Prep with your oatmeal ingredients, including peeling and cleaning the orange ahead of time. While you can do this while the oats are simmering, I find it helpful to do all of my prep work before I begin cooking. It makes for a neater workstation, as well as prevents the frustration of something burning on the stove because you were distracted preparing other ingredients. As you'll find when cooking oatmeal recipes o the stovetop, it's important to make sure you watch so the don't burn or stick to the bottom of the pan.
