'At the table in the kitchen, there were three bowls of porridge. Goldilocks was hungry. She tasted the porridge from the first bowl. "This porridge is too hot!" she exclaimed.
So, she tasted the porridge from the second bowl. "This porridge is too cold," she said
So, she tasted the last bowl of porridge. "Ahhh, this Wee Bear Special Porridge is just right," she said happily and she ate it all up.' (The milk was replaced with a 5.6 ounce can of coconut milk diluted with filtered water to the 3 cup mark. Walnuts were garnished on top. Delicious and ~Tasty Dish~ approved!
