Mark Bittman's How to Cook Everything contains my favorite oatmeal formula:
Per every two servings, put this in a saucepan:
2 1/4 cups water
pinch of salt
1 cup rolled oats
Bring to a boil on high heat. Turn the heat down to low and continue cooking and stirring until oatmeal absorbs all the water (but isn't boiled dry, of course). Turn the heat off, put a lid on it, and wait 5 minutes. Add extras and eat.
Today's extras: Goji berries, walnuts, a splash of half-and-half, brown sugar, and a sliver of butter.
Note: I always put in too much brown sugar, then have to add more oatmeal to even it out. My sugar eyes are bigger than my sweet tooth.
