      Oh YES. I can only give 5 stars?? I ate this all by myself & was a very happy person all day long. It reminds me a bit of dh's Italian childhood recipe of pastina w/eggs & parmesan. Not sure what the lemon juice is for but it all works. It seemed a bit strange adding cinnamon sugar & fruit to an otherwise savory dish but oh my yummmmmmmmm. I will eat this on a regular basis. Made for German Tag Contest 5/12.
