"What is this?" Xander eyed the bowl suspiciously.

"It's breakfast."

"It's what's leftover from the bottom of the boxes."

Andrew held up a Tupperware container filled with the same mix. "No, I mixed it myself. There's dates and ginger in there too."

Xander pushed the bowl away. "That is not food."

"You wanted something different."

"Different from what's here." Xander made an all compassing motion. "I want a taste of home. Is Cap'n Crunch too much to ask for?"

Andrew snagged the rejected bowl, added milk and spoke through a mouthful of cereal. "Next time you'll be getting smoked kippers."
