Experiments: Whole Grains and Brown Rice

No pictures hoy. Anyway..

I had no idea how much grains expanded when you cook them!! My first experiment the other day involved barley, millet, wheat berries and spelt in the slow cooker overnight. I followed a recipe and woke up to massive amounts of a breakfast cereal similar to oatmeal. It's got vanilla soymilk and cinnamon. At least it tastes good! I will be eating this for days.

Today, another first, I made brown rice. I've heard it tastes bad but.. I liked it just fine. I sauteed some veggies and mixed it all up for dinner. I've been using more and more spices.. it turned out quite spicy, but fantastic I must say.

I remain optimistic!
