My first out-of-the-recipe cooking experience

For the past few days, Little Andoy has been having asthma attacks accompanied by runny nose and slight fever. It might have been caused by the crazy change in weather. We usually stay in my parents’ house when Little Andoy is sick so my mom and sister can take care of the sick little one while I am in the office.

I love staying at my parents’ place from time to time as I get to bond with my sisters like we used to. The other night, while looking for something to munch on, I saw a bag of oatmeal in their kitchen cabinet. Then I remembered seeing an oatmeal recipe when I was browsing the internet last week. I asked my sister if she wants to try it out and so we did.

I love reading recipes and looking at pictures of food but I very seldom cook. This is a first for me.

1 cup oatmeal
1 ½ cups water

Cooking procedure:
Cook the oatmeal in water. Once cooked, spread the oatmeal evenly in a pan (about 2–3 cm thick). You can add some flavorings and a little sugar, if desired. I dropped a little banana flavoring into the oatmeal mixture and sugar. Let it cool down and put it in the fridge overnight. You can also use left over oatmeal from breakfast.

The next day, take the oatmeal out of the pan and cut into serving size. Fry the oatmeal in butter until brown and crispy. Fry the banana in butter and place on top of the fried oatmeal. Serve.

I did not put fried bananas on my oatmeal because I used the sweetened bananas I found in the fridge which my mom cooked the past weekend

Not bad for a first timer.
