Milk, then Cereal

I’m a big fan of cereal in the mornings, largely because the prep time is nearly zero. And just like everyone else on earth who eats cereal I’ve become very particular about things like the milk-to-cereal ratio.

I’ve also always put the cereal in the bowl first, followed by a dousing of milk. But the layout of our kitchen is such that it’s much easier to do the milk first and then the cereal instead of my usual. So I, rebel that I am, have been trying this out… and it works pretty well. Knowing exactly how much milk is going in makes perfecting that milk-to-cereal ratio a lot easier, since I generally dislike having extra milk left over.

I trust this isn’t something revelatory. How do you prep your cereal? Milk first or not?

Cereal first. Anything else is madness.

I always put cereal first. I’ve never in 32 years done it the other way. I, rebel that I am, do like a bit of milk left over though. It’s flavoured and quite good!

What is this then?
