Today, we're learning to make oatmeal in an office or makerspace that doesn't have a water heater or stove, but does have a Senseo Coffee machine; 'cause why not?

First, you'll need to gather your supplies:

Instant Oatmeal

Small Disposable Bowls (Winn-Dixie brand used here)


Senseo Coffee Machine

Step 1: Dispurse Oatmeal

Open four packets of instant oatmeal. If you have no oatmeal, simply get in your T.A.R.D.I.S. and go get some.

Place contents of oatmeal packets into a small size bowl. Four fit in here nicely.

It seems that X volume of oatmeal plus Y volume of water equals roughly X volume of wetter oatmeal. Based loosely on this theory, if your oatmeal fits in the bowl with enough room to stir carefully, your oatmeal will continue to fit in the bowl after you add water. Please note, this calculation is based upon utilizing the Senseo Coffee machine as your water applicator, not a garden hose.
