Hot oatmeal with Vanilla Ice Cream!

I read a couple of recent threads about oatmeal and it got me thinking of my seemingly bizarre oatmeal tradition.
I cook hot oatmeal a few times each week. Both old fashioned and steel cut if I have the time in the morning.
I love putting a scoop of good vanilla ice cream on my oatmeal.
When I get odd looks I explain: I often see people putting cream and brown sugar or maple syrup on their oatmeal. Why not ICE cream which is sweet? I love the hot and cold sensation.
Anyone else? Am I the only one?
Never did hot oatmeal, but I did make an oat-nut streusel for a cake and used some for topping ice cream.
Your idea is a sound one. I need to try it.
I would try it! Similar to topping a crisp (apple, fruit, what-have-you) with ice cream.
I actually saw a recipe for blueberry cheesecake oatmeal this past week, so I don't think you're the only one. :) It would make me wanna eat oatmeal more often for sure, but would screw with the health benefit a bit...and that's OK, too! Maybe one would cancel out the other. HA HA!
I tried my own blueberry/strawberry cheesecake version this morning. Note steam rising from the bowl, so dramatic, TEE HEE. It's interesting, but can only imagine ice cream over the top is THAT MUCH BETTER. Not a bad way to start the day--a cup of fresh fruit, a little Neufchatel and cream with almonds and extra brown sugar over the top.
