Cook it longer, it'll taste better.

Here's the deal.
I went to the commissary Friday and bought some instant oatmeal to have for a snack when I wake up at 2 o'clock in the morning instead of grits.
Well, I didn't like it at all.
It tasted powdery and yucky.
I tried it twice and was very disappointed.
I was going to just toss it.
Well, hubby took the trash today and I didn't put the oatmeal in the trash to throw away.
And when I got home, I started thinking about it.
Maybe....maybe I just wasn't cooking it long enough in the microwave.
So, I mixed some up and stuck it in the microwave for 90 seconds instead of just one minute.
And I let it sit for a minute or two before I tried it.
And guess what??
My oatmeal was fine.
It tasted good.
So now I have a snack for 2 in the morning.
I'm glad I didn't throw it out.
