Well for obvious reasons, I can't really take pictures of Green Beer, or fun St. Patrick's day parties this year. But at breakfast this morning, I did come upon some obvious inspiration for a good March 17th picture of the day ... one of my favorite cereals.
... plus, to top it off, after doing duty as my "model", this little single serving bowl will also double nicely as a potential snack when I get hungry later. ;-)
I've been eating lucky charms for years now ... ever since I was a kid. I remember one of my brothers wasn't quite such a fan though. He used to refer to them as "yucky charms". Funny, I've never found them yucky at all. I do recall though, that this was a cereal that required a plan for eating it properly. You gotta make sure to conserve your marsh mellows. There's nothing worse than having two or three spoon fulls of the actual cereal left, but no marsh mellows.
Now-a-days, with 6 (soon to be 7) kids, the leprechaun is not a regular visitor to our house ... even though we still get the cereal on almost every trip to the grocery store. You see, I'm a "mean dad". Instead of buying Magically Delicious Lucky Charms, I usually head straight for those big old bags of generic "Marsh Mellow Treasures" or "Magic Stars" ... you know, the ones that cost 1/3 as much as the name brand, but contain twice as much cereal.
... lol, ok that's a rant for another time.
I hope you all have a FuN St. Paddy's day ... and if you have the opportunity to drink, be safe and give someone your car keys first.
