Gruel is my comfort food. Sometimes I boil it to where it is really clumpy, but it's soft and warm. I add some sugar or fruit to it, and it beats all other cereals. It's too bad no one commercializes gruel. Realism is a powerful theme this decade. Notions like Survivalism and Minimalism are quite popular, not just practical.
Technically "Cream of Wheat" is gruel if you make it that way. I just wish they had added vitamins and minerals to it so I could eat it more often and not worry about adding that it to my personal mixes.
