Just in the Nick of Time

I’ve been a little busy this week and with Derek out of town, I just didn’t feel compelled to cook anything. But, in the spirit of Good Food Friday, I decided I should post a couple of recipes I always have in my back pocket.

This first one is an oldie but goodie and is Harvey sibling original. While I don’t remember the details of its genesis, I imagine it was created one hungry Saturday afternoon while our parents were out running errands. So, without further ado, let me present to you:

Oatmeal Glop
1 blue or red 70s era Texas tumbler
Quick cooking oatmeal

Fill cup with oatmeal. Scoop several spoonfuls of sugar into oatmeal filled cup. Add milk and let sit for just a moment to let the milk soak into the oatmeal, then add more milk and stir – repeat until desired consistency and enjoy! For a more sophisticated palate, try adding a little cinnamon and nutmeg.

The second recipe is a little newer, and in my opinion a little grosser; I quite like it. It was introduced to me a couple of years ago by a close friend we’ll call “Derek”.

Derek’s Toaster Gross

1 toaster
Small flour tortillas
Kraft cheese singles

Peel one cheese single from the wrapper and place in flour tortilla. Fold in half and place in toaster. Cook until toasty and melty. It tastes great (as long as you have pretty low expectations) and it doesn’t dirty any dishes. The perfect “I’m wearing sweats, I’ve given up on life, give me a processed toaster meal” meal. It’s also great for single guys.

And there you have it, another Good Food Friday.

I had oatmeal glop one lonely day in December and it was delicious. Kraft singles on the other hand, make me dry heave.

I made it on my Mission. We were out of money, food, and the stove didn't work very well. All we had was the makings for toaster gross and a toaster. It is by no means good, but it's amazing how innovative you can be when your back is against the wall.

don't worry, when ever I make oatmeal glop I always make it in those tumblers you gave us, too bad they are clear.

Mmm, sometimes I just really crave processed cheese slices...
