I always enjoy a bowl of porridge at the weekend - made in a pan on the stove with milk and topped off with sugar - half a cup of oats and a full cup of milk. Milk soaks into the oats, I stir for around 7 mins and tadah - perfect porridge.
Over the weekend I bought one of these new-fangled microwave things with the idea that I could have porridge before work - usual, half cup of oats, full cup of milk, in a bowl, stir, place in microwave on full power for 5mins............exploded porridge everywhere:(
Yesterday morning, much more cautious, 3 x 1.5mins on full power stirring in between, ended up with hard oats that hadn't expanded and not soaked up the milk
This morning - tried to find a middle ground - porridge all over the microwave again
WHHHYYYYYYYY????? <shaking fist at the sky>
So, what do I do?
