Fried Mush

Walk with me as I put theory into practice. Of course, most of you are light years ahead of me, so please teach me as I go! I would love your input, suggestions, and wisdom. I think that will help me stick to my plan.

Here was breakfast this morning.

I had leftover brown rice from lunch yesterday. At the suggestion of the "Fried Mush" recipe from Nourishing Traditions, I made some breakfast pancakes. (Sally uses oatmeal, but I thought this would suffice).

1. Break an egg over a cup and a half of brown rice (or oatmeal). Stir well.

2. Start melting your coconut oil or butter in a hot pan.
3. Add the rice by the heaping spoonful and mash down to form cakes.
4. Fry until the edges are brown and crispy. We poured a bit of raw local honey over the pancake to make it "breakfast-y". I can't believe the children ate these, but they did. I thought they were delicious, but they do not look anything like regular pancakes so I was worried. Fried mush, eggs, homemade ketchup, and raw milk. Wow. That makes, like, three whole meals that I feel good about.

We did have pizza last night at my nephew's birthday party. And ice cream cake. It was delicious. :)

Baby steps.

Hey Jennifer, I have a Mixmaster that somebody gave me. I don't use it that much, and I think you need it more than me. Drop me a line at netraptor1 at netraptor dot org. :-)

We love fried mush, too! I used to make it more before we had the ducks, because those gals adore our leftover oatmeal. However, comma, I used to make it a lot with leftover grits (Si is from the South, so I made some for him for a while there until I got tired of having to double-soak corn), and the kids would eat it as snack the next day with a dab of jelly on top. Yummy!

Glad you are enjoying this. To be honest, I have found every single NT recipe I have tried is something everyone liked, more or less.
