I feel like I’ve gone a bit mad. You know how some girls submerge their blues in a pretty dish of pink ice cream? I am no exception but extend past this fact with enough food to feed a massive army. I am too embarrassed to post images of everything food-related for this past weekend but suffice it to say that there were many bottomless bowls of various things spooned over with nutella involved. My pretty little princess in all her wide-eyed optimism came bouncing down the stairs one morning, making a quick bee-line to the fridge and helped herself to a bowl of ice-cream of mammoth proportions. (Mind you she’s itty bitty) and gleefully snuggled close and exclaimed the brilliance of her chosen breakfast. So two things here, D.S.S. would probably intervene for my lack of responsible parenting and her enthusiasm gave way to the next hour of staring at Saturday morning cartoons with an open bag of this chocolate cereal that should quit lying and call itself what it really is: cookie-candy.
This stuff is crazy dangerous. If I ever had kids, I don’t know how I could justify feeding this to them for breakfast….but then again, I stare at my nieces pleading doe-eyes and quickly reconsider. Parenting has got to be some tough stuff. I don’t know how y’all do it!
These represent the better parts of my childhood. (but yet another example of what should be included in the list of “things you should never feed your kids). The label reads a scary calorie and fat content, the ingredient following chocolate is cheese? On the bottom, it clearly states “does not contain pig fat.” Was that ever a thing for my yan yan?
More cilantro, please! (and tying into the shrimp and cilantro theme, too)
