I think cream of wheat will always remind me of my big brother. He used to make it in the morning before school when we were young. When it is cooked just right it is creamy, but not watery, thick, but not a paste. My brother had it down. It is pure comfort food for me. (The only down side - that dirty pan. It is a pain to get clean.) I like mine with a tad of butter and a sprinkle of brown sugar or maple syrup. A blueberry or two as well.
I crave this after a run in the cold weather. It does the trick!!! Make as directed on box but use 1/2 water and 1/2 milk and stir slowly. (That's my brothers tip by the way). enjoy!
