i love the oatmeal , i actually look forward to having it each morning, i don't use milk for anything during day so i have 50ml of skimmed milk then the rest water and that little bit of milk makes it so yummy, when i see my oatmeal packs get low i panic! (oh god help me i have oatmeal obsession) bt as the others have said each to their own some people really dislike it.
I like the porridge but I prefer my oatmeal made into a cinnamon/oatmeal cookie. Mix cinnamon into the oatmeal and stir in a couple of teaspoons of water, and dollop onto a plate (you can shape it into a round and rough up the top with a fork) and cook in the microwave about two minutes. If you do this, make sure you drink plenty of liquid with it though, as it's quite solid - but it does give you something substantial to chew on!
Funnily enough, I've just tried them with a bit of cinnamon and sweeter then popped them in the oven until they were like a nice sweet doughy bread. Just finished them off warm with a nice cup of tea. Very nice and quite filling.
