Oh and one other thing...

I've been making myself this awesome steel-cut Irish oatmeal for breakfast.  My diet says to eat oatmeal, so I have been.  I add two tablespoons of wheat germ (which isn't as bad as I thought it would be), raisins, cut up dried apricots, chopped pecans, 2 Equals, a little bit of milk, cinnamon and a tablespoon of real maple syrup.  This is some seriously yummy stuff but it takes a half hour to cook the oats.  Under normal circumstances, it's totally worth it and I don't mind the wait.  This morning I was behind schedule and feeling crummy so I took out two packets of instant Weight Control oaltmeal from Quaker.  

This stuff sucked SO BAD.  Blech! Instead of the firm, nutty-tasting oatmeal I've grown to love, I had this cardboard flavored mush. 

Yuck.   Tomorrow, back to the Irish oats.

Have you tried cooking the oats in the microwave? I've never done it (more of an instant oatmeal girl), but I've been told it can be done.
