Oh. My. Word. I am absolutely in love with steel-cut oatmeal! I tried overnight oats with the old-fashioned oats once, and I ended up with a horrid, clumpy mess. I was slow to try it again, but I decided to give it one more chance. I am so very glad I did. This is delicious! The texture is a little different than regular, obviously, but it's just wonderful. I will experiment with other flavors later, but for now, this is my craving. The best part is that I could just put the leftovers in a tupperware bowl in the fridge. Three different mornings this week, I took it back out, scooped some in a bowl, microwaved it, added a little milk, and had a hot breakfast with hardly any effort. So yummy! I never did get a pic, but I'll try to get one when I make it again next time (probably next week, lol).
