I'm trying to eat healthy, so it's mostly granola with yogurt for breakfast.  I'm eating lots of apples right now, since they are in season.  Michigan Gala and Golden Delicious have been very tasty.  

I love pears but I don't seem to have good luck with them.  There is such a fine line between being too hard and under-ripe and being too ripe and mealy.  I seldom can catch that perfect window of opportunity.

Chocolate chip oatmeal cookies?

Comment by Pat on November 12, 2014 at 3:23pm

Felaine, I haven't had the stuff in over a couple of years. But, like Loren, I do like oatmeal cookies, and I make a homemade granola which calls for rolled oats, almonds, cashews, coconut, and dried fruit. The granola and yogurt is a great combination.

However, I still have a can of steel cut oats that I hate to waste, but have no idea what the heck I'm going to do with them.

Carl and Loren, YESSSSS! 

Pat, if you don't like oatmeal, don't eat it! 

(Sometimes, I used to room with a girl who would order scrambled eggs "well done" every day for breakfast.  I asked her why, cuz they were NASTY, and she obviously didn't enjoy eating  them.  She said they were supposed to be healthy.  I just looked at her....)

Ooooooo, corned beef hash ... with a poached egg on top!!!  NIRVANA!!!

Comment by The Flying Atheist on November 12, 2014 at 2:50pm

Pat, I'm a bit like you.  I've never really liked oatmeal either.  For breakfast, give me eggs, hash browns, bacon and corned beef hash.  And fresh fruit to make it healthy.

Oatmeal I can do without ... but Oatmeal-Raisin cookies?!?  NO FREAKIN' WAY!!!!

Comment by Pat on November 12, 2014 at 2:38pm

Now matter how hard I try, and no matter what variation of oats I use, I just get can't get myself to like oatmeal. I've done Quaker Rolled Oats, Instant Oats, Instant Oats in a convenient pack with your favorite artificial berry or maple flavoring. I even got a can of McCann's Irish Steel Cut Oats and made them according to directions, with actual Vermont Maple Syrup. I know it's a fantastic food, and every time I read the nutrition label, I think, "Pat, you really need to start making a steady diet of this stuff." Then I take one bite, and I fear reverse peristalsis.

I'll help with your challenge Randy!

Comment by Randall Smith on November 12, 2014 at 7:33am

I spiced up my hot oat meal this morning with pumpkin and mulberries (w/ cinnamon and br. sugar). I love to experiment. Very good. Half my 15 cu ft freezer is filled with berries--straw, black, mul,  rasp (red and black), and blue. It'll be a challenge to eat them all!
