I was in Food Lion today to pick up a container of cottage cheese that I needed for lasagna. In my dash to the dairy case, I happened to notice they carried Barbara's Peanut Butter Puffins. My favorite cereal ever! Then I noticed the price. $5.69. FIVE DOLLARS AND SIXTY-NINE CENTS! Are you kidding me?
I quickly remembered why I gave up buying cereal. First, I'm too cheap. Second, unless it's organic, chances are that genetically modified corn is an ingredient. Even in Kashi, which was a surprise even though it probably shouldn't have been. Third, I know I can do better.
The point is... we don't miss the cereal. And most of our breakfasts are just as quick in the morning.
Take that, Monsanto!
