tasty tuesday

this is an easy one. i'm enjoying right now as i type this post.

coconut creamed wheat.

Ingredients:

3 tbsp creamed wheat porridge
1 cup milk
3 tbsp toasted coconut
1 tbsp brown sugar

Directions
mix everything together in a microwaveable dish.
cook for 1 minute on high
stir
cook for 1-2 minutes (depending on your microwave) stirring every 30 seconds until creamy.
let sit for a minute and ENJOY!

i just made this "recipe" up this morning and if i wasn't sitting at my desk eating it out of an ugly ziploc container i would post a picture. maybe i will do an photo update when i eat it out of a real dish one day. i will be making this again. its great for my ravenous morning eating. i actually planned to eat it on my way to work but i forgot my spoon.

this recipe was inspired by this banana coconut oatmeal recipe here
i was thinking about adding banana but the ones i had at home were not ripe enough for me to consider eating. fernando is eating them, but i just eats the ones he leaves to long... i don't like them until they have brown spots. then they taste like bananas. when they're just yellow they make my teeth feel funny.

i might try adding crushed pineapple to this... pina coloda creamed wheat might be delicious. maybe not.... only one way to find out.
