Gentle Readers, the morning routine during the school year starts at approximately o-dark-thirty. There are exactly two people on earth who could make me get up cheerfully at this hour, and thankfully they are The Practical Cooks Junior. We are a fortunate lot in that all of us like breakfast foods of all stripes, making the morning that much more pleasant.
But let’s face it, for speed and variety, nothing beats cereal. We are committed as a team to trying all of it. Yes, you heard that right. In time, we plan to try every kind of cereal ever. As we move toward this lofty goal, it’s nice to have favorite things. In this case, handmade cereal bowls.
Just before the Eldest broke her ankle for her birthday, she crafted this piece of pottery. She has healed from the injury, though she can tell you about the buckle fracture on her fibula, but the cereal bowl lives on.
There is no faster way to get get someone to eat than having a favorite dish that they made from which to eat. Complete ownership of the experience. Try it. Trust me. For parents or friends of picky eaters: You’re welcome.
