treat it like a dessert if you have a sweet tooth.

I'm a northerner, I like my daily oatmeal.

I fancy up oatmeal if I eat it and it tastes a lot better than just plain oatmeal. I also make a brown rice porridge and add some goodies to it.

Mmm... oatmeal. I miss oatmeal.

Honestly, though, oatmeal is mostly just a conduit to get butter, sugar and cinnamon in your mouth.

Cook blueberries in it and aadd milk and honey. You'll like it.

I like a bowl of oatmeal. I am less enthusiastic about oatmeal as part of dessert, as in oatmeal cookies.

It's been a long time since I have had grits, as they are not common here in the north, but I do like them.

I love oatmeal. Cream of wheat too. I鈥檝e never had grits though. What鈥檚 the difference?
@Reject grits are more grainy and most people eat it as a savory dish unlike oatmeal and cream of wheat. I think it鈥檚 more similar to cream of wheat than oatmeal grain wise although it鈥檚 a bit more thicker. I like to eat it with cheese mixed in and top with meat and an over easy egg. 馃い

@Reject Grits is cream of wheat if you made cream of wheat with corn.

I have oatmeal for breakfast nearly every day...It's perfect as it's good for you and easily holds me over until lunch time...

Stop eating it dry and I think you will find it more to your liking.
I like the smell too but the texture 馃あ boogers

I like oatmeal every now and then. A little to the thinner side with either bagel or toast spread with butter and honey...

My favored is cream of wheat though. That's the good stuff.

Oatmeal sucks so much. It's like eating paper mache. I seriously can't wrap my head around how people can eat outside of extreme poverty and life threatening situations. It's a mug of hot lumpy sadness and misery.

Farina and grits are much better.

@MethDozer [quote] It's a mug of hot lumpy sadness and misery.[/quote]

when emotions go from being abstract to tangible (but not necessarily edible.)

I have never tried it except oatmeal cookies which are pretty good.

This might be a stupid reason to not bother trying something but the boring packaging just never grabbed my interest.

@SilkenMist oh, it makes fire ass cookies
