more rice--it's just not for breakfast anymore!

<< Hello fatfrees:
 I'm having trouble with eating rice for breakfast.  A few
 weeks back, someone posted a recipe for cooking a combination
 of grains overnight in the crockpot.  I didn't write down the
 recipe, because I don't like rice pudding--type things.
 But I want to go on McDougall for a few weeks and so I tried
 last night to cook millet, barley, and short-grain brown rice
 in a bunch of water.  I added salt, sugar, and a few date pieces
 this morning, but it still tasted too strongly ricey.  Is it
 something you get used to?

why not just have oatmeal for breakfast?  you can make steel cut oats ahead
of time and add a little water and reheat in the microwave. brown sugar,
raisins, yum.

also, mcdougall has a recipe (in MWL, i think) for millet squares.  you boil,
chill, slice and bake.  they definitely need jam or SOMETHING on them but
they're nice when they can be made sort of crispy by baking long enough...
