I have made an important discovery. Remember this?
Just so you know, this is why:
It's all in the fine print my friend, the fine print. Oh yes, look closer. It's the new versus the old.
I noticed this the last time I went to the grocery store. If only I would have seen "minute oats" in the recipe. You know people, I remember a time when oatmeal was just oatmeal. There was no Easy Mac in those days. We had to boil our noodles, thank you very much. Ok, just kidding on the oatmeal. I really don't remember a time when oatmeal didn't come in individual instant microwave packets.
BUT, I certainly did live through the Pre-Easy Mac Era, for the record.
This is what I get for being old-fashioned I guess: a giant, pan-adhering oatmeal cookie.
