#176 The Case of Ch-ch-ch-chia Cereal

Chia seed is hot, hot, hot right now. Hotter, I think, than when Chia Pets were all the rage. Do you remember Chia Pets? Clay figurines that, if spread with chia seeds and kept moist, sprouted "fur". Those little beasties rocketed to popularity in 1982 to the TV commercial ditty that many of us (tragically) can still repeat: "Ch-ch-ch-chia!".

The big difference between chia seed popularity then and now is, today we eat the darn things. The seeds I mean. Not the pets.

Check out my recipe for a tasty, quick-as-a-flash, healthy oatmeal alternative on Killer Crafts & Crafty Killers, a lovely mystery-related blog where I'm so pleased to have guested last month: http://anastasiapollack.blogspot.ca/2017/03/cooking-with-clorisguest-character.html.
