National Oatmeal Day

Today is National Oatmeal Day! It is not, however, National Oatmeal Cookie Day (April 30) or National Oatmeal Nut Waffles Day (March 11) or even National Oatmeal Month (January), which means we can't cheat the system by making oatmeal cookies or oatmeal crumb topping. Nope. We actually have to make oatmeal.

How to Make Oatmeal That Doesn't Taste Like Ground Up Senior Citizens

Start by boiling 1 1/3 cups water.

Add 3/4 cup oatmeal. Turn down the heat (because your stove kind of smells like barbeque sauce because your roommate spilled who knows what on the burner) and cook for 7-ish minutes until most of the water is gone.

Put your oatmeal in a bowl.

Add 2 tbs milk.

Add 1/2 tbs brown sugar (because the internet is watching and you can't add 1/4 cup).

Get tired of measuring and throw six shakes of cinnamon on top, then a shake of nutmeg just to mix things up a little.

Stir it all up and enjoy your mostly healthy breakfast!

Happy National Oatmeal Day!
