Two Scoops...WTF???

Tuesday, August 25, 2009


[This post is dedicated to my husband Brandon. Ok, hubby...I seem to be in a dedicating sort of mood today so this blog is for you. Although, you may not appreciate it...hehehe.]

So, I'm sure you're asking yourself...why the need for implied vulgarity??? Well, all week (yes, an ENTIRE two days) my husband has ranted and raved (ok, maybe just commented) every morning on how the nice, natural, organic raisin bran I bought him is a far cry from the well known cereal which cheerfully advertises "two scoops" of raisins and instead his cereal has more like "2,000 scoops". (Now, let me just say that I am not a raisin bran fan to begin with. I don't know...there's something about tiny mushy slimy cardboard flakes mixed in with dried sugar laden dehydrated prune/grape balls that just doesn't do it for me. Call me crazy.)

Anyway, not that the hubby prefers the well known brand(which will remain nameless to protect the innocent) but I have been forced against my will to look into his cereal bowl about a thousand times every morning at his utter disbelief that the ratio of raisins to bran flakes is about 5,000 to 1 and this is after he has picked out 900 small handfuls of raisins already...
The HORROR people!!!

Ok, I may have exaggerated a little bit, but moral of the story...I'm going back to buying Cheerios.

(love you baby!!!)

I looked real quick and thought...
Count me in for two of those ice cream bars covered with all that chocolate stuff...
Why is the Sun there?
SO much for Chocolate and nut covered ice cream bars. (Guess you know where my mind is..
forget the raisins and cardboard)
(so what do I choose for "Select Profile"?) I'll just pick one and see what happens.

Doesn't "two scoops" have to do with "Ice Cream"?

Mother Love...you are cracking me up! :) The sun is from the Kellogg's Raisin Bran box and their advertising for "two scoops of raisins in every box". Thanks for commenting...it's fun to see you on my blog!

You can really tell that my mind is on "Sugar".
I love ice cream. Even if it had raisins on it...i would probably eat it.

This Blog is about wellness....I guess that leaves out "Ice Cream"
