What It’s Like to Fall in Love with Oatmeal

The first time you try to make oatmeal from scratch (with no help from instant flavored packets) and being unimpressed and not finishing it.

The moment you start to hate yourself for giving up instant flavored packets because the homemade version just doesn’t compete.

But then comes…the first time you make an oatmeal recipe that makes you say, “….Oh, wait…this is actually pretty good!”

And then the first time you make an oatmeal recipe that makes you realize your one true love in life.

The first time you use your favorite oatmeal recipe for emotional support.

The time you return to your favorite instant flavored packet for a bit of nostalgia…only to realize that you now think it tastes like chemicals and glue.

…And then the first time that you start waking up at ridiculous hours, wondering if it’s too early to get up and eat oatmeal.

    Hilarious, I lost it at the man and his bowl of oatmeal. I have eaten oatmeal four times in a day, for four days in a row when I was ill. Like Chandler and Joey. I regret nothing! <3
