TIP OF THE DAY: No More Soggy Cereal

Want to avoid soggy cereal?

We find that our morning bowl of cereal, filled with milk, becomes soggy after three spoonfuls.

It occurred to us: Why pour milk over dry cereal? Why not use a glass of milk as a chaser?

We tried it, it worked, and now it’s our favorite way to eat cereal:

1. Fill a bowl with cereal plus any sweetener or fruit.
2. Fill a glass with milk.
3. Insert a spoonful of cereal into mouth. Crunch once.
4. Follow with a sip of milk.
5. Repeat until all cereal and milk are consumed.

Just because it seems unusual doesn’t mean that it isn’t a better way. After all, forks weren’t used in England until the mid-17th century, although they were introduced to the country in 1608 by an Englishman who brought them back from Italy.

According to The History Of The Fork, the English ridiculed forks as being effeminate and unnecessary. “Why should a person need a fork when God had given him hands?” was the refrain.

So, learn a lesson from history: Try new things, as strange as they may seem.
