Major Flop

Well, the oatmeal DID NOT turn out great for us. In fact, it was so revolting in appearance that I didn't even try it. It was runny, and looked like a bad diaper. Yes, it was that bad.

Here is what we think went wrong:

  • Too much water. I measured out four cups when I intended to try the recipe with only three cups. Then I did not have exactly a full cup of oatmeal and don't think I took out enough water to compensate.
  • Cooked too long. I put the oatmeal on around 10:30 p.m. and we didn't get up until almost 9:00 a.m. Therefore, I think my oats just broke down too much.
Back to the drawing board with this recipe.
