In Response to Re: This is technically UNHEALTHY COOKING, but I couldn't resist!:
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.
