I had a little bit of whipping cream left over and used about 1/4 cup to make my oatmeal this morning. It was so unhealthy, but sooooo good. lol

I will on occasion make my oatmeal with milk.  I only have skim milk in the house so I guess that's not that bad.  I do have a bit of cream in the refrigerator and I have a batch of scones in the freezer.  They will be breakfast tomorrow.  A bit of cream brushed on the top before baking.  the rest of the cream I will make a ganache and toss that in the freezer for when I next need a glaze for a cake or frosting for a cake.  All I need to do is thaw and melt or whip.  I could also make truffle candy but that would just go back in the freezer so I will make that if and when I need it..  I may dip some plastic spoons in some to give to a good friend, she is a coffee drinker and the chocolate spoons are great with coffee. (they are good with hot cocoa as well.)

I just may have to make some oatmeal with cream just to see how indulgent it is..it sounds very decadent.

Nikki, oatmeal with cream is not decadent - it is going back to the way our parents and grandparents had their cereal.  Cream, heavy cream, skimed from the milk in the cooler or straight from the separator.   They all lived well into their eighties and nineties so I figure it couldn't have been too bad.
Of course everything was done by hand basicaly, few power tools for anything so they probably worked it off pretty quick.

We have oatmeal 5 mornings a week.  I buy only organic really thick cut oats as they don't cook into mush.  i won't touch instant oatmeal and only use regular oatmeal for cookies.  The thick cut takes longer to cook, but is worth it.  I put in cinnamon, walnuts and dried cranberries.  When I had them, I used pears from my tree.  I have a few left in the freezer but they'll be gone next week.
On Saturday I make waffles and use oatmeal and whole wheat flour to  make them more healthy.
Sunday we go to Panera's after church and have something decadent.  I usually get a cinnamon crunch bagel.

Verlee, nothing wrong with using up the whipped cream.  I've often used things in my oatmeal that probably aren't considered healthy like chocolate chips lol.  Not something I would do all the time but what the heck, you only live once.

I eat oatmeal 7 days a week & love it!  Once I went on the South Beach diet and the thing I missed most was my oatmeal.  I just sweaten it w/brown sugar.

In Response to Re: This is technically UNHEALTHY COOKING, but I couldn't resist! : You're absolutely right, Gale! And I should know, having grown up on a farm and drinking milk with a layer of cream on the top. But we worked it all off. So now I content myself with cream on my oatmeal once a year!

Verlee,  The layer of cream on the top made the best whipped cream you could ever have. There
is nothing like it. If you had a Jersey or Guernsey cow the cream was even better because the
fat content was higher.  It brings back awesome memories!!  You are right about working it off.
We were all thin. lol lol

We all need a little treat once in a while. After reading everyone's comments, I am sorry I don't have stock in oatmeal! We eat it too since it is supposed to lower your cholesterol.

I love oatmeal cookies with raisins and nuts, I also love a bowl of oatmeal.  Maybe you can think of a bowl of oatmeal with all the fixings as a kind of warm oatmeal cookie?

Yikes --- I just can't believe what you people do with OATMEAL.   Good grief - the only proper way to use that stuff is in a cookie!!

When I was little, my mother had the milk delivered.  Remember those wire baskets with the sections just the right size for the glass bottles?  She'd get homogenized for my sister and me and 1 bottle with the cream on top (for Dad's coffee) and she drank the rest.

I had my oatmeal this morning with Saigon cinnamon. It's more expensive but tastes
awesome.

Jean M.,  I tried to think that oatmeal was a cookie but it was too soft! lol lol
