Pardon me if I'm wrong, but isn't oatmeal a kind of cereal?

(Isn't oatmeal what y'all call porridge? One step short of marine cement?)

Cheese grits are the best, but only when it's real cheese, not the packet kind.

Someone didn't know how to make them (you dislike corn ?). I like them cooked mixed with an egg and maybe some cheese :-)

Porridge is made by boiling oats (normally crushed oats, occasionally oatmeal) or another cereal in water, milk, or both. Crushed oats is not like "rolled oats" that is oatmeal in my book.

They are very similar, but usually 'round here the oatmeal is thinner.

cereal is the best, only the super sweet stuff, coco puffs, fruity pebbles, booberry, those delicious things shaped like little chocolate chip cookies and taste of world domination. delicious.

Based on.... Healthiness: Oatmeal Tastewise: Oatmeal (for me) Easiness of preparation: Cereal (by very little) I eat 2 scrambled eggs, w/o S&P, and a serving of oatmeal every morning. Regular oatmeal, with Equal in it.

*shakes head* thats no way to eat a proper breakfast.

no,no,no. you need eggs, yeah. i make mine cowboy style with salt and pepper. you also want about 3 pieces of ham or bacon. and no oatmeal. i'd go with a grilled cheese. thats how a breakfast should be enjoyed :]

Along with a heap-load of grease. I eat like that every now and then, but I'm trying to be healthier, what with my dad having diabetes now.

Oh, and the eggs and meat are in the same food group: Protein (Which is called meat & beans, but just because they hold most of the protein.)

For some reason, it doesn't seem like I'm having fun having this conversation. Let me add a smiley.

How about this: I add an egg to my oatmeal (not that whimpy fruity flavored stuff). Oats are best if they have been processed the least, so plain old rolled oats that must cook for 5 minutes or so, are best. I tend to put an egg in, a little sprinkle of salt, a slice of low fat cheese, and a tablespoon of Olive oil. That's the start of a good breakfast :-)

Oh sure, they laughed at me when I was younger and would ask for cottage cheese and apples sauce (or apple butter), and now most of the restaurants in my area put that in the salad bar (not because of my influence obviously...LOL) .

Yeah. I usually like most things too, except for hamburger helper. I would rather not eat than eat hamburger helper. If my mom trys to put that on the plate I cook my own dinner and let them eat swill.

Boxes bags and tins suck. Luckily my mom doesn't go to them too often, (If she does, usually I just whip something up myself). Her home creations are always better, except I hate her fried chicken, but I don't have the heart to tell her. My dad was the conniseur of bad cooking (when I lived with him). He swore by the crock pot.

Hmm, I am not particularly fond of deep fried anything anymore....kind of lost the taste for dipping in grease kind of foods. My Mom was a fairly decent cook. Her "bane" was liver. She could turn a slab of liver into a tire patch in minutes. :-) I learned how to make it when I worked for the Millersville University during my Highschool years. I tried to show her but she was kind of set in her ways :-) She made this AWESOME "potpie" (Amish style even though we aren't Amish). I have only ever come across one restaurant that made it even close to as good. Ah the memories :-)

Grease makes everything worse. And if you had that potpie recipe, you should make an 'ible. I've been looking for a good potpie recipe for a while now. None of them seem to be to my liking.

Little time left, what's that supposed to mean? You are only (censored), that still leaves a good 30 years if you eat right and exercise. That includes pot pie.

Eat right.....yeah, gotta start doing that....and what is exercise ? Oh, what I get when I take 5 minutes to walk to work :-) Yeah I need to get up and moving again. The last time I worked at the trap under our kitchen sink, I wondered how the floor got to be so far away from my upper body :-) I was unable to even sit down (the whole way) on a small stool my wife brought :..-.(

yeahh, 'tis true. i actually end up making my own bread from store-bought mixes; i think the taste is better. do you have a Whole Foods in your area? tell your friend to go by and pick up a pack of the 365 brand bread mix, or any of their gluten-free mixes; they're very good. :]

I had a grilled cheese for dinner. Kind of wish I would have thrown some eggs in there too. But of course you have to put salt and pepper into your eggs. And it has to be cooked in butter, screw this Pam stuff. Unless you have bacon grease, in which case use that instead of butter. I'm hungry now...

Do you get home and cry yourself to sleep at night?? I don't think I could eat eggs without S&P. I like the oatmeal part, but Equal?? Try honey.

Can I go with Cream of Wheat? If I had to choose between cereal and oatmeal though, it would have to be oatmeal. But not by much. I love my Cap'n Crunch... But Peaches and Cream beats it out.

On a side note... my grandpa eats oats like cereal. He gets a box of the Quaker oats (not instant), pours some in a bowl, throws in some milk, and eats it.
