Breakfast Love


First of all, I proved yesterday that I can be sustained on breakfast items alone. Satisfied, no. Sustained, yes.

I started out the day with what I like to consider both breakfast and dessert because it is so delicious, Cocoa Pebbles. There is something about this yummy cereal. Is it the chocolate milk that is left when I am done eating the tiny pebbles of chocolate? Is it the way that a perfect ratio of milk to cereal makes for the perfect bite? At any rate, this was my breakfast followed by a Diet Coke...in this case, I am referring to Diet Coke as a breakfast item because I usually like to have one before the ten o'clock hour. When I was teaching, I would crack open that Diet Coke at 7 AM, so I have made improvements.

Thursdays are the one day that I have a small window to grab lunch somewhere between pre-school buildings. Usually, I stop at one of the multiple delis in the area, but yesterday, a co-worker brought in bagels and cream cheese. Perfect. I would not have to stop for a sandwich somewhere. So, breakfast item number three down the hatch.

I was ravenous after pre-school about 4PM so I got home and made a bowl of Fruity Pebbles. Not as delicious as Cocoa Pebbles, but still a fabulous thing. Then, Tim and I had some errands to do after work and we were going to grab some supper, but by the time we returned home, it was time for me to meet my friend Courtney at Starbucks for a coffee treat. So, breakfast item number five, a huge latte with Vanilla flavoring.

And so, I lived on breakfast alone yesterday. I love breakfast food, but I realized that I can't continue this pattern because I have a feeling that there is not much nutritional value in that stoneage treat Cocoa or Fruity Pebbles.

Have you tried the new Marshmallow Pebbles? They're not that good. The "pebbles" are puffed up rice that get soggy very fast, and the marshmallows taste just like the ones in Lucky Charms, so there's nothing new there. I just got a box of Crunch Berries. It had been a while since I had them, and I'd forgotten how freakin' good they are.

I am not much of a risk-taker when it comes to cereal. I only like Frosted Flakes... and that's about it.

Also, I don't drink the milk at the bottom of my cereal bowl. Too sweet.
