Tuesday Tastings

Yum! From here
A few weeks ago I blogged about my new milk craving, interestingly still of the slightly creamier, organic, fresh milk variety. Infinitely strange for moi, but if the body wants and needs it, I will do the responsible thing and up the need for the creaminess.

Now to add to this. Cereal is my next need. Umm...has my body been invaded by aliens of the food variety? My little sister used to luuurve cereal and would collect them wherever we went over the world. I was more of the keep it simple sort. Cornflakes. Yep Kellog's Cornflakes with warm milk. The original and best. With just enough sugar not to turn them into impromptu Frosties, and the warm milk making them just soggy enough. The left over milk was also the best part. Yum-O!! Think I need to go buy a box.


Something about them just makes you feel like home. I remember coming home from a family holiday and my mother and I walked in dropped suitcases at the bottom of the stares, poured milk, warmed it on the stove (no nuking the milk in the micro-onde), we poured a huge bowl filled with Cornflakes and we sat down  and had our first spoon fulls in silence and as great as the holiday was, we were like, It's great to be home. And to get to drink the cereal milk straight from the bowl at the kitchen table where you've eaten Cornflakes countless times.
Momofuku hooks it up and bottles it. Seen here


I think I may be feeling a little out of wack lately. Yes I am. I think I'm in need of some seriously basic comfort and some sort of rootedness. Life is a changing and it is really mostly marvellous, I cannot lie, but with change comes a strange sense of lack of comfort. We have to find our new comfort and our new comfortable. I need to figure out my new stride and so I should perhaps put down the piece of fruit that I am now eating on my raw food detox Monday diet (that's been postponed to Tuesday,because Monday we had a craving for toast).Put this down and creep back for a little bowl of comfort in Cornflakes,to soothe my intrepid,journeying soul at the moment.

Cereal is marvellous really. A bowl of Chocos reminds me of my home stay as a slightly scared 17 year old in Montpellier, France. Breakfast is one of my fave meals of the day, but a bowl of Cornflakes or Chocos has been known to be the highlight of many an evening in my life so far.

Have a great day...Cereal-sly ;)

  1. The leftover milk should be bottled :) I'm an All-Bran girl but Cornflakes and piping hot milk remind me of my dear dad so I love 'em every now and again.
