Yeh, I think that Cyclo will agree that otameal needs some "TOOTH" to be good. My mom used to cook oat meal and Karima wheat for like a month until it was a glue and not a food group. My dad put a stop to it casue he hated it cooked that way also. My wife taught me how to make good toothsome oatmeal with the "pouring the boiling water" over the groats and let em soak it in .
Every now and then I'll make a REAL thick batch of oatmeal, spice it up nice, and then... slather some chunky peanut butter on top.
On days where I have a lot of outside work to do, that's usually what I eat for breakfast. Oatmeal and peanut butter. At lunch I'm hardly even hungry.
