Little house on the Prairie kind of morning

When I was at the store yesterday I spotted this.

I haven't eaten cereal for breakfast in years - the occasional bowl of oatmeal? sure - but never cold cereal.

But I was intrigued by the amount of Omega 3's and that it contained flax - something I have been wanting to include in my diet.

And it did make me feel very old fashioned that the first ingredient was sorghum. I think the last time I saw anything about sorghum was in the Little House on the Prairie books.

And the cereal was pretty yummy. It had a slight malty taste and just a hint of sweetness.

Topped with banana slices.

And the fact that the cereal were shaped in teeny tiny balls? Very cute.

I will definitely come in handy to have this cereal in the cabinet on mornings I don't want to cook.

I have also been trying to include more beans into my diet hence the chili I made yesterday. And since I cooked my own beans - I had a lot left over.

I almost always store things in freezer bags otherwise if I can't easily identify what is in the freezer - it tends to stay in there for years.

And now I will have a ready supply of beans for things such as tacos, soups or salads.

I was going to get a bunch of stuff done today - but it is working out to be a lazy Saturday. 

I might make it outside after I bolster myself with caffeine.
