A breakfast favorite made of cornmeal boiled in milk.
Here's an "easy as pie" oatmeal porridge that can sustain you till lunch and is full of flavor
There isn't much you need for porridge. Milk, grain, your sweetener, and some spices.
The trick to making sure your porridge is not lumpy is to make sure to mix the cornmeal with some water prior to putting it on the stove. Making it into a paste helps the cornmeal to start swelling while the water boils and makes it easier to mix
You add your milks and sweeten to your liking.
Some people like their porridge thick. Some people like their porridge solid. And some people like their porridge thin.
To get the texture that you want, you add milk as needed. A little at a time.
Then you dive in, one spoon at a time. Each slurp full of cornmeal, a hint of bay leaf and cinnamon and nutmeg. Complete it with some fruits and a cup of homemade chocolate tea.
Being a bear has its benefits.
