I found it at my local grocery store and Trader Joe's. I will PM you with places you can find it online.

To which the Scot replied, "Ay, that is why you raise fine horses, and we raise fine people."
Michael, the Englishman was Samuel Johnson, who wrote a very famous dictionary in the 18th century. Basically what you quoted was his definition of oats--fed to people in Scotland and to horses in England.

And I thought the pompous Dr. Johnson was just a character in the Blackadder episode, "Dish and Dishonesty"!

Well ... actually I had heard of him before ... but didn't realize this was his deffinition of oats. Thanks for that info.

Now ... I just need the name of the Scot that rebuffed his definition ....

mmm i too love adding dried cranberries in my oatmeal. it adds that tang that i love.

also you could try berries.

I love adding frozen raspberries and blackberries...then when they defrost in the oatmeal their juices turn everything pink and make it all yummy! i also add a sprinkle of cinnamon and nutmeg.

I hav never liked Oatmeal - except in cookies. I am not a horse so why would I want to eat oats? Besides I can never eat more than 3 bites of it before I'm full. I've cooked it for my roomate (about a hundred years ago - she was clueless about cooking) and for my DH who loves it. Would somebody please tell me what is so very GOOD about it" Or is it something you eat just because it's supposed to be good for you? I'm not beimg silly - I would really like to know!

I don't think warm oatmeal is GOOOD, but I like the museli stuff that others on this board recommended. The uncooked cold oatmeal. If you like to have yogurt parfait, you'd like the museli.

We cook porridge with milk and water then put some cold milk and brown sugar on it. My dad cooks his with sultanas so that they fatten up during cooking.

I like the cold oatmeal in my muesli, cookies and cereal/müsli bars.
