Woke up to a long overdue autumn air (Florida-style). With that cool and refreshing air banging on my doors, I decided to fling open the windows and doors. I did a few stretches and a jog.
After I completed my work out, something comforting was on my mind. Decided on an old favorite from my childhood (cornmeal porridge. It didn’t take me long to whip up same. In a stock pot, I added:
- medium grain cornmeal, whole milk, water, cinnamon, nut meg, pinch of salt and vanilla.
I stirred all ingredients and simmered same on low to medium heat for approximately 20 to thirty minutes. After porridge thickened to the right consistency and grains cooked, this was sweetened with condensed milk. Porridge was sprinkled with additional cinnamon on top.
Each spoonful was warm, creamy, not overly sweet and satisfying. I felt that I had replenished what I had lost during my work out. I was super happy.
