Stirring it up

Hi Friends.

How's your Friday going? I'm pretty excited today because I am taking my husband on a mystery get-away weekend. I'll tell you more about it on Monday.

Before I go, though, I wanted to address a recent heated discussion that sprung up because of a recent Facebook status update I wrote. Now, I know there are some blog readers who aren't my friends on Facebook, so don't worry, I'll get you up to speed.

I was really surprised at the divisiveness and disgust that was shown by some of the comments, since I really had no intention of starting a war. I mean, come on people, I think there's enough room in this beautiful world of ours for all types of opinions and approaches to this.

Cereal Milk.

My simple question was: Cereal-milk: drink or dump?

I've learned that people have really strong feelings about this issue. Personally, I like to drink it. My husband doesn't, so I drink his too. (Don't be grossed out. We are one.) While most people who responded drink it, some people were calling the milk gross and strange tasting, while others have found a family member who likes it.

The reason I bring this up now, is to let you know, whatever you do with your cereal milk (should you choose to eat cereal with milk) is fine with me. It's a free country.

Cereal does seem to be a popular topic, every time I say something about it in my status I get lots of responses. Maybe that could've helped me in my blog reader race with my sister. Oh, but then she would've just posted pictures of her 5 cute kids eating cereal and beat me even worse!

Have a great weekend y'all!


  1. That's funny. I totally forgot to post anything on your fb status about it...and I read that one. For me it depends on what cereal was in the milk if I drink it or not. Fruit Loops= no drink; Cocoa Pebbles= drink...but it's mostly shredded wheat for me, and it usually drinks the milk for me ;)

  2. I love it! Don't forget about people like me.. I really like cereal and I used to really love it with milk, but now that I'm grown up it appears that I've become lactose intollerant. While I envy those who can enjoy the simplicity of milk, if I want to enjoy a bowl of cereal I have to go out of my way to find a healthier alternative (healthier for me). I mean, I can't just cut cereal out altogether! Oddly enough, while soy or almond milk may look like cow's milk, it tastes completely different and ultimately changes the entire cereal consumption experience. Good stuff, sis! Keep it up :)

  3. I usually just pour more cereal in and keep eating!

    Then again, oatmeal is now my default breakfast.

  4. I don't do milk. I eat cereal dry :D
