all we ever get is gruel
As it goes, lots of Americans eat gruel all the time ~ it’s merely another name for oatmeal. Mixed thin mind you, but oatmeal nontheless. This from the musical Oliver, based on Charles Dickens seminal work; Oliver Twist.
Please listen with a proper appetite.
no doubt Oliver, the Artful Dodger, et al
would enjoy this strawberry and rhubarb pie
