Quaker Oats Confusion

For a company the size of Quaker Oats that sells probably more instant oatmeal than anyone else in the world, wouldn't you think they could get their color-coding figured out?

Is "Original" blue, or red? Is "Cinnamon & Spice" red or orange? No wonder everyone flocks to "Maple & Brown Sugar"—it's the only one that doesn't seem to be having an identity crisis!

Week 133—Comforts of Home

Mon – Road food
Tues – Chili (Thanks, Mom)
Weds – Pork tenderloin, sweet potatoes, salad, cornbread
Thurs Pizza
Fri Chicken stir-fry
Alts – Enchiladas; Goulash
Being on the road so much the past month is giving me a renewed appreciation for the ease of assembling a meal with a fridge, stove, oven, microwave, toaster, sink with hot and cold water, and a fresh supply of dishtowels and cloths at hand.

Not that smacking some Goober on a slice of bread from the front seat of the van was all bad either. Happy cooking.

A note on electric griddles

Complete piece of crap griddle: Presto 20inch

Decent, good value griddle that cleans easily, uses a substantial amount of metal that won't shatter and cause bloodshed, nor scoot along the counter every time you flip the 'cakes: Cooks 20inch by JCPenney 

Just thought you should know.
