For my first anniversary, the Mr. and I decided to go to Las Vegas. I had only been through Vegas a couple of times. As we were driving he kept telling me, “Don’t talk to anyone and don’t take anything that anyone hands you.” We arrived and checked into our hotel and walked out onto the strip. We had probably walked 50 feet from the hotel and some lady asked me if I would like free appetizer. Since I love a deal, I jumped at the offer. She gave us some coupons and wasn’t handing out all the other crap that gets handed out on the strip. But as I said yes to her, the Mr. gave me a look, like didn’t tell you not to talk to anyone!!! We headed to the restaurant and got our free appetizer which was a order of crunchy chicken strips. They were so yummy and I’ve been trying to create them in a healthy way since. Enter Honey Bunches of Oats Cereal!!!

The inspiration hit the other day as I was at Wal-Mart pursuing the cereal aisle. Honey Bunches of Oats Honey Roasted and with Almonds have always been one of my favorite cereals and there was a newHoney Bunches of Oats Gluten Free Chocolate that I had to try. Oh and I saw some adorable Kung Fu Panda Cereal and Crunch O’s that would be perfect for the kids. That way everyone has something they love for breakfast.
