This is my favorite thing to eat for breakfast these days. It's warm and comforting on a cool morning, and it's a great alternative to grits (my husband grew up in the South, so I've eaten more than my fair share of grits in the time we've been together). You can dress this cereal up any way you like. Personally, I like serving it with a little cinnamon and vanilla, a squirt of agave nectar for sweetness, and some chopped walnuts or almonds. Oh, and if I've got some raisins or dried cranberries or cherries, I might add those too. It's very chilly here tonight, so I'm pining away for something warm--I guess that's why I'm thinking about a hot breakfast even though it's 9:45 p.m. Ahh.
P.S.Tomorrow's Election Day, everybody. Make sure to get out there and vote!
