That crying you heard in the frozen food aisle wasn't from whiny kids. It was from parents reeling from Kellogg's announcement that a flood in its Atlanta bakery is causing a shortage of products, including Eggo waffles, that might not be restored until the middle of 2010. The link is here but in the meantime we thought we might help the mourning, er, morning routine with a helpful list.

7 other things children should drizzle syrup on while waiting for their waffles:

7 The most annoying noisemaking toy they have. Let them go crazy with the syrup, then sadly explain why it has to be tossed when it curiously goes silent.

6 That 3-year old laptop: Finally, an excuse to get that MacBook Air.

5 Mom's keys: The stickier they are, the harder to lose them.

4 The toothbrush: If that doesn't get them to brush their teeth, nothing will.

3 The alarm clock: Finally, a legitimate excuse for missing that morning meeting.

2 Kevin Faulk's fingers: Without that bobble, Bill Belichick is still a genius.

1 Belichick's playbook: If the pages stuck together, maybe he punts. (Nah)

The Recipe Box Project:

If you want to contribute a recipe to The Recipe Box Project, please write it below. Also tell us where you got it (package box, cookbook, mom, friend -- include the name). We're looking for the kinds of dishes that people grew up on, that were served at family suppers, that tell a story, that are typically New England, or that you brought with you from a far away place to New England. We will print one of the recipes in the Food section once a month. To ask any questions, write to Debra Samuels, who is overseeing this project, at To discuss your recipes, click here.
