Getting the most out of breakfast
If you enjoy cereal, as I do, you know the dilemma of the last bowl. It’s morning, and as you pickup the cereal box, you realize this bowl is going to be the last one. Not a problem in and of itself, except for the cereal crumbs and fine dust that inhabit the bottom of the cereal box. Once added to milk, these tiny bits congeal into a strangely foul-tasting mess.
My wife, once again, comes to the rescue with a small bit of acquired wisdom. Grab a handheld sifter (such as the above OXO brand), put the sifter over the sink (don’t forget this important step!), and pour the last of the cereal into the shifter. Now, gentle shake the sifter. You’ll see that fine dust float down into the sink. Once it stops, pour the cereal into your bowl, add cold milk, your choice of fruit, and enjoy a clod-free breakfast.
