Two Recipes

Badger’s Morning Oatmeal, Mommy-Style

Put 1/4 cup old-fashioned oats in large, microwave-safe bowl. Add 1/2 cup water.  Microwave on high for 3 minutes.  Stir in 1-2 teaspoons of unsalted butter and allow to melt.

Meanwhile, place 8-12 frozen blueberries in serving bowl.  After butter is melted, pour oatmeal over blueberries and allow blueberries to cool oatmeal to an acceptable temperature.  Elapsed time: approximately 5 minutes.

Serve to Badger, who picks out the blueberries and declares herself “all done”.  Elapsed time: approximately 3 minutes.  Waste: one bowl of oatmeal.

Badger’s Morning Oatmeal, Assistant Chef Badger-Style

Use the 1/4 cup measure to scoop 4-8 flakes of oatmeal into a large, microwave-safe bowl.  Repeat about three dozen times.  Pour 1/2 cup of water mostly into bowl; allow some to spill on counter.  Declare the oatmeal finished and proceed to eat most of it in this state despite the concern of onlookers; pronounce it “nummy delicious” several times.  Allow Mommy to place remains in microwave.  Push “2” button after first asking “this one?” about all the other buttons and giggling.

Pour 2-3 dozen frozen blueberries into serving bowl.  Eat most of them frozen (with spoon).  Allow Mommy to pour remaining 2-3 tablespoons of oatmeal over remaining dozen  blueberries and stir.

Eat every last bit of it and insist on more; follow Mommy-Style recipe, eat one bite and declare yourself all done.  Elapsed time: approximately 45 minutes.  Waste: one bowl of oatmeal, with blueberries.
