Seriously, I think cereal is one of the greatest things God ever invented.  It is the perfect food.  Light enough for a bedtime snack and satisfying enough for breakfast.  You can eat it with or without milk.  There are so many varieties that it can actually shut your decision making process down in the entire aisle of choices.  I love them all. (OK, maybe not all.  The only chocolate I want in the morning is in my coffee or on a donut I will later regret; NOT on or in my cereal.)

Super Sugar Crisp, which is now called Super Golden Crisp... because you know that hides the fact that there are like 40 spoon fulls of sugar in it, is a longstanding fave.

Cheerios are a healthy standby, especially with a sliced banana.

I could, and have, eat cereal for dinner every night.  When it's my turn to cook and my husband isn't home or there are leftovers I can give to him alone, the kids and I pour some cereal.  I am most definitely passing on my Cerealaholicism to them.

At any given time I have 6-10 boxes of cereal on top of my refrigerator.  We have a terrible habit of leaving what might be enough for just one bowl in the bag, in the box, on top of the fridge.  When you can't remember when you purchased that box; it's time to toss it. 

We all love Wheatabix, which is one of the only cereals I can eat super soggy - because that's really the only option you have. 

If you're going for crunch and sturdiness in milk, I highly recommend Shredded Wheat in any variety although any of the Chex family do a great job of maintaining crunch while wet.

I just tried some Kashi Lean cluster something or other and it was good enough I broke my 1 bowl rule and had 2!  Hey, I had dinner like 6.5 hours ago.  I'm a little hungry.

Cereal is often a dessert and I really feel pretty good about it because of all those spray on vitamins.  What a great thing cereal is.

What's your favorite cereal!?
