Everything you need to make the most important meal of the day delicious.

Oatmeal should be celebrated everyday, but especially today. Because apparently it's National Oatmeal Day! If you're really serious about both oatmeal and fall, skip the normal bowl and eat it from a carved-out pumpkin. (Gross or glorious?) Whether sweet or the more risqué savory, steel-cut or rolled oats, oatmeal is one of our food best friends. Here are five ways to enjoy oatmeal on its big day. Grab your spurtle!
