Have you all noticed that I am doing NaBloPoMo again, for the 4th year in a row? After posting every day in July, and being told that quantity does not equal quality, I have been trying harder to be interesting and funny this month. SO interesting, that I already had to delete an entire post due to the fact that it was about oatmeal, and was very boring. You know the phrase, “You had me at hello?” Well, I had the opposite feeling about my post. It was like, “You lost me at: is making steel cut oats with all milk instead of water too decadent?”*** Oatmeal and decadent do not belong in the same sentence.
Then, I forgot I had deleted the post, and when Dave was making his oatmeal today without measuring anything I was like, “Yup – that’s what I was talking about. Playing fast and loose you with your oatmeal.” Dave just looked at me. I sobbed and said, “No one reads my blog anymore. Not even you. Boo hoo hoo hoo.”
Then I remembered that I deleted that post and I said, “Never mind. It’s just weird to me that you don’t measure anything. Isn’t it always too dry or too watery?” (and by “watery” I mean “milky”.) Dave said, “No, Goldilocks, it isn’t.”
See what I did there? I turned a boring post about oatmeal into something mildly interesting.
*** But can you make steel cut oats with all milk? I think I don’t like steel cut oats as much because I make my rolled oats with milk. Steel cut oats recipes are all mostly water with some cream or buttermilk and they taste watery. GAH. I can’t stop myself from talking about oats. And trolling for comments.
