    What type oats do you have? There is rolled, quick and steel cut? I also soak mine in milk and use only milk to make my porridge. It is so creamy and tasty that everyone who has mine falls in love with it. :D

    mine's rolled.....wait, aren't all oats rolled?? mine's definately not quick, those turn out mushy, i like my oats a little chewy....

    Eh...i'm not a big dairy fan - milkshakes & ice-cream are exceptions, so no milk in my oats, plz!

    I think the "rolled oats" are also called old-fashioned oats -- the long cooking kind. Then there are quick oats. And then there are the health-food-store kind, steel cut oats.

    I go for quick or even better, instant. :shock: My Mom would be scandalized. But what the heck! She never worked outside the home, so all she had to do in the early morning was make our oatmeal, pack our lunches, then plan her day. I have to do a whole lot more than that. So Quaker brand instant it is. :wink: 8)

    I toss a cup of oats in with my brown rice when I cook it. Lotsa good grain action going on there.

    Speaking of scones a while back, I love them too. Generally only eat them when I'm on vacation. The hotel I always stay at in Seoul has a wonderful bakery in the lobby and my friends & I get scones there & bananas from the market and have nice breakfasts in our room.

    Quick or rolled probbaly si what you have. Not as nutrious as the steel cut version. It actually takes about 6/7 minutes for me as the oast are soaked...otherwise about half an hour.

    I get mine at the co-op. It is available at the bigger grocery store but way too expensive, paying for the packaging. I get mine from teh bulks ection of teh co-op and that's much better. :)
