It is official! It's Autumn! On some mornings when the weather gets a bit chilly, hot Cream of Wheat cereal makes one very warm, filling, tasty breakfast. It's quick - takes 2 minutes and 30 seconds to simmer on top of the stove. It's easy - 2 ingredients - the dry cereal and the Milk. I use Soy Milk. No optional Salt for me. The familiar red box states that this prepared cereal contains Calcium and also Iron. Now, this is where those brown spotted overripe Bananas sure do come in handy. O.K., I use three ingredients.
By following the directions on the Cream of Wheat box while preparing, I also add a sliced Banana to the dry cereal plus milk in the pot before bringing the mixture to a boil and then simmering. What a delicious taste - I might even murmur that I do like the taste of a Banana, on occasion that is. :)
Two mornings ago it was a Cream of Wheat AM. Now, it feels like summer, again. Ah, New England at its best!
Do you enjoy hot cereal on cold mornings?
