I’ve been on a roll with the oatmeal recipes lately. And that’s no small feat since I never used to care for oatmeal that much. It was always one of those foods where I would “think” that I liked it, especially after smelling the aroma from a package of instant oats. But once I would pop the oats in the microwave, I was done after about three bites. No joke. And then I would quickly remember that the smell of oatmeal is much more appealing to me than the taste.
