steel cut oats

My Beloved went to make oatmeal last week.  I got told the recipe is not here so I am rectifying that error.

I actually like steel cut oats the best.  They cook in a 1 to 4 ratio.  1 oat to 4 water or milk.  I have two favorite ways to make them.

1/2 cup oats

2 cups boiling water

1 pint thermos

Put the oats in the thermos.  Cover with water.  Seal the thermos.  Take out in the morning and reheat.

Now lets be honest, I really never measure the water, I just fill the thermos.  You will need to play with how much water works best for you.  You can make your oats very runny or very thick by just the amount of water you use.

1 cup steel cut oats

4 cups water

Start this the night before.  In a deep pan with a lid, put the oats and water.  Bring to a boil.  Turn off the burner and cover.  Let sit overnight.  Reheat in the morning until they are hot enough for you.  If you wish, you can reheat in a cast iron skillet with some butter and you can have bits of crispies.

This is the really exciting part of today.

This Small Mister turned one today.

He is well loved and full of joy.  Happy Birthday!
