All signs are pointing toward dishing about cereal.
First, while Haley was in the hospital, it’s one of the only things she would eat.
Second, my friend John’s fairly recent Facebook status read, “mixing three different cereals into one bowl for breakfast. I’m such a grain gourmet in the morning.”
Third, I came across The Cereal Project, an online database of U.S. cereals. Hoo ah.
Since we’ve had to tighten the reigns on our food budget, one of the items that has been hit the hardest is the amount of boxed cereal I buy. Not meat, not cheese, not snacks. Nope. Cereal! Seeing how much it costs these days, you can clearly understand why it’s one of the first to get the axe.
But I love cereal.
I love cereal because it’s easy, it’s filling, and requires no cooking. I can actually recall the first few months after Haley was born, eating cereal not only for breakfast, but also lunch and dinner. Standing up, of course.
And I’m not picky. I love all kinds with milk or just in the palm of my hand to snack on. I love granola on top of yogurt. I love corn flakes mashed up and used as breadcrumbs. I love healthy bran flakes, and yes, I love the sugar laden variety that makes gashes in the roof of my mouth.
I love cereal. It rocks.
…I’m eating a bowl right now.
What about you? Thumbs up or thumbs down for cereal?
