What do you like in your oatmeal?

I know I've told you about the madhouse that is my life now that College Football is in full swing...and because of that, I find the days just speeding by and keep thinking I'm not going to get everything done that needs being done! About a month ago, the gals over at The KrAzY KiTcHeN asked me if I'd like to be a part of their weekly (foodie) meme exploits. If you know me, you know I have a hard time saying no. So, I said yes. Apparently I like that feeling of utter insanity. KrAzY KiTcHeN is host to a different meme each day... ~Simple Saturdays are hosted by yours truly ~Simply Delicious Sundays (& Kitchen Wishes) are hosted by Tamy of 3 Sides of Crazy ~Monday Munchies are hosted by Martha of Menagerie ~Tuesdays Cultural Connections are hosted by Pacey ~Wednesday is Save room for Dessert hosted by Joy from Joy of Desserts ~Thursdays Soup, Salad, Casseroles & More is currently between hosts ~Friday's What did you Bake Today? is hosted by Kristen of Frugal Antics of a Harried Homemaker You play along with a meme by linking up a post on your blog (via a linky-thingy) at the end of each post. You don't have to email anybody any information or pictures, simply add your name (w/ name of what you made, if you wish) and the permalink to a specific post and that is it! For example, if you visit me there on a Simple Saturday to see what I've shared and then think Hey, I made a simple recipe this week, just add a link and other people who come to find a simple meal can easily find there way to your site! And a link to where you can be found on your website is always appreciated. Today, I'll be talking about this Chocolate Oatmeal.... ...won't you come pay me a visit...and link up a simple recipe? See...I totally related this post back to its title. Basically. Simply click HERE to visit me at the KrAzY KiTcHeN and see what went in to this decadent bowl of oats (...and share a recipe or two while you're there)!

Chocolate Oatmeal yield ~2-4 svgs. adapted from a recipe by MonsterMama 1 1/2 c. Rolled Oats 1/4 c. Vanilla Sugar 1/4 c.

Add oats and sea salt and lower heat to a gentle simmer until the oats are tender, ~5 minutes. Turn off heat and stir in milk. Serve with extra milk, vanilla sugar and Espresso Brava Sea Salt for garnish, if wanted.
