For me, oatmeal is tops on my list of favorites.

Inspired by this question that was posted by another member: https://answermug.com/forums/topic/138223/what-meal-did-your-family-serve-you-when-you-were-a-kid/view/post_id/964735

  Which of the foods named in the answers/comments to this question are among your favorites? (Click on the link.)

  In addition to oatmeal, I also like these from that thread:

Succotash 

Lima beans

Spaghetti 

Beef stew

Porridge

    Beef Stew
    Squash

    I know I put oatmeal on that list, but I love oatmeal raisin cookies.  It’s just plain oatmeal by itself that I won’t eat.

    I like a few, but none are on my favorites list except spaghetti, especially mine. The others I like are turnips and beets. I have pickled beets almost every day.

    Just reading the word "oatmeal" makes me gag.

    Might I assume you like borscht? I have never had it.

    I keep it around because I used it in recipes such as meatloaf, but that gooey nasty stuff is so gross I have not the right word.  I will happily take the last oatmeal cookie from the plate though!

    No surprise for you and me - - I  don't even have to look at that list and I can almost guarantee that oatmeal would be my choice, too.

    Aren't oatmeal and porridge the same thing?

    Spaghetti is the only one that I would include as a favourite. I'll eat stew and lima beans under sufferance, won't come at the others at all. Oatmeal/porridge is a pet hate. At the top it's glue, and about half way down it becomes concrete.
