Cream of Wheat and "crispy"

Cream of Wheat: why did it take them so long to change the preparation instructions to something that made sense? The original instructions called for 1 cup of water or milk (milk makes delicious CofW) and 2 and a half tablespoons of Cream of Wheat. Do you know what a pain in the ass it is to measure out 2 and a half tablespoons? Especially early in the morning? Half a tablespoon is one and a half teaspoons. So you need three measuring spoons to make a cup of hot cereal. You could cut that back to two if you used 6 teaspoons for the 2 tablespoons (1 T=3 t) plus 1 teaspoon plus 1/2 teaspoon.
No wonder my Cream of Wheat was lumpy.

The new instructions call for 1 and 1/4 cup of water or milk (really--try it with milk) and 3 tablespoons of Cream of Wheat. I am overjoyed.

"Crispy": whatever happened to the word "crisp?"

That is all.

Rep. Garcia is speaking now

and oh my god is she hard to listen to--or was I spoiled by Adam Schiff. I'm yelling at my tv "Get her out of there!" She is boring and is not good at telling a rather complicated story.
