Bowl Me Over

Question: What was your favorite Saturday morning activity when you were a kid?
Answer: Munching on giant bowls of cereal while watching cartoons.
Big. Giant. Bowls.

Nothing was more fun on a Saturday than waking and sleepily wandering down to the TV room to claim first dibs on which cartoons to watch, then pouring bowls of sugar, er...cereal for breakfast. Froot Loops or Apple Jacks for me, Cap'n Crunch or Count Chocula for my brother. By the time the usual run of cartoons was over, the sugar kicked in and we scampered off to the backyard or the basement to plot our next treasure hunt or play Hot Wheels or climb trees. I pretty much do the same thing now, changed up just a bit. Still love watching toons. The cereal is granola and the milk is usually almond or soy. Love treasure hunts and Hot Wheels, but the tree-climbing thing...not gonna happen. ;)
On my gift list this year...a Vegan cereal bowl!
