Cheerios Marshmallow Treats

As a dessert marshmallow treats are incredibly underrated.  I, personally, have always made them with Cheerios, because I feel that rice crispies as a cereal are nutritionally bereft without the milk.  Cheerios, on the other hand, come in a variety of flavours, and make at least a nod to nutrition with some fibre and protein content.

Comfort Me, Food!

My week hasn’t gone the way I planned, as clearly evidenced by my Wednesday blog post ending up getting done on Friday night.  I had a lot of work to do, meetings scheduled, and meals to cook.

I am not even writing the same blog post I had originally planned, but I will get back to it at a later date. All because I am stuck in bed. The worst part of having my schedule messed up was my son missing his chosen birthday dinner because of me. (Although if you check this week’s Meal Plan, you will see I am hopeful of a second, more successful attempt, on Thursday.) Continue reading
