A Recipe

&

A Love Affair




Being laid up for the last 6 weeks has kind of put a halt on my cooking, baking, and kitchen mess making. I'm sorry I haven't posted any recipes lately.



I have came up with a great new recipe to share with you all!
At the same time I have to admit a love affair that I have been having for years and years.


I LOVE CHEERIOS!


I love them right out of the box

I love them with sliced bananas

I have been known to steal them right off the high chair tray from babies.

Yes! It's true!

I love them just about any way you can serve them up!

I


This is me and a box of Cheerios.
When Cheerios and I had just started dating.


This is me waiting for a date with Cheerios

I have always loved plain Cheerios. Then I fell in love with Team Cheerios. They were a mix of regular, honey nut, multi grain and frosted. They were soon discontinued and I was so sad by this event. I bought all the boxes of Team Cheerios I could find and ate them until they were gone.
I know!!!!!
Your saying to yourself "I don't know why she was single for so long?"
They really were my new favorite.
When Team Cheerios was all gone I had to go crawling back to my old flame..............Plain Cheerios with sliced bananas.


So when the new banana flavored Cheerios variety came out I was excited to try it.


It was a good, but a little too banana-ie for me. I don't think this flavor of Cheerios and I will be dating long term. We will just have to be friends.


Then I had an idea.................


An arrangement that use to work out for me years ago after Team Cheerios got discontinued.

Buying multiple boxes and mixing them!
Not a new concept I know.
Seinfeld made it popular in the 90's



I have always been a fan of mixing Cheerios but with just one person eating them 3 or 4 boxes mixed together.............IS A LOT OF CHEERIOS!



But my new banana flavored Cheerios needed friends.
I bought 2 more boxes


Mixed them all together in a large tub.

Then enjoyed one of the best bowls of Cheerios I have had in a long time.

Of course The Hubs came in to the kitchen in the middle of my mixing. He wanted to know what crazy ass thing I was doing now with all those boxes of Cheerios.


Yeah that's right!

Who's crazy now?

I do believe he had 2 bowls this morning!



So this is my one armed recipe for you this week......................


1 Large box of Plain Cheerios


1 Small box of Honey Nut Cheerios


1 small box of Banana Nut flavored Cheerios


Mix


Love in a bowl!

You could so have your own show on Food Network. I think that would make for a great dinner!

Now I know why we are friends. You are hilarious! Love the recipe. I guess I need to make a trip to the store to get the "ingredients." Adorable pics of you as a little one, btw.

XO,

I just knew that we were kindered spirits! I LOVE my Cheerios too, straight out of the box or with milk and a little sugar. My friends know, I do not answer the door or the phone after I pour milk on my O's until I am done with the bowl, cause I dont like me the soggy o's, lol. My husband eats, shhh, honey bunches of oats every single day of his life, just yesterday I said,hon why not have a bowl of Cheerios instead of your cereal today, he replied, I prefer not to eat cardboard, GASP, how could he? He just doesnt understand how much he is missing out, we know!
PS the pics are adorable, and if I showed you a pic of me at that age, there is a definite resemblance. Sue

Mixing them is a stroke of genius... do you remember the mixed berry cheerios a few years back? They were discontinued, and I CRIED for days!!

I'm right there with ya, I love Cheerios! I eat 'em almost everyday, and when I was a kid they were my fav after school snack while watching Gilligan's Island. You need to patent your recipe - it's genius!
