Cereal for Dinner: Oh-So-Good

by Courtney on June 28, 2010

Tonight’s dinner was not at all pre-planned, since the hubby was supposed to be working late and we’re supposed to be having a softball game at 7:45.  Well, the hubby did not have to work late (which was certainly ok!), and it looks like we have some rain on the way, which might mean a canceled game (which would also be ok since it is HOT out).  I needed something easy, and the box of cereal I bought earlier today has seriously been calling my name all afternoon!

So cereal for dinner it was!

1/2 Quaker Oatmeal Squares (best cereal EVER) & 1/2 Kashi Heart to Heart with some vanilla almond milk & fresh strawberries

Since the oatmeal squares are a little higher in calories, I like to incorporate another cereal with them that is a little lighter — that way, you get a lighter calorie bowl, and more “bang for your buck”, while still enjoying the taste of the good stuff.  You can’t beat it! :)

While I was prepping my cereal bowl, I got a strong hankering for some Blizzard Butter…so addicted to this stuff!  So I toasted a piece of rye bread & topped it with the white chocolate yumminess & a little red raspberry jam, just for fun. :-P

I am totally LOVING my new placemats – they make taking my pictures so much more FUN!

In case you missed it earlier, be sure to check out the upcoming “Fashion Friday – Readers Edition!”

I’m really looking forward to hearing (and possibly seeing!) all of your responses!

Question for the Night:

What’s your favorite cereal??

Well, there’s no secret on mine!  Quaker Oatmeal Squares are DA BOMB – but my Kashi Heart to Heart & Kashi Go Lean come in a very close 2nd. :)

Loove Quaker Oat Squares! Have you had the cinnamon kind? My favorite cereals are Kashi GoLean Crunch (the honey almond flax kind) and Honey Bunches of Oats! I’m also a fan of good old Mini Wheats.

I like Kashi Go Lean Crunch and Special K Vanilla Almond… mmmm.

But I adore Quaker Oatmeal Squares. I actually keep a baggy of them at work for a snack if I’m needing a good carb fix. I think my dad got me hooked on them when I was little…
