Have we passed the peak hot cereal season?

The other day before I left for work, Court was making some oatmeal in the microwave that smelled so good I could hardly stand it. I still don't know which one that was, but in a later discussion she mentioned that Kashi makes some good oatmeals as well. [For the record we are talking about instant oatmeals. I leave too ding dang early to make *real* oatmeal in the morning... in fact I usually have breakfast at work.]

Anyway, the other day at Whole Foods I bought Kashi GO LEAN Instant Hot Cereal. I just tried it for the first time and I must say I am not impressed. I definitely added too much water, but I also added raisins, and those were the best part. I realize that it's not oatmeal if it has 7 grains and not just oats, but it really just tastes like dusty "health food." I like health and I like food, but I think you know what I mean. I'll probably bring the box to work and keep it as a backup breakfast for those crazy busy days, and I'll use less water next time. Maybe then I'll like it.

  1. have you tried the kashi oatmeal yet? i'm still not sure if it was the hot cereal or the oatmeal that i really liked. i don't know; perhaps, i like them both.
