Spoon... PAD #1103

This morning I made some 5 Grain Cereal. It contains Oats, Rye, Triticale, Barley and Golden Flax. I bought a container of it to bring to work so I could make a nice hot breakfast for myself when I get in. With 5g of fiber, 0 Sodium, 0 Cholesterol, 6g of protein and 454mg of Omega 3 a serving I figure I would be starting the day right. And I am at least starting it eating right. The first time I made this it blew up in the microwave. The second time I tried a few things differently and it didn’t explode much. Today I boiled the water in the microwave first. Then stirred in the cereal, then it was still watery so I put it back in for 30 seconds at a time. Each time I would take it out and stir it again. This stuff must retain a ton of heat because my spoon ended up melted in the position above.

It would be pretty hard to eat a year’s worth of free Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream with a spoon like that. So, I figure I had better get a better spoon because I stand a good chance of winning this Ice Cream give away from Elizabeth at Table for Five. But that is not all I could win, the best thing to top your ice cream with and I mean top, not just the sprinkles, hot fudge and nuts but what is the most fun to put on ice cream? That would be Reddi-wip® Real Whipped Cream. I mean, who hasn’t eaten that stuff directly from the nozzle of the can?

I really hate to tell anyone else about this contest because I would love all that ice cream for myself but here is the deal with the contest.

How to enter:

You have to go to Elizabeth’s contest post Win a year’s supply of Reddi-wip and Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream

Entries may be submitted until April 29th at 9 AM ET. Elizabeth will draw the Grand Prize Winner at random, and notify them by email that they have won. Good luck everybody! Good luck to Me.

The 5 Grain Cereal may be a good thing for the morning but I’d really like to use a new spoon with something like a pint of New York Super Fudge Chunk® Ice Cream.

    I am surprised that I didn’t, a friend of mine says that line all the time when I ask him to get me a spoon from the caf.

  5. Elizabeth says:

    If you win the giveaway, it will be because you were chosen at random and not because you wrote this totally awesome post about it, although I sure wish I could just name you the winner right now!

    Lol You call that a spoon?

  7. Drew says:

    Thanks Elizabeth, looks like you were able to post the comment after all. I would love to win and I hope the contest draws a huge crowd to your blog. You should be part of the fab 4 for IZEAFest 2008 with all the awesome things you do with your blog. You have a lot to teach us all.

  8. Drew says:

    Well it is difficult to eat with, soup is a real pain but anything really sticky and not runny is fine. Lol

  9. Mo says:

    Hi, Ben

    How are things?

    Looks like they are melted. Lol. Does the plastic melt into the food? I hope not. *Bwwellech!* Microwavable plastic tends to melt. I use the thicker tupperware types.

    Thanks Mo, you should enter as well. I would not want to discourage anyone from entering.

  13. Drew says:


    Thanks for stopping by, I checked out your blog, that would have been a great resource for when I was getting married. I especially loved the T-shirts for the Groom and Groomsmen.

  14. Drew says:


    The plastic just melted itself, not into food. The food is okay. Thanks.

    I never use a spoon. You don’t need one when you keep your bowl on the floor.

    Stephen, I guess that this certainly would not be a problem for you then.

  17. Anna says:

    While this is an awesome post and all, I’m hoping you don’t win that ice cream because I want it all to myself!

    Your cereal sounds really good. Do you just buy the 5 grain cereal from the bulk section or do you mix your own? I’m running to the store today so I’m thinking of buying some – and blaming it on you.

    Of course, I’m also thinking of buying some of that ice cream (buy 1, get 1 free at Walgreens) but I’ll be blaming that on Elizabeth.

  18. Drew says:

    Oh it is on, it is on :-).

    The cereal is Old Wessex Ltd. It looks like a container of oatmeal. It is actually pretty filling and good. I used to have brown sugar on it but then because of the diabetes I have it plain.
