It’s been awhile since I’ve purchased breakfast cereal, but some mornings I wake up and think, I’d really like a bowl of cereal this morning. Of course, as a kid, I liked all the sugary ones. Some of my favorites were Frosted Flakes (of course), Apple Jacks and Captain Crunch. Now I prefer Honey nut Cheerios, or Frosted Mini Wheats.
Sometimes I buy those assortments of small boxes so that I can pick something different every morning if I want to. They are also handy because you don’t have to worry about the cereal going bad if you don’t eat it quickly.
Cereal can be very handy if you are short on time too. It’s much faster to pour cereal and milk into a bowl that it is to prepare eggs, or breakfast meats, or pancakes and such. Those things are better left to a day off of work when you aren’t so rushed.
I also love hot breakfast cereal, having grown up on oatmeal or Farina. There is nothing better on a cold morning than a piping hot bowl of oatmeal. There are so many toppings for oatmeal too. You can top it with honey, or brown sugar, or raisins or fruit.
