Yesterday morning, I had a Rice Krispie treat for breakfast. (I probably would have fed the same thing to AC if the Geek wouldn’t have flipped out.)
(I made a couple of batches Sunday night for the school Halloween carnival. Yes, I know that’s not very fancy, but I’m on deadline. Anyway, I’ve decided that fancy cupcakes decorated like spiders and dipped chocolate bat cookies are made simply to impress the Other Mothers. It’s a competition sometimes to see who makes the fanciest treats for class, and I don’t have the inclination to participate. The kids don’t care – they just want something tasty and Rice Krispie treats fit that bill. The Other Mothers can fight it out for the title of Best Baker. I concede. Anyhoo…)
Rice Krispie treats are tasty, so I held one out of the batch for myself, and I had it for breakfast yesterday with a glass of milk. I’ve done this before, and the Geek always acts like Bill Cosby’s wife in the “Chocolate Cake for Breakfast” skit.
I don’t agree.
Rice Krispies are a breakfast cereal. You pour them in a bowl, sprinkle some sugar over the top and pour in the milk. Millions of people all over the world do this every morning.
So let’s examine my breakfast:
Marshmallows – which are just sugar and corn starch. (Fat free!)
What’s the difference?
If I add a piece of fruit, I have my well-balanced breakfast as advertised on TV.
Even if you want to object to the marshmallows, there are plenty of cereals out there with marshmallows in there (and dog only knows what’s been done to them when they went into the box. Lucky Charms are just gross.).
So you tell me: Breakfast or junk food?
