Moments after starting the back-breaking process of making oatmeal, I realized I have all the ingredients for waffles with warm cinnamon apple (and raisin?) topping, and oh, that would be perfect right now on this chilly afternoon.  But I can't bear to let the humble, well-meaning oatmeal, which I haven't made in ages (always passing it over for its heartier steel-cut cousin), now simmering, feel slighted or unwanted when it was, for several moments, my first choice.  Plus, making oatmeal gives me an "excuse" to use my beautiful new oven, and I don't want to let the oven down either.
