Goodness Comes in a Bowl


This is sponsored content by BlogHer and Kelloggs.


We recently bought a new dishwasher, and one of the things I like best about it is that it has plenty of space for bowls. It's surprising how many bowls we go though during the day. When I cook, I like to put my ingredients in neat little bowls, like they do on all the cooking shows. I use bowls to mix, microwave, serve and store our food. Oh, and we eat from bowls too!

When the kids were younger, they used bowls exclusively; the sides of the bowls kept food from spilling over when they were trying to scoop up their food into a spoon. Now that they're older, I still use bowls to serve them snacks; nuts, chips, crackers, cut fruit, dry cereal are just some of the snacks that are so much easier to eat from a bowl than a plate.

Snacks aside, we eat quite a few meals from bowls. How else can you have cereal and milk for breakfast? Or oatmeal? Or yogurt? I serve soup at least once a week, sometimes twice -- heck, I love soup and if it were up to me, I could probably eat it every day -- which adds even more bowls to our pile of dirty dishes. Pasta? In a bowl. Rice? Hey, I'm Asian, of course it goes in a bowl! And let's not forget dessert: ice cream, pudding, and anything served a la mode has got to go into a bowl.


Whatever you like to put in your bowl, don't forget to sprinkle some Bonggamom Finds on top!

Chili! Definitely chili, with sour cream and shredded cheese as a garnish. Yum!

My favorite food in a bowl has long been beef stew, though I tend to eat cereal much more often. There's certainly something to be said for convenience. :)

My favorite one-bowl meal is "The Mushroom Soup" from PW's website....but if I knew how to make a fabulous chicken tortilla soup, I think it would be my favorite.

My wife makes a great white chicken chili with a white cheddar and swiss cornbread thing baked on top. There is a layer of cheese between the two that oozes out when you push in the spoon.

I have many favorite foods that I enjoy in a bowl. Right now, I'm listening to the rain come down pretty hard and thinking that a nice, hot & hearty, homemade stew/soup or chili/beans would help warm me up. When I'm not cold, I enjoy a bowl of Kellogg's Bran Flakes (although I don't usually eat in the mornings). Thanks for the giveaway.

I'm an old fan of Kellogg's Corn Flakes.

When I'm sick, it is always the first thing I want and in the middle of a dark night, I think of Corn Flakes.

I'm hopelessly hooked forever.
