Normally when I am on a trip I pack breakfast foods since I am a cereal or oatmeal girl not really eggs or restaurant breakfasts.
When I pack oatmeal I make hot water with the coffee maker and mix it with oatmeal packets.
When I pack cereal I buy a non-fat milk from Starbucks (or wherever) and pour the cereal right into the cup.
I packed cereal since it had been so warm I thought it would be fine. Well, it was freezing in the morning in Paso Robles! So, I decided to ditch the cold cereal and tried the oatmeal from Starbucks.
Starbucks oatmeal comes in a cute little papper cup. They offer 3 toppings: brown sugar, nuts and dried fruit. I chose all 3.
I think the oatmeal was too watery and not creamy at all. I make my oatmeal with half milk (or milk sub) and half water and a sliced up naner – it is so much creamier that way. This, in comparison, is a disappointment. I didn’t like this oatmeal at all – even with all the toppings mixed in. Cindy likes it, but she doesn’t know good oatmeal. Cin, come over my place and I’ll make you some of the good stuff!
