Lumpy cream of wheat

One of my favorite things about my Grandma was that the cream of wheat she made was lumpy.

Every time my sister and I would go stay with Grandma, or any time I was there, really, we would request cream of wheat. We thought the lumps were a special treat just for us.

Fancy, if you will.

My mom eventually let us know that cream of wheat wasn't actually supposed to be lumpy. Apparently my Grandma's cream of wheat was lumpy because she was in a hurry to make it or something.

See, it comes out lumpy when you dump it all in there at one time instead of slowly adding the wheated part to the boiling milk.


Accidental, hurried, or secretly fancy just for us. I prefer my cream of wheat with a whole lot of lumps in it.

I'm eating it that way right now.

I, too, am a fan of lumpy cream of wheat. I've also learned that it's really hard to make it lumpy in the microwave but super easy on the stove.
