buttered cheerios


Carter only happily devours strawberries or cookies these days. My life is a constant hunt to find something he'll sit & eat in portions more than a single pincer grasp.

Enter: Buttered Cheerios.

How I discovered them, simplified? My husband's cousin mentioned them in facebook photo comment to my sister-in-law. Mr. Google did the rest.

Cheerios have fiber, protein and vitamins. They're easy to digest and low in sugar, so they're a healthy snack.

You can transform them into a (slightly less healthy) addiction for your toddler by throwing a tablespoon of butter and some salt in a pan and sauteeing them up. Keep the heat on medium and stir until they're all coated and toasty. Cross fingers. Close eyes. Offer to picky toddler.

I love Oprah as much as the next chick. But have you caught these past two shows - with all the goodbye performances? You'd think she was dying. I don't think Michael Jackson's funeral was even as extravagant. I have it playing on my DVR right now, and I'm fully expecting the President of the United States to be the next surprise performance (and my brain's playing with the possibility that she's a bigger star than he is). The woman can only take so much flattery until she's all humbled out; she's exhausted, leave her alone already.

In other news, I wish Extreme Couponing would just go off the air. Everyone's doing it, so all my researched, couponed free stuff is always sold out. Doesn't lassoing a small child into the store with me give me dibbs? Just sayin.'

  1. First, I could not agree more with you on the mega farewell Oprah is having. I think she is great but, I was telling my husband that she gets praised like a God so is so mega huge. Crazy almost.

    Secondly, I have never heard of buttered cheerios. That sounds delicious for me as well as D. She is getting tired of plain cheerios so I might have to give it a go!

  2. Hey thanks for the idea about the buttered cheerios!! i am definitely going to try that for Jacob.

  3. I've never heard of buttered cheerios! Definitely going to try that. And I agree about the extreme couponing show! It's ruining it for everyone's who's been doing it for a while now. Stores are starting to limit the amount of coupons you can use. Not cool.

  4. mmm, Buttered Cheerios. Sounds delicious.

  5. @Miranda hehe ok so i made it sound like i've been couponing awhile, but i was inspired by the show & now i just want everyone ELSE to stop. hahaha i'm a hypocrite.

  6. @Ruby i know he'll like them, they're so easy, too :)

  7. @Casey Martinez it's so extreme! what are they going to do when she actually does die? coordinate a flash mob across the entire planet earth?
