Burning Daylight Foods


One night last fall, I came home to find a package from my friend Dani.  I opened it up, and – SCORE! – homemade granola!  Belying my civilized charade, I promptly ripped open the bag and poured it directly into my mouth.  Yes, like a savage.

Except it was not granola.  It was oatmeal.


But you know what?  I didn’t even mind that it was dry oatmeal coating my mouth – because it was THAT GOOD.  Or, at least, it was better than pouring dry Quaker Oats directly into my mouth – one hundred times better than pouring Target’s Market Pantry oatmeal into my mouth!  In fact, if I were ever to pour dry oatmeal into my mouth again, I would hope for oatmeal like Dani’s.

This is all to say that Dani and her family make some DELICIOUS cereal – whole grain and hearty and healthy.  And this is your lucky day – because Burning Daylight Foods is putting together an Easter basket full of scrumptious breakfast goodies, and YOU could win it!

All you need to do is leave a comment saying something – anything – about breakfast.  It could be something like, “I love Corn Flakes,” or “i can haz eggz?” or “I stole the Nun Bun.”

Comments will close tomorrow at 5pm Denver time – or, you know, whenever I remember to close them.  And then, using high-tech means, a winner will be chosen.

It could be you!  Seriously, this is the easiest contest ever.  It’s like taking candy from a baby – except the candy is cereal, and the baby is a cowgirl in southern California.

    I love McDonalds hashbrowns more than any other breakfast food ever. Except for The Pancake House. Nothing beats that.

    Breakfast….the only time my kids will eat without a battle. I would love it if they ate something other than Pops for breakfast. Variety is the spice of life…right?

    I guess they never found that nun bun thief, huh? My favorite thing for breakfast is Kashi Go Lean Crunch with fresh berries. Thanks, Annie!

    YUM. I am sort of addicted to good cereal. And I MUST have my morning cup of tea.

    I would do anything to win a breakfast other than my daily grape nuts.

    To quote the great By Shel Silverstein

    “From breakfast to lunch
    Your Post Toasties will crunch
    To show you their love and undying devotion.
    Oaties stay oaty, and Wheat Chex stay floaty,
    And nothing can take the puff out of Puffed Rice.”

    I often eat breakfast for most meals :)

    I love breakfast but I’m allergic to eggs. So that pretty much leaves cereal and oatmeal. This basket would be AWESOME!

    Saturday Morning Breakfast is my favorite tradition. I’ll take blueberry pancakes with turkey bacon. Yum.

    i want to be the kind of breakfaster who always has on really cute, flowy pj’s and is barefoot in their kitchen, but my old drafty house is always cold so I need socks. And my pj collection is struggling. But let’s get serious. Breakfast is all about the goods, and I’d love the basket!
