Cooking at Home #2- Using what you already have

This week, I made apple and cinnamon oatmeal. I found some oatmeal in my pantry and some apples in the fridge so I decided to just cut up some apple, put some cinnamon and sugar in it and just cook it along with the oatmeal with some more cinnamon and sugar.

This recipe went really well for me. The apples were sliced evenly to the perfect size and the cinnamon and sugar was coated evenly with it too. I first cooked the apples in the pot so it would soften. Next, I put some milk in another pot and water for the bubbling sound. When I heard it bubble, I put the oatmeal in, along with some cinnamon and sugar. I waited until the oatmeal soaked up the milk, then I added the precooked apples that was coated with cinnamon and sugar. It smelled really cinnamon-y when I took it out. The texture of the oatmeal was not too wet of dry. It was a bit gooey and it taste amazing.

I did not find a recipe online for this lab. I just eyeballed everything and hope for the best. I wished that I put just a bit more sugar in it, but it still taste good.

If I were to make this dish again, I would definitely add a bit more sugar. Other than that I thought that it turned out to be an amazing dish knowing that I did not use a recipe.

Challenges I have overcame was trying to measure out the amount of oatmeal I needed, and the amount of milk I needed and the amount of milk. To overcome these obstacles I decided to not put that much milk at first and just add more as I go so I can get it to the consistency I wanted it to be.

I thought that the greatest success in this dish was the preparation. Setting everything up what’s very easy, as well as cooking the dish. I believe that the final produce would have been better if I made the presentation neater.

I am most proud of my time management in this experience. I am usually not good with managing my time, but in this lab my time management was great.

I would definitely make this this again, because it’s very easy to make, and you don’t need a lot of ingredients to make this as well. it is also a great recipe to make when you were in a hurry to get somewhere because it does not take a lot of time at all.
