2 cups water
1/3 cup cream of wheat
Salt (Optional)

Boil water ... add cream of wheat.  Stir for couple minutes or so ... so smooth, no lumps.  This is the way cream of wheat ... should be.

I made cream of wheat for Skip and I this morning for breakfast.  As I was measuring the cream of wheat ... we began talking about how we ... love lumps in our cream of wheat.  For some reason ... the lumps makes the cream of wheat more fun to eat ... taste better!

I told Skip ... as I stirred the cream of wheat ... the cream of wheat is just too smooth!  How do I put lumps in it!  He said he didn't know.

Well ... I got to thinking ... how can I ... put lumps in the cream of wheat.  This is what I did ... as the smooth, creamy cream of wheat cooked ... I took the box of cream of wheat ... pour some of it 'here and there' ... I began to stir gently.  I didn't want to break up any lumps I saw forming!

I made lumps in the cream of wheat ... it was perfect!  We love lumps in cream of wheat.  We were eating the cream of wheat ... enjoying the lumps! ... I told Skip, "real people like lumps!"

This morning that cream of wheat did taste better because it had lumps in it!  :)  We are ... real people, ha!

  1. I have never heard of anyone liking lumps in anything like that. Each person has their own taste buds. My taste buds are different from anyone else. How many people do you know that likes mayonnaise with their steak or fries? It is a nice day for that cream of wheat though!Snow and sleet will make a good day for warm foods! Love, Ms. Nancy
