It's the first week of my second year of grad school and I have to admit I am not feeling ready. Mostly I'm bummed about four continuous months of only having enough time to do the bare minimum in the kitchen. Quick breakfasts, lunches that will survive several hours in a backpack and late-night dinners that don't involve a lot of fuss — my cooking now sounds like headlines from a women's magazine.
But maybe with kids or a long commute or a demanding job, you're right there with me. If so, you understand the appeal of frozen, single-serve oatmeal. These handy little pucks of cooked oatmeal have all the mix-ins frozen right into them, so they are easy to heat up quickly or grab on your way out the door and warm up at work or school.
