Instant Cream of Wheat with Nuts

This morning I got up early and as it is weekend,  U woke up late.  We had an early dinner last night and my stomach was rumbling non stop.  I could not wait for U to wake up any long and made myself some nutty instant cream of wheat for breakfast.  Later, when U woke up I made him an omelet, toast and fried bacon strips.  I did not bother to take a picture of his breakfast, as it would not qualify for  JFI: Breakfast event.  I am sending my breakfast though.

Before I get to the recipe, it is beautiful Saturday out here and am heading out to do some window shopping or may be some shopping too, while U watches NCAA basketball at home!  It is a sunny morning and was 60 degrees around 11 am when I stepped out to pick up some stuff from the drug store around the corner!  I am going to enjoy this wonderful weather, staying out as long as I can!  How is the weather in you neck of the woods?

  • This is a good idea for a weekday breakfast for the kids and the cream of wheat is made into upma mostly.

    We are having similar weather here in our neck of the woods too. Perfect to get us working in the garden patch to get it ready for summer growing.

    This is a quick and good weekday breakfast.

    Yesterday as I was walking down the lane, some of my neighbors were planting their plants too. Perfect weather for gardening!

  • That looks yummy and thanks for this entry.
    I begin to feel jealous when people talk about the spring and gardening. :) Particularly this season, when we don’t know when snow falls going to end in our region . It was snowing till afternoon today and we are in 30’s.

    Sorry to hear about the snow! Last few days have been awesome here, not very cold and not very hot either.

  • Even I havent tried any thing else than upma with cream of wheat..Love the combo with nuts, honey and milk..:)
