Friday Shout Out: Weetawhaaaaat?
It's healthy. Hearty. But kinda...uninspired. I told Scott this while we were shopping on Tuesday evening and he instantly and enthusiastically replied with "Weetabix!"
Now I consider myself fairly cultured, so I'm relatively familiar with Weetabix - that funny little brick-shaped cereal. Every food culture has a funny little packaged food item. Much like the Aussies' Vegemite, the American Spam, and the Italian's Nutella, Weetabix is specialness, commerically contained.
Or so I thought. We bought a box, I opened it on Wednesday morning, removed a couple "biscuits" from one of the plastic sleeves, and put them in a bowl with my usual banana and nuts. I sloshed some milk in there and made myself a cup of coffee.
In the time that I poured the coffee and added milk, then stirred the cup of coffee, my bowl of breakfast turned into total cold porridge! Those flaky Wheetabix melted into a sludgy mess of...ugh. It was bad - it tasted like what I imagine instant potato flakes would be like if you went heavy on flakes, light on milk.
This morning I tried eating a Weetabix with my usual 10:45am yogurt break (yes, I have one of those. I indeed am one of those people who need a schedule. Much like a small child. Oh well.) and it didn't go any better.
The ad on the box above recommends you "Give it a Go!" Well, I gave, and it went. There's that. Thanks a bloody lot, Weetabix.
SO. What do you have for breakfast each morning? Or are you one of those nutty people who don't eat breakfast? I don't get that. If I don't eat breakfast foods of some kind when I wake up, I'm liable to commit random acts of manslaughter by 9:30 a.m., guaranteed. I get a little...let's just say the term Scott uses for "an unpleasant woman" is apt.
Breakfast ideas. Let's banter.
