Yesterday afternoon, I grabbed a modest bowl of dry out Cheerios for a snack too had a flashback – I remembered my mom making hot buttered cheerios equally a kid. I haven’t idea nearly them inwards decades.

Our missy said i of her friends was but talking nearly them, that she too her household unit of measurement brand them all the fourth dimension – they beloved them. Of course, my hubby couldn’t human face to induce them then I made a batch today.
For today’s batch, I fried the Cheerios inwards butter on the stove amongst a piffling body of body of water salt. So good! A crunchy, salty winner!
