Milo Oatmeal

One day, Mike asked me to cook oatmeal for him.
Was I surprised???? You betcha!!!

Well, so I thought of making Mango Oatmeal , since I have mangoes in the fridge.
But when I peeled the mango, the flesh was grey...
So, I peeled another one... grey
I have no more mangoes.

I was afraid that he won't eat it plain so I put in some 3in1 Milo to jazz it up a bit, few drops of vanilla too.
And I garnished it with a heart shape made of milk powder (my kid's milk formula, kekeke)

Did he eat it??? Yeah he did, all of it. And you know what he said after he finished up the whole thing.
" You can do it plain next time. Actually grandma used to cook this for me when I was a kid, but I never knew it was oatmeal. "


Now, time to do wash the pot and bowl... Duh!!!!!


  1. So funny :)

    I just had oatmeal for breakfast today, but I added in grounded black sesame powder and flaxseed. Should try putting in some milo in future :)

  2. Ha ha, so cute. Guess got to get myself to eat oatmeal nowadays. Healthy.

  3. was real funny.

    Thanks for sharing the story with us. :)

  4. Wah.... Milo I like! Oatmeal I heart! Super idea to combine these 2...funny I never thought of it since I makan roll oats everyday. Suddenly I have this dinosaur Milo oatmeal, lol!! Thanks for the great idea!!

  5. nileey,
    I hope u like it with milo, don't forget milk if you're not using 3 in 1.

    Belly Good Cooking,
    It's not hard to eat oatmeal, just don't cook it too thick, use half water half milk and drop in fresh fruits.

    You can refer to my Mango Oatmeal for the recipe, to get my proportions, but basically, just cook oatmeal the way you like it and flavour it with Milo

    It was a tight slap on the forehead when he told me that, ahahahah!!!

    Dinosaur oatmeal??? U mean, make a dino shape like my heart? Can put in anything with oatmeal, as long as u like it.

  6. Hahaha, Thanks for sharing this cute story.Have a nice weekend ahead.

  7. Hahaha...he's not fussy at all right? How I wish JH can eat oatmeal like that...
    If I put in Milo, immediately his brain will pop out: "very heaty". What to do? He's oredi programmed this way for more than 30 years...

  8. I have plain oatmeal every morning and I think it's still acceptable for me, but adding in Milo will be much better, hehe.

  9. Wah, romantic breakfast....he he he

  10. aww made with love, who would say no?!

  11. Sonia,
    Glad u enjoyed it, ahaha!!

    Haiya, once a while ma, I always tell myself this, not that I make him eat this everyday.
    If he say heaty, then feed him gwai ling gou after that :)

    If can take plain, of course plain will be better. But some ppl cannot tahan plain.
    I prefer mine with milk and fruits.

    It was dinner, ahahah!!!

    hehehe, he is actually immune to such gestures.

  12. haha.. this is funny :D thanks for sharing the story ya.. nice post :)

  13. CHVoon,
    Deco nice only ah?
    Eh, make this for ur wife ler :)

  14. HAHAHA! From the first time I met him, I could tell he is a man with good sense of humor and a memorable style of talking. LOL!

    And ya know what, you just spoke Minnesotan!!! "You betcha!" is Minnesotan!!

    I eat oatmeal made with rolled oats every day, almost, at work. (No quick nor instant oats for me.) It's always Milo or Neslo oatmeal!!! YUMMMY! (Just trying to utilize the Milo and Nescafe provided at work also ...)

  15. Pei-Lin,
    I learnt the betcha from watching TV woh... not from my Minnesotan Physics teacher.
    I'm still very Asian, prefering quick cooking oats :) kekeke

  16. I am so loving the heart shape on the oatmeal! Milo oatmeal sounds good. I think your husband is lucky to have you!

  17. crustabakes,
