I'm one of those people who really can't stand oatmeal. I mean, the oats themselves are fine, just don't prefer that soggy dish people seem to always make for breakfast. I know it's healthy and all that, but I think it's kind of revolting. Even as a child whenever I had cereal for breakfast, I didn't put milk in it because I hated how mushy it got. (Also my dad would make me drink the milk at the bottom of the bowl and I thought that was disgusting.) So when I make my oatmeal, I like it to crunch. Granola is the happy alternative. This time I used a recipe for peanut butter granola. It uses very little peanut butter, but it's that awesome natural kind (which I think is marvelous). I also added a few raisins in mine. I'm really starting to dig this whole breakfast thing. It has definitely helped me wake up in the morning. I wonder if that's the reason breakfast was invented in the first place? Probably not, but it's a nice thought.
