Oatmeal: First time in 31 years

Real Medleys

For those of you who are like me and think that oatmeal should be reserved for infants and senior citizens who have lost all of their teeth, I am here to tell you that there is hope.

I decided to try oatmeal again because I have been taste-testing my 6-month-old’s cereal before I give it to him to make sure it isn’t too hot, and it wasn’t all that bad. (Pureed green beans are entirely another story.)

I always thought that oatmeal was like a bowl of chewed up food: mushy, pasty and bland. Well, Quaker has come out with Real Medleys, which are little cups of oatmeal with tasty additives. Today, I tried the Apple Walnut Oatmeal and it had pieces of apple, dried cranberries and chopped walnuts in it. I actually chewed most of it. (Shocker.)

So, I may become an oatmeal eater now, if I stick to these Real Medleys. I always hear about the health benefits of oatmeal, so now I am doing something good for my body. Now, if I could only get myself to like tofu … To me, tofu is like little cubes of dish sponge. Nope. Never.
