I am a big fan of oatmeal

There is an ongoing joke in my family about one of our family members who lived to almost 100 because "she ate oatmeal every morning". I grew up eating Quaker Oats and have always been happy with it - even the instant packets. Several years ago, I learned about steel-cut oats and was hooked immediately! I discovered McCann's Irish Oatmeal and love everything about it - especially the round can. But, it takes forever to cook...I mean forever! I was very excited to find that Trader Joe's carries frozen steel-cut oatmeal. I tried it recently and was quite pleased with it. I will tell you that it is not as good as the slow cooking oats, but it is a good alternative for the days when you don't have an hour to kill.

As a fellow oatmeal addict and recent ly converted devotee of Trader Joe's I am grateful for this post.
