My budget has significantly limited my cooking hobby. It makes me a little sad, but I figure I am spending my money on better things (like trips to San Diego!!).
The other day I did purchase Irish Oatmeal purely by accident. I didn't notice it when I checked out, but this was twice as expensive as steel cut oats (which is what I thought I was getting!). Oops.
Irish oats are even less processed than steel cut oats because they are not rolled. The outer husk is removed and then the oat is chopped, leaving it chewier and nuttier (also significantly more nutritious).
