Ignore the bedhead, eat the steel-cut oatmeal

Steel-Cut Oatmeal with RaisinsWhether she’s stuffing a box of crayons in her onesie or blowing raspberries at the cat, our daughter knows how to keep things interesting.

But let’s be honest, this isn’t unique to Chipper Daughter.  Little kids are busy exploring a world that’s brand new to them, pushing boundaries and expanding their minds, and making their parents dance in the process. So it’s easy to forget things like, say, a pot full of oatmeal on the stove. If I’m not burning it, it’s bubbling up over the stovetop and spreading its gooey goodness into every nook and cranny. Not exactly how I want to spend my weekend mornings, cleaning up oatmeal.

Pressure cookers fix that.
