Been married 58 years. Hubby like his oatmeal soft and creamy, started
in cold water. I do not. After all this time, I accidentally discovered
an oatmeal we both like. 1/2 cup McCanns + 1 cup of water, in a microwave bowl, for 2 minutes! Couldn't be easier.
Best of all, while it is $5.99 in grocery stores, it is available from Amazon
at only $4.04/16 oz box, with free delivery for 6 boxes. Try one box using
the microwave technique, and you may be hooked also. Enjoy.
Seriously good oatmeal.
