3. Gaby - July 5, 2008

Hey! I don’t have a blog, though I should because I love cooking, taking pictures of my food, and then eating it. I just had to tell you that I love your blog and LOVE LOVE LOVE oatmeal. And I also love all your crazy combinations and happen to share many of the same food favorites as you. I get made fun of all the time by friends. I thought I was the only one with odd taste in food! I’ve gotten tons of great ideas from you, so keep up the good fooding!

Try this: whole wheat tortilla, peanut butter, uncooked oatmeal, flax seeds and roll it up. It’s very healthy but pretty pasty. Any suggestions to juice it up so it doesn’t go down like a brick?

Gaby

And I bet your friends are just jealous of your creativity and awesomeness :mrgreen:

David
Ooo that combo actually sounds pretty good–maybe you can add some milk or yogurt to the mixture to thin it down a little?

Hello, fellow oatmeal lover!! 😀
I don’t know about you, but sometimes when I have a craving for something chewy, I just grab a few punchfuls of raw oats and much away! I actually just posted an oatmeal recipe on my blog–you’ll have to check it out!

Looks great!Ever heard of brose?

18. Alan - May 2, 2009

Brose
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search
Brose is a Scots word for a dish of oatmeal mixed with water or milk, and eaten with salt and butter. Unlike porridge, brose is not cooked (Davidson 1999).

In the Sixteenth Century, a mixture of oatmeal and water was carried by shepherds; brose resulted from the agitation of the mixture as they climbed the hills (Hartley 1954). Modern recipes call for boiling water or milk to be mixed into the meal.

Brose could also be made with barley meal, peasemeal, or a mixture of different meals. Other ingredients, such as nettle tops, kale, and swede may be added to the basic brose (Davidson op.cit.).

Atholl brose is an alcoholic variation.

19. Alan - May 2, 2009

Brose uses scottish oatmeal .
US Canadian oatmeal cannott be used in its place to make brose.

22. AK - April 5, 2010

my birthday is on march 29th and i luv doing interesting things with food… although it is not oatmeal related, I recommend you trying mixing yogurt and milk or honeydew and avocado. Apple and cheese or englishbreakfast tea and hot chocolate combos are good too!

oatmeal - April 6, 2010

I recently tried apple & cheese and LOVED it!
The yogurt and avocado thing sounds very intriguing 😀 Thanks for the suggestions!

23. danica - April 27, 2010

Hey hey! I noticed the Queens logo in one of your pics. Do you go there? I’m at Western! This is so exciting to find a food blogger who doesnt live a million miles away somewhere in the States!

oatmeal - June 17, 2010

Yeah I go/went to Queen’s! Although I’ve graduated this June–so awesome to find another Canadian blogger 😀
