Delicious! The oatmeal is cream but hardy, and the strawberries are just sweet enough to reveal their true flavors. I was skeptical of the sour cream, but I couldn't taste the sourness at all: it lent a creamy milk taste, almost like the whipped cream on a strawberry shortcake. This is now my favorite breakfast :)
