So…y’all know that I’ve been dreaming of Cream of Wheat for months. And looking for a gluten – free alternative just as long. Yesterday I received a delivery from UPS and since I wasn’t expecting anything…I was more than a little concerned that maybe I’d started sleep shopping. 😉
Nope. Papa Lupiac’s cousin, B sent me these boxes of Cream of Rice. 🙂 It was such a lovely surprise and really really touched me.
Thank you so much, B. Your thoughtfulness is appreciated more than I can express here. 🙂
(I don’t know if she’d appreciate being named on the blog but everyone in our family will know who I’m talking about.)
Of course I had to try it out for supper. (I like my hot cereal super thick.) A little butter. A little sugar. A couple pieces of gluten-free toast rounds for dipping.
It was everything I’d hoped it would be…creamy…smooth…no off taste at all…just perfect comfort food. 🙂 I was worried it was going to taste like baby rice cereal…which I admit to trying…but this is nothing close to the vitamin-y taste of the baby food. It’s just creamy neutral. Yea…I’m so happy. 🙂
Let’s see. What else from the last few days…
Restocked the spinach juice.
Made some Monster Cookies. These are still one of the most requested cookies by my family.
Used the rest of the Buttermilk dough to make this small loaf of cinnamon / raisin bread. I got a smidge too much brown sugar in there and it made caramel. Yum. 🙂
Made Mama L a batch of messy looking but delicious chocolate covered (Glutino) pretzels. I’ve got the fam requesting gluten-free stuff. 🙂
I don’t usually blog on the weekend but I’ll have at least one post up this weekend. We’re going heavy on the Cajun / Mardi Gras around here for the next few days. 🙂
Hope y’all had a great week and have an even better weekend. See you soon with some spice and some sweets. 🙂
