    I was meaning to make steel cut oatmeal for tomorrow and forgot until your comment. It really doesn't take much time to make it in the morning if you set the oatmeal to soak the night before.  It only takes a few minutes to cook if prepared this way and it will be so good to go with the snow predicted for tomorrow.

      I am choosing to take your particular comment as well-meaning but everyone who uses this phrase ought to be aware that it comes off as incredibly condescending. I am really sick of being told how many things "really don't take much time"---the implication being that you're a lazy ass if you don't think you can fit this or that task into your busy day or night.

      And actually, I have soaked steel cut oats the night before several times. It took more than "a few minutes" to cook in the morning plus needed attention in the form of stirring (when I don't stir enough it cooks onto the pan and gives me extra time washing dishes later). It's certainly "do-able" but not something I have time for every day.
