How goes it? Did you have an extra-long weekend thanks to the holiday? We had a great weekend together as a family â€“ itâ€™s nice to spend that extra time together, especially since Iâ€™ll be traveling a lot for work next week.
Hey, whatâ€™s your Halloween costume going to be? If you have a pet or kiddo, whatâ€™s their costume? Henry is going to be a puppy â€“ every time I put his costume on, he starts saying, â€˜Woof woof woof!â€™ and crawling around on all fours. My mommy friends and I are having a kid costume party â€“ itâ€™s gonna be too much adorableness for one room. I donâ€™t have a costume this year. Normally, we rent costumes from a shop, but with the Half Ironman on the big Halloween weekend, I doubt weâ€™ll have any adult parties to attendâ€¦ Boooo.
Anyway â€“ back to breakfast.
Itâ€™s #CerealLoversWeek. Donâ€™t you love it how practically everything has a day or week?! I love any excuse to celebrate the things weâ€™re crazy about, so these random holidays are fine by me. I hardly ever have straight cereal as breakfast â€“ but itâ€™s my #1 go-to treat snack. I like sweeter cereals to help tame my sweet tooth. You can usually find me snacking on Chocolate Chex straight out of the bag at nighttime while we watch back-to-back-to-back episodes of Downton Abbey (soooo good!).
BUT â€“ if I do have cereal for breakfast, I use it to make BANGING French toast.
I used Cinnamon Chex (I separate out the flavored Chex from the plain rice ones to maximize flavor) to coat French toast before fryingâ€¦ Tada! Super crunchy. So delicious. This would be an awesome Sunday brunch treat for the holidays.
Side note: just for disclosure purposes, I have an ongoing professional relationship with General Mills, who makes Chex, but they didnâ€™t specifically sponsor this post. I just really love the idea of an entire week dedicated to the awesomeness of cereal. And I buy Chex by the cartload (seriously, you should see my pantry).
Hereâ€™s my favorite way to use cereal in a savory way:
Breaded Baked Tofu <— ridiculously good, especially with ketchup.
Iâ€™m off to go feed the ducks (I just wrote â€œfeed the f**ks accidentally â€“ hah) with Henry and DadHTP. Itâ€™s our favorite group activity. <3 <3 <3
Have an awesome day! (Can you tell that Iâ€™m in a stellar mood??)
