Guf, I am having trouble with my Ei-Fi again. I just let it sit there and upload while i do chores, and after 30 minutes nothing happened so I finally just did it manually. It went “bad” again during an upload, so not sure what’s going on.
I worked from bed again this morning and got 2 small things turned in – discussion boards for my online Psych class. I’ve just got 1 major and 2 minor things to do today, but otherwise it’s a clear day – both in my mind and in the skies!
USMills sent me some cereal samples (hence the cereal overload!) and included in the box was Farina. Some of you have asked me about this before, and I’d never tried it. It seemed to be a lot like grits, and unfortunately isn’t a whole grain. It was fun to try though, and like the ugali for the Kenyans, hopefully this will give me lots of energy for my mid-morning run! I can already feel the energy rising up 🙂
All the info: Farina.
I used 3 tbsp (1 serving) with a cup of water. I didn’t want to experiment with milk yet, but I did add banana and used the slow-cook method of putting everything in cold rather than boiling the water first. I also added a tbsp of oats – but they kind of disappeared.
Since the farina is not a whole grain, I added back fiber and vitamins in the form of cereal topping. This was about a quarter cup of AgavePlus granola and 1/3 cup Kashi GoLean. Along with a drizzle of maple syrup and a spoonful of Naturally More.
Just like grits! It was quite filling. We’ll see how long it holds me over, but I suspect the cereal addition was a good choice in that factor.
I am off to prep for my oatmeal experiment I am doing in Food Lab tomorrow. And then I might clean the kitchen floor on my hands and knees because my mom says that’s the best way to get it clean. Our floor is ALWAYS dirty!!!
Then it’s running time!
Happy Birthday To Nate!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Have a wonderful, sunny Thursday
