    Had my last bowl of cereal....Uncle Sam's brand, in September of 2012. For years my breakfast was that plus blue-berries or t steel cut oats with blueberries with one soft boiled egg.

        Chocolate Brownie Chex

        1 box plain rice chex
        1 bar dark chocolate
        2 oz cocoa butter
        cocoa

        Melt together chocolate and cocoa butter. Drizzle over the rice chex while stirring. Sift the cocoa over the top. Allow to set up in a cool place. Serve to sophisticated kids.

          Yes! Cracklin' Oat Bran. Man that stuff was good!

          And Chex was good, too. I used to eat rice Chex for dinner often. Another favorite was Life.

            I was introduced to Cracklin' Oat Bran by a mom of six way back to just before I had First - she said to start eating some as soon as I was allowed to eat solids after delivery, and absolutely not to forget copious amounts of water/watered juice, as the bran was going to expand. She said it made the first poo after a delivery SOOOO much easier.

            Of course I believed her, as I had already heard my own mother's story of the First Postpartum Poo - she lied to the doctors that she had already made one, who then discharged her - and then my brilliant doctor-hating mom discovered the joys of serious constipation so soon after... I had no wish to sit on the pot howling 'cause I couldn't go and everything down there hurt anyway.

            (Mom did tell me the moral of the story - Do. Not. Lie. To. Your. OB.)

            So Cracklin' Oat Bran came with me to the LDR of each Crabblett.

              Oh that is really funny. I can't imagine that it actually worked, though. Any time I've eaten copious harsh fiber like that I've gotten completely stopped up.

              Even though I never had children, I think I understand that first poo thing. The first time after my hysterectomy was horrible. Basically, all you can do is sit there and wait for it to fall out on its own. It's a looooonnnnngggg wait.

                I cannot stop giggling...! Never had a hysterectomy, but yup, same procedure.

                The bran worked like a charm on me, tho. Made things ummm, "soft". Honest.
