Rocks and Pebbles

The other day I was eating a bowl of cereal. It was one of those healthy kinds with chia seeds, buckwheat, and apple chunks. It looked kind of strange - not like the usual flake cereal.

My husband walked past me and did a double take. "What is that?" he asked, peering into the bowl.

"Bird seed," I said.

He gave me a funny look. "That's not bird seed. It's rocks and pebbles. You're eating a bowl of rocks and pebbles."

"No, it's not 'rocks and pebbles'," I said. I showed him the bag of cereal.

He took it from me, and got out a black marker. He crossed out the name of the cereal and wrote, Rocks and Pebbles, across the top.

So, now ladies and gentlemen, every morning, I eat a bowl of rocks and pebbles - the breakfast of champions!

    1. Healthy stuff. Maybe they should actually market it as "Rocks and Pebbles." Lots of people might try it just for the funny name.

  6. Yes, it is whatever the label says. Even if it is newly written!

  9. Ha ha. I hope it was tasty. Some health foods are and others taste like bird food.

    1. This actually was. Some health foods do taste rather bland. I'll eat rocks and pebbles again. ;-)

  10. When the word gets out Rocks and Pebbles will be a big hit! The company will wonder why their marketing was so good!

    1. The company should just call the stuff Rocks and Pebbles. It's much more interesting than their current name.

    1. Haha! Fortunately, milk does a good job of softening the rocks and pebbles I ate!

  13. How about some nice scrambled eggs instead? I'm afraid your teeth will fall out.

    Love,

    1. This stuff really looked like rocks and pebbles. The chia seeds were tiny and black, and the other stuff looked like grains of sand and pieces of gravel. It looked weird, but it was healthy and tasted good.

    1. I agree. I should write to the company and tell them to name their cereal, Rocks and Pebbles. ;-)

  16. That's kind of funny that your husband actually wrote that on there. I've never thought of that healthy food as rocks and pebbles...but I could totally see bird seed :)

    1. My husband writes a lot of things on our food. When I got a box of Corn Flakes, he wrote, "No Cornflake Chicken," across it. Apparently that wasn't a favorite!
