Banana Nut Müslix

Friday.jpg

This last Breakfast at the Flea™ special was going to be Banana Nut Müslix. All that banana-nut goodness was lost to me when I discovered the milk I bought at the Super Spender last night had gone off. Vexed again! I may have to go out for brunch instead. Just as well. My Grandad had a useful category he called "rabbit food". This referred to green, leafy edibles but I am quite sure it extends to müslix. I believe it also fits the "foreign muck" category which included the entire menu at McDonald's.

Sour milk? Oh dear, I hope you didn't throw it away. It's great for making scones. You could have had nice tasty hot scones for breakfast. Bet you threw it out.

Mmm. Scones! You may be assuming culinary skill which I do not possess. I was planning to take the milk back and give the Super Spender folks a chance to make good but now I do not know what to do.

Müslix? That's über-rabbit-food... Doesn't it even come with a roll of TP in the box...?

Good God, you'll start eating granola next...

If you are going to eat Muslix, you have to counteract it by pouring heavy cream or Half And Half on it!

Paul's right. Müslix, and even the original non-Kellogg-ified European muesli, brings with it the certainty of nutritional virtue (and intestinal evacuation) on a short timetable. It darn well ought to ship with a roll of TP and a medication-style warning: Not to be consumed before interminable 9am department meetings.

Trust me, the Banana Nut version is a hybrid junk-food müslix. I still feel self-conscious whenever I buy it and wonder if people in the check-out line think I am a hippie.
