    Retire, I'm curious how you make oatmeal for the week? Seems to me it would get pretty solid in the fridge--do you store it in one big bowl, in individual bowls? Do you adjust the amount of water used, when cooking it ahead?

    I follow the package instructions and cook it on the stove, then put it in one bowl. It's solid so then I slice it into 6 pieces like pie and put one piece in a bowl and microwave for 3 min. Then I add my cinnamon, nuts, syrup and milk. Tastes just like cooking it from scratch. I do have to stir it a little once I add the milk etc. But it saves so much time and dishes to do it once. I find that cooking oatmeal in the microwave can be messy, it seems to alway spill over the edge no matter what size bowl I use, so this method works the best for me.
