Danny really doesn’t like oatmeal. He says it’s a texture thing. Unfortunately, I can’t imagine not having oatmeal in my life (I mean… come on! It’s so healthy and delicious… am I right?!). I tried buying some steel cut oats thinking maybe that would help with the texture issue. He will eat it, but he’s still not a big fan. So cream of wheat is a nice sort-of substitute for us. I know, it’s not the same, but equally delicious. As long as it’s not instant. That stuff is weird.
Back in our beginning days, Danny was sweet one morning and made us some cream of wheat for breakfast. I took one bite and wasn’t sure what I had just put in my mouth. I made a face. He looked at me funny. It was salty! I’m sure I said something along the lines of “Who in their right mind puts salt in their cream of wheat!?” and/or “What did you accidentally put in this cream of wheat?!” but then I soon learned that he meant to put the salt in there. He said that’s how his family eats it… except his dad, who puts sugar in it. I said his dad must be the only one in his right mind. Then he made me my own batch. :)
So here are my questions to you, dear friends:
- Do you eat cream of wheat??
- If so, what is your normal? Sweet or salty?
Other maybe-not-so-normal things I eat with sugar: White rice (with butter and brown sugar!) and strawberries (with sour cream and brown sugar!) – okay, so strawberries with sugar is completely normal, but some people think the sour cream part is strange :/
And here’s a picture of Finn wearing my glasses because he’s just too adorable.
Until next time,
