k. is it just me or...

does anyone else on this planet feel compelled to add ANYthing to a bowl of cereal before eating it? i have my grandma to blame for this, at least partially, for she was the one who mixed cereal with other cereals...and nine times out of ten had nothing but sour milk to accompany it (because, after all, if it doesn't kill you, it's still gooooooood)

*oh, and here's a tip....she also poured the milk BEFORE introducing the cereal, as to minimize the soakage. hellooooo, can YOU say depression era?!?!?!?!

i, for one, can not, WiiiiiLL not, ingest said boxed good without mixing it with another boxed good (transbrand o.k.), throw fruit on top, or at the very least stir in plain non-fat yogurt.

and just in case you're wondering...YEEEEES, i don't mind if my food touches on the plate! it rolls around in the belly like that,, yah? so, who am i to circumvent inevitability?!?!?!?!

Nah, it's not just you. I like to mix it up. Home made granola, yogurt, fruit. Like that. I like that Special K has strawberries in it, and I'll eat it dry for a snack. I've never liked milk in cereal.

hahaha...that last part is esp. funny.

my dad mixes everything on his plate into a big pile (pasta, veggies, meat) and eats it! when we laugh about it he says "hey! it mixes in my belly!"

well, it's CHEAP red rose and tea. if you put a drop of decent wine in there it'd be gross. ;)

my dad rubs his belly when he says that, too. hahah!

Too funny. I'm Italian and my dad often comments on the mixing of foods in the old system. "It all goes to the same place anyway, so...eh!"

Cereal just isn't cereal without the extras. My current favourite additions are sliced almosts, walnuts, cinnamon, bananas, and sometimes a dash of maple syrup. I also make a mean hot oatmeal with the same ingredients, then add a bunch of extra spices including nutmeg and some vanilla. Mmmm. :)

i'm drooling.

and if you haven't tried true mexican vanilla...you haven't tasted vanilla yet. yup yup...i'd wear it like perfume if i could..

Cereal, Yea I hate soggy cereal. However after I pour the milk in I have to mix the cereal in the milk so all the cereal is all covered with milk then I eat it fast to prevent the "soggy" from setting in. Never added anything other than sugar to my cereal however.

hmmmm...very methodical approach...
i would expect nothing less from a pilot...

but, what happens if one cereal partical escapes the milkage...do they get ejected? ;D

No cereal morsel has ever escaped the 'milkage'!

i feel compelled to add sugar
to special k
the more i eat, the slimmer i get!

unless it's coco pops
which are like a slowly increasingly sweet crunchy milkshake.
quality hangover gear.

i used to love ready brek.
nothing like a red glowing indestrucible sheild
to start the day! woot!
