How do you prepare oatmeal?

I watched a kid for a couple of hours today and his mom brought over oatmeal for him to eat.  It was a bowl of oatmeal, a scoop of chunky peanut butter and she told me to just add boiling water. I don't think I've ever smelled anything so nasty- although I did know of someone else who ate their oatmeal that way.

When I make oatmeal, I boil water with a pich of salt, add cinnamon and chop whatever hard fruit (apples, pears, nectarines) I have on hand, then add the oatmeal and sweetener like honey or brown or white sugar. Sometimes instead of hard fruit, I'll cut up a banana or some berries and add that at the end.

The thought of savory oatmeal is really unappetizing to me.

I dont eat oatmeal but my son used to, I used the instant kind and just put hot water from the tap in with it and microwaved it until it had thickened up. He ate the flavored crap anyway so I never added anything but a bit of butter to it.

I volunteer to save lives; What do you do?
