I hate oatmeal. I think as a baby, this probably what my mom served me every day, I don't know. I know people in colder climates, want nothing more than a piping hot bowl of wallpaper paste, (this is how I looked at it anyway.). So let me tell you what I bought at my local Costco...
What did I get myself into?!!!! AAACK! This box is a 10 lb box, heaven help me. My Grandma called me at Costco, and I was being nice and asked if she needed anything. She needed oatmeal. And I did not want to shop anymore than this. Costco is enough. So...I picked this up and thought, oh I'll just share with her. Little did I know my portion is a 5lb bag. Oh. My. Gosh. But I made a oatmeal dish, and guess what? I actually like it. But, it makes an amt for a 9x13 pan. I will be sharing... because its the right thing to do. ;)
