Cereal in the Morning

I love cereal. I've always loved it. I could eat cereal every meal of the day sometimes. In fact, I'm sure there have been days when I have!

There are times when I like the sugary opulence of Captain Crunch or Cocoa Puffs, but usually I prefer the plain cereals; Cheerios, Rice Krispies, Corn Chex, Oatmeal. I also like Raisin Bran, granola and Grapenuts. My dad is the same way - he eats the same breakfast with the same cereals every day. He used to mix Raisin Bran and Grapenuts (as I recall), but now he eats his 100% Natural granola.

I remember when we were kids, we used to beg to be allowed to have cereal for dinner when Mom and Dad were going out (our other favorite choices for those nights were pot pies or TV Dinners, but I personally never liked those as much because they had vegetables and things in them that I didn't like). I was delighted in college when the cafeteria installed huge cereal dispensers that stayed available to us at every meal, not just breakfast! Yay!

What cereals do you like? What is your favorite breakfast? What breakfast foods remind you of your childhood?

As I finish up my bran flakes with dried blueberries on top, I salute all of us cereal-lovers everywhere!

Our family is obsessed with cereal! I could eat it all day too. I think Michael is even more obsessed then me. My favorites are Capt'n Crunch, Grape Nuts, Rice Krispies and Wheat Chex :) We ate alot of cereal growing up but since my parents owned a bakery (did you know this about me?) I also had my great share of donuts. Pretty lucky for a kid I guess.

I see no other commenters on their cereals of choice. Boo! Love that you are blogging more :) I need to get back on the horse.
