I am obsessed with oatmeal.

I haven't always been obsessed with oatmeal. But over the past few weeks, oatmeal is pretty much my life.

Not the kind in a serving-size packet to which you add water and stick it in the microwave. I'm talking the real stuff. Comes in that cylindrical container and cooks for a whole five minutes on the stove.

The best part is that I've been obsessed with the oatmeal . . . for dinner. I've eaten it almost every night for almost three weeks.

I can't explain why. I have no idea. I just know that even though it's been summer and super hot, I have to have my oatmeal for dinner.

A couple of nights ago, I decided that I needed something new. Not because I was tired of the oatmeal, but because it might be a little bit weird that I'm eating so much oatmeal without getting tired of it. Even though that's the way I tend to roll. I will eat something everyday for, like, ever, and then one day I pretty much don't want it ever again.

So, a couple of nights ago I had hot dogs for dinner. I also really love hot dogs. So, this was a good change.

But, last night it was back to oatmeal.

Tonight? Hot dogs.

But I'm kinda sad that I didn't have oatmeal.

Don't judge me.

I don't judge you. Ok, if you mixed the hot dogs into your oatmeal.....then I might judge you. Good news is - your cholesterol should be dropping thanks to all the oatmeal.

I eat oatmeal every morning for breakfast. Although I've found that 2:08 in the microwave cooks it quite nicely, too. Shhhh!

And have you thought about broadening what you eat with your oatmeal? One night blueberries on top, another night a touch of brown sugar, another night craisins. And if you could taste test Ovaltine oatmeal for me, I'd be grateful. The idea struck me tonight while getting Mister Man's milk ready, but I'm not quite brave enough to do it myself!
