I've moved to JenFul.com

Quaker Oats giveaway

In all the excitement of this weekend, I forgot that I have four Quaker Oats prize packs to give away! Then I promise I will stop talking about oats and groats and marsey-doats and doesey-dotes. Each prize is a 1 month supply of Quaker’s heart healthy breakfast products – including Old Fashioned Quaker Oats, Quaker Instant Oatmeal, Quaker Oatmeal To Go and Quaker Oatmeal Squares.

To enter, leave a haiku about oatmeal in the comments below by 11:59pm on Saturday, November 15th. A haiku is a three line poem in which the first and third lines contain 5 syllables and the second line contains 7 syllables. Four winners will be drawn randomly, not by the quality of their haikus. However, if it is not a true haiku, you will be disqualified. Count your syllables, people!

To inspire you, here’s a pic of Roni, Mo and me in the taxi on our way to the Quaker Oats headquarters, are faces beaming with thoughts of oatmeal. Let us be your muses!

Roni, Mo and PastaQueen

Win or lose, you can also click this link to get a coupon for $1.00 off any two packages of Quaker Oatmeal. You must be using Internet Exploder for it to work though.

so early she rose

before her children and spouse

instant oatmeal was

non existant then.

but oatmeal is nutricious

and so delicious

so she would get up

at four a.m. to prepare

the oats for her kids.

ungrateful brats–they

never said thank you, mommy!

instead, eyes bleary

they shovelled it down,

brushed their teeth, put on their clothes

and went to the fields

to begin working.

ah, the farming life! i am

so glad i got out.

but now that i’m grown

i would like to say THANK YOU
