Dressed Up Cream of Wheat

This week it occurred to me that my kid had never tried cream of wheat. I can’t really explain why; especially since this was a staple of my childhood. So, I bought a package of Bob’s Wheat Farina and introduced it to my kid this morning. Of course we garnished it with the works: brown sugar, honey, almonds and dried cranberries. What’s not to like?

I guess I had forgotten a) how easy it is to make cream of wheat and b) how delicious childhood tastes. Luckily my kid really liked it too so we will be making it again very soon. Now for the recipe…
