Kellogg's, Week Eleven: Good Things in Bowls, and a $100 Visa Gift Card Giveaway

This is sponsored content by BlogHer and Kellogg's.



This is the eleventh of twelve weekly posts sponsored by BlogHer and Kellogg's. EACH POST will have its own $100 gift card giveaway. The plan is to have each giveaway start on Tuesday and run until the following Monday.

This week's topic is Good Things in Bowls: What's your favorite meal in a bowl? Soup? Cereal? Yogurt with granola and fruit? Oatmeal? Ice cream? Macaroni and cheese? Fried rice? Chili?


My favorite meal in a bowl is chicken-rice-egg-corn. It sounds icky and it looks icky, but it is SUPREME DELICIOUSNESS. I make one of the larger-size bags of brown rice (the kind that cooks in a bag), and I add a cup of cooked barbecue-sauced chicken breast cut into little pieces, a can of Niblets sweet corn, and four scrambled eggs, and I heat it all up in a skillet. And then I add, like, a FISTFUL of salt. It is so, so yummy.

My second favorite meal in a bowl is soup. I have a good autumn soup recipe (recently I've been leaving out the broccoli and putting in a can of black beans and a can of chickpeas, and it is even more good and autumny).

I hope some of you will say your favorite meal in a bowl is cereal, because otherwise I am going to feel a little awkward about using a cereal-sponsored post to write about soup. Oh: I CAN say that my favorite BREAKFAST meal in a bowl is cereal, for sure! (Unless I am eating leftover chicken-egg-rice-corn...)



To enter the giveaway, leave a comment on this post by Monday, October 25, 2010 about your favorite meal in a bowl. Entrants must be U.S. residents at least 18 years old.

For a second entry, you can:
  • Tweet about this post with a link to it (and put your tweet URL in a separate comment below), or
  • Blog about this post with a link to it (and put your blog post URL in a separate comment below)

Sweepstakes ends 5 PM EST on October 25, 2010.

My favorite meal in a bowl actually IS cereal. Partly because I eat almost everything else from a plate... but really! Cereal and bowls are just such a lovely natural pairing.

Misty said...

I like a big bowl of spaghetti. Yum!

eatmewithcake said...

My favorite meal in a bowl is soup, especially this time of year!

Marie Green said...

I actually DO eat cereal (in a bowl!) almost every day. I do really like cereal.

We like to do burrito bowls ala Chipotle. We use rice, taco meat, lettuce, cheese, salsa, cooked corn (we freeze our own, so that's what we use), and sour cream/avocado if we have it on hand. Mix it all up in a bowl and YUM. Though, unfortch, not as good as Chipotle. (How I wish I could duplicate their barbacoa at home!)

Mimi said...

Mmmm your chicken-egg bowl thingy sounds good. Will have to try that.

I make a "southwestern" type bowl that includes rice, chicken, black beans, canned corn, avocado, sour cream and salsa. It's easy and good.

missris said...

My favorite meal in a bowl is this vegetarian 3-bean chili that to me embodies fall. I've been making it a lot lately--delish!

Nowheymama said...

I make your soup all the time. I made some and froze it for when the baby was born. We ate it before he arrived. :)

SallyG said...

Does a bread bowl count? My very favorite (especially in the Fall/Winter) is broccoli cheese soup in a sourdough bread bowl. Mmmmmmm. I also like Chicken Tortilla Soup with cheese, sour cream, avacado and cilantro toppers.

Oh, and cereal - OF COURSE. ;-)

Mary said...

My favorite meal is a big bowl of stuffing with cheese. Yum.

St said...

My favorite thing to eat out of bowl is ramen. We got those bowls like they used in Ponyo and that makes it really fun!
Second best is cereal for sure.

Becs said...

My favorite bowl meal is also slightly gross-sounding! I mix instant mashed potatoes (garlic, preferably) with canned corn, canned green beans, and tuna. Delicious, and no extra pan cleaning!

Jenn said...

I love to make yogurt parfaits in a bowl. Vanilla yogurt + Fruit + granola (and then layer again) It's my favorite breakfast for sure.

Mami2jcn said...

I love oatmeal!

Barb @ getupandplay said...

Ice cream. :) And cereal (which I swear I eat at least twice a day).

kakaty said...

Homemade chicken noodle soup. Or ice cream. Or cereal. Or really just about anything in a bowl is yumy.

Meggan said...

Cereal! Or macaroni and cheese. I will never understand why some people persist on serving that on a plate. It is BUILT for a bowl.

janet said...

Lately I am into soup. In fact I might go get some for lunch right now!

Casper said...

Oatmeal is my favorite meal in a bowl, but it has to include a huge scoop of peaut butter.

EL said...

I love a big bowl of chili with cornbread. Unfortunately, I live in Florida, so it is usually too hot for chili.

Megan said...

Cereal or mac and cheese. I agree, mac should NEVER be served on a plate. It should also never be eaten with a spoon.

You know those variety packs of cereal? Why don't they make those with only the good (read:sugary) varieties? I mean, I know I've seen that before, but it is never at my grocery store.

Anonymous said...

Definitely, beef stew with cornbread. Sometimes, most of the time, I add some cheese. It melts perfectly.

Spaghettios. Enough said!

Melissa H said...

Yogurt and granola. Hands down. Must say, the chicken/rice/egg etc thing sounds kind of awful but I'll trust you.

Elizabeth said...

For sure cereal. I think I could eat cereal for every meal for the rest of my life.

beyond said...

cereal and soup are my favorite bowl foods.

I hope it works well enough.

#6 on the Threatdown said...

As for my favorite food in a bowl? These days it is usually some form of ice cream, or if I am being healthy, a soup. But a favorite from my childhood is rice and soy sauce, a little butter too. Simple as that. And now I must go make some. YUM!

Tammigirl said...

My favorite food in a bowl tonight is beef stew. Last night it was hearty chili. Night before last it was my amazing macaroni and cheese.

VirginiaMom said...

Chili! Or any of my mom's homemade soups!

clueless but hopeful mama said...

Plain, greek-style yogurt, with honey, cut up apples, berries (if I can get 'em), sprinkled with granola on top.

Makes me want breakfast NOW!

Jana said...

This time of year, I like soup. My kids get tired out of it, but I could eat it everyday.

Emily said...

Chicken and dumplings. Closely followed by cereal, of course.

Jennifer said...

My favorite meal in a bowl is my grandma's homemade vegetable beef soup!

Can't go wrong with cereal. Or yogurt with cereal mixed in. (I really like cereal.)

Betty N said...

Since I eat cereal every morning, that is my favorite meal to eat in a bowl.

I like cereal in very small bowls to avoid soggy cereal. In big bowls I like ice cream and/or asian rice bowls.

Agreed on the oatmeal -- yum! I cook in fruit and raisins and then add milk (and sometimes protein powder) so it really is a meal in a bowl!

Anonymous said...

My favorite meal to eat in a bowl would be cereal...I think my entire family would take cereal for any meal on any day..we LOVE the stuff!

I love, love, love Frosted Flakes and I eat them in a bowl most of the time. However, sometimes I just eat them straight from the box.

My favorite meal in a bowl is layered plain macaroni noodles, then chili, then cheese, sour cream, & fresh cilantro. Yummy!

Shari said...

Other than cereal, I love to make instant mashed potatoes - the flavored kind in a box - and throw a handful of cooked broccoli in, and a bunch of cheese. Yummy - like the best part of a stuffed baked potato without the skin in the way!

Danielle said...

My favorite breakfast food in a bowl is oatmeal or special k with fruits and yogurt if i'm dieting that day lol

I do love my cereal (Frosted Mini-Wheats, plenty of 1% milk, and a splash of half-and-half for decadence) but my favorite things to eat in a bowl are the crazy concoctions my husband makes. He combines things that sound scary in discussion but always taste delicious, possibly because they tend to involve unhealthy stuff like sausage.

Kelly Massman said...

Leek and potato soup! Thanks!

becky said...

soup! tom kha or homemade chicken and rice. but i do love my cereal as well. and my husband eats cereal for dessert so there is that.

Darcy said...

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.

Deb said...

My favorite meal in a bowl is spaghetti with meat sauce...pure comfort!

Anonymous said...

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.

Mine is a rice bowl full of beef fried rice and orange chicken.

Lexiquin said...

When I'm really cold, I like a good hot bowl of stew or soup, or some chili or beans. If I don't want anything hot, I like to have Kellogg's Bran Flake or yogurt with fruit. 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.
