Vanilla Cream of Wheat

There is nothing better than a nice warm bowl of cream of wheat on a cold winter morning. It's what us Yankees eat instead of grits. It is delicious and I can also feed it to The Good Baby, making my mornings easier.

Ingredients (for two servings):
2 cups of milk
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 tablespoon salt
1/3 cup cream of wheat
1 tablespoon butter
Cinnamon or nutmeg to taste

~In a medium saucepan, combine milk, vanilla, salt and sugar. Bring to a low boil and slowly add cream of wheat.

~Reduce heat to simmer and stir until thickened. Add butter and stir to combine. Sprinkle with cinnamon and/or nutmeg and serve warm.
