peanut butter in liquid form

Historically, I put my morning oatmeal together via:

– 1 cup hot water into cup
– 1/4 tsp of cinnamon into cup, mix
– 1/4 tsp of salt into cup, mix
– 4 packets of splenta into cup, mix
– 1/2 of hodgson mill oatmeal (“hot cereal”) into cup, mix
– a couple of tablespoons of chunky peanut butter into cup, mix

The peanut butter melts from the heat of the oatmeal, and I end up with a breakfast that’s got some chunk of peanut butter in it, but has largely melted through.

This has served me well, but today I wanted to try for something more homogenous, so:

– 1 cup hot water into cup
– a couple of tablespoons of chunky peanut butter into cup, mix until totally melted
– rest of ingredients into cup, mix

It was a more homogenous mix, as you’d expect.  Since it’s chunky peanut butter, though, I still had peanuts in it.

I think I still like the less homogenous version better, but it made for an interesting change-up.

This is the excitement and wonder that is my life.  Phear me.
