Sugary Bliss

Saturday morning, circa 1976.
Lying on the floor in my pj's in front of the television with my bowl of cereal.
On the TV: Bugs and Daffy in Loony Tunes, Scooby Doo, Land of the Lost, Shazam and Isis, Fat Albert and American Bandstand, with three fabulous minutes of Schoolhouse Rock! between each show.
In my cereal bowl: Count Chocula, Lucky Charms, Alpha-Bits, Cocoa Puffs or Froot Loops. I preferred my sugary cereal with little marshmallow bits, but they weren't required. As long as the cereal was sweet.

Reading a post about peanut butter and jelly sandwiches on Matt Bites the other day got me reminiscing about my favorite foods as a child. My poor parents! Pretty much all I wanted to eat was cereal, PB & J and spaghetti.

Thankfully I've managed to get over the pickiness of my childhood.

Anyone remember Mug-O-Lunch? Pin It

I remember Mug-o-Lunch.

But I'd rather not.
