Oatmeal! – McCann's Irish steel-cut oatmeal is 30% off at Amazon. I eat this stuff nearly every morning. The snap of real oats can't be beat.

    I have to give big ups to the LaCrosse battery charger which, in combination with a handfull of Eneloop batteries keeps my Xbox controllers from making a mockery of my green preferences.

    Quaker Oats FTW! Slathered in peanut butter, its my morning routine…

    What would I gain in a switch to these ‘steel cut’ oats?

  3. elisd says:

    @#9: Steel cut oats are chopped into 3-D chunks instead of rolled flat, so you get a pleasant chewiness out of them.

    Of course, once you’re on steel-cut oats it’s just one step down the slippery slope and you’re eating whole groats. Mmmmmm Groats!

    This steel-cut oatmeal discussion pleases me.

    Stock up in preparation for the econocalypse!

  5. Lonin says:

    Joel, is that because of the girl or because of Eugene? Either way, welcome to the great NW.

  6. Stefan Jones says:

    How long do you cook your steel cut, Joel?

  7. zoink says:

    I’m partial to Bob’s Red Mill Organic Steel Cut, myself.

    Apparently we’ve stumbled upon a heretofore unrecognized geek subculture.


    Steel cut or pinhead oats are sold uncooked. It takes around 20 minutes or so to cook them. The 1 minute or 5 minute stuff is precooked and you’re just warming it up when you ‘cook’ it. It makes a difference. I make mine with a little nutmeg, ginger, cinnamon, powdered defatted butter milk and some raisins.
    It’s extremely high in calories, so if you eat a bunch for breakfast don’t expect to have much of an appetite for lunch.

    Hooray. Welcome back, sir.

  10. Anonymous says:

    Trader Joe’s steel cut oats are every bit as good as McCann’s at half the price!

  11. drtwist says:

    zoink is right, Bob’s Red Mill all the way.

    plus as, an Oregonian(albeit recent) you are obligated to eat it.

    PS: the “Steel cut oats” in the bulk section at your local winco are bob’s red mill. and at $0.89/Lb the price is perfect


    McCann’s = Best Oatmeal Ever. Take that, Scotland.

  13. ZoopyFunk says:

    Totally unrelated thread…

    How is the New Yorker handling Eugene?

  14. crystally says:

    Sometimes it is really very puzzle for us facing to the high tec, for example HD Video Converter.

  15. Joel Johnson says:

    @ZoopyFunk: I’ve only been here for a couple of days, but I’m sort of beside myself with joy at the moment. :)

    The reviews on Amazon for the Sceptre TV are not promising. :(
