PB&J Cereal

with 2 comments

t says: The other day I wanted lunch.  But there was no food in the house.  I spied some PB and J, so I figured that I’d make myself a sandwich.  Unfortunately, I forgot about a critical ingredient – there was no food in the house … including no bread.  Darn!  I cursed my luck as I stared at the jars of PB and J sitting on the counter.  Also on the counter was a box of Multigrain Cheerios (left out from earlier in the morning).  And then it hit me.  What if I had PB and Jelly cereal.  Blasphemy, right?  But why’s it song wrong?  Cereal’s kind of like a grain!  And it’s fortified!  Maybe it’s even better than bread!  So here’s what I did.

__ 1 spoonful of PB
__ 1 spoonful of jelly/preserves (strawberry rules!)
__ a microwave-safe bowl
__ some cereal
__ some milk

1)  Put the PB into the bowl.  Nuke for 30 seconds.
2)  Mix the PB in the bowl so it’s nice and smooth (should be very soft).  Add cereal and toss lightly until cereal is coated.  It’s funky at first cuz it’ll seem like there’s not enough PB, but just keep on it and it should spread out.
3)  Add the spoonful of jelly/preserves and toss – the jelly will end up thinly coating the cereal and hiding in some nooks and crannies – it’ll seem like there’s not enough – add more if you want, but try not to overdo it – it’ll be too sweet.
4)  Add milk and enjoy!

Now, I know this doesn’t sound complicated.  It’s not!  It also doesn’t look pretty – but that’s ok!

PB and Jelly and Cereal

Who cares what it looks like?  Eat it as you would cereal.  I find that it adds some “oomph” to the cereal (i.e. it cuts down my AM cereal consumption from 2.5 bowls to 1) and is quite tasty.  Give it a whirl once – chances are likely that you’ll more often have PB and J and cereal lying around than you will slices of bread!
