It's time to talk about oatmeal

I decided to do this post while I was out on my tramping trip.  I think one reason is because I had oatmeal everyday for breakfast, and to be honest - loved it!!  Now my parents are going to be pretty shocked at this post because as a child I hated oatmeal (I was a picky child).  But what I realized as an adult is that oatmeal is just a vehicle for other delicious things.  Here are a list of toppings:

-nuts (almonds, walnuts, sunflower seeds, etc)
-peanut butter
-maple syrup
-dried fruit (apples, apricots, raisins, pears etc)
-spices (cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, etc)
-milk (or cream? yum)
-berries (blackberries, raspberries, strawberries, etc)
-chocolate chips or chunks 
-did I miss anything?

On my recent trip my oatmeal toppings included: almonds, sugar, powdered milk, dried apricots, peanut butter, and raisins.  It was so warm and delicious every morning, yum!!
And it looks like I need to invest in the titanium spork :(

I like it made with applesauce instead of water too.
