Every morning like clockwork, I wake up and cook breakfast for my mom: oatmeal and a sausage patty. The sausage is for protein and the oatmeal is so she can take her plethora of pills a bit more easily.
Nothing much is easy for her these days.
She prefers the quick oats, but I prefer the 20 minute steel cut variety. My wife likes the instant packets and my kid hates oatmeal all together.
We are a house divided.
We always had the Quaker Apples & Cinnamon flavor when I was a kid… with those little micro communion wafer things that were allegedly dehydrated bits of apple. I was never fully convinced.
