When I was young, I ate cereal just about every day. Love to all types of cereal including Raisin Bran, Lucky Charms, life, tricks, Cookie Crisp, and the list goes on and on. I would have it for breakfast because it was quick and easy and delicious and sometimes I would have another Bowl when I get home from school as a snack to tide me over until dinner.
As a kid, you really didn't have to worry about things like salmonella. Every now and then if the milk was old you'd see that starting to curdle in the in the bowl. But with all the kids in our family, (seven) we went through a couple of gallons of milk a day so we didn't have to worry about that either. Maybe I'll just have a bagel today for breakfast.
