Breakfast of Championship Shovelers and a Give-Away

Kramer is pretending he doesn't want to eat my cereal.

I am finally done shoveling - until the snow plow goes by and undoes the end of my driveway.  And the winds pick up tonight and drift over everything I've shoveled.  But, for now, there are pathways to everything important.  The only reason I am not totally exhausted is that I fueled up with a big bowl of my favorite hot cereal - an organic multi-grain purchased at (sigh) Trader Joe's.  It's got rye, barley, oats, and wheat, and I tossed in some frozen raspberries from my neighbor's patch and added a dollop of raw milk.  YUM. 


Seeing that I have a bonus day off (not counting the half-day I'm shoveling), I did a bit of sorting in the cookbook shelves.  I came across a great cookbook for families with young children (I have no idea why I have it).  So, in the interest of all you great moms out there who carefully and healthfully feed your family, I am giving this away to one lucky commenter.  Don't have kids, but know someone who does?  Pass it along!  Leave a comment below and I will choose a winner on Friday.  I will not be using "Fangs" to choose the winner...

  1. Okay, I'll jump in. No kiddlies in this house anymore but I know just exactly who I would give the book to. After I read it, that is. (Anybody else read cook books like novels?)

  2. P.S. I could eat your cereal and the bowl it's in. It sounds sooo good! (And I haven't even been shoveling - sniff,sniff - today.)

  3. I'm here too... I'll read it and then pass it on to a friend with some little ones. Mama Pea, I have my "Laurel's Cookbook" that I read every year.

  4. Hope, etc. - Ruth, have you seen "Laurel's Kitchen Caring - Recipes for Everyday Home Caregiving"? If you read her regular cook book, you will LOVE this one. It never fails to "comfort" me to read it!

  6. Well I know I'm probably too late for the give away, but I just found your blog this morning...and a) I love that you have cats that *pretend* they aren't eating your cereal. They muse be related to ours. And b) what a cool book! I have two boys (almost six and seven) and this book would not look out of place on our cookbook shelf. :) I'm going to go catch up on the rest of your blog...
