How to Make - And Eat - Cereal...

I cannot believe little Miss Hannah is old enough for solid food! And, technically, she isn't - not in my book. However, she's been showing lots of readiness signs and she is only a week from six months, so Daddy thinks she is. I was all prepared to stop at the first little bit of spit out food. She must have known that, because she ate like she had been eating for years. She did awesome! I usually do not start my children on cereal (usually first food is avocado), but I found an awesome, simple recipe for brown rice cereal so that is what she's eating...and loving.

We started with 1/4 cup of whole brown riceThen I tried to turn it into a powder in my food processor. Not a good idea. The thing started smoking - a lot. So, I moved it to my blender, which took maybe 20 seconds. Then I dumped it into 1 3/4 cup of boiling water, cooking and stirring constantly for 10 minutes. I let it cook and then put some into her own little dish. This is the finished product.

Hey! Why did you put this thing around my neck this time???
Oh. My. Word. This is delicious, Momma! Of course, not near as good as my nummies, but it is go-od Momma!
Wow...that is tasty!
That's it?!?! Seriously??? No more???
