Maple Berry Cream of Wheat
"a couple of weeks ago, i was thinking about how i ate instant oats all the time as a kid and have come to love them again as an adult - and then i remembered oatmeal’s forgotten cousin, cream of wheat. you know, the gloopy, maple brown sugar stuff that comes in a packet? anyone else? and i decided to give it a homemade cream of wheat a whirl using @bobsredmill semolina - and with all the fixings it is DELICIOUS. it takes even less time to coon than oatmeal and is so warming and filling! i’ll post the recipe below. * * i finished one of my major semester papers last night and don’t have anything else due until sunday, so i was able to enjoy a slow morning today. ? i went for a long walk, tidied the kitchen, made myself a big cup of coffee, and opened the sweetest st. nick’s/finals week care package from my mom, full of christmas goodies (i’ll share on my stories later!) i’m now off to my last classes of the semester and then am going to take a big nap before lifting and some yoga. have a great day!"
