What’s so good about Cream of Wheat? Well, I can’t really explain it. It is good. Warm. Creamy. Sweet. Buttery. If you don’t know what Cream of Wheat is, join the club. Neither do I. I can tell you, however, that I normally make it using the water method (using water instead of the optional milk directions). Don’t know why….that’s how we always made it when I was a kid. Then, you’d put butter, brown sugar, and milk (depnding on how runny it was already). Then eat it.
