Delicious Cinnamon Sugar Toast

So earlier this week we talked about a healthy dish involving cabbage, apples and bacon. Today’s post is about a super fast, but delicious (and yes, not quite so healthy) way to have toast. This is a flashback to when I was a child and mom would let us have cinnamon sugar toast for a special treat. 🙂 (Yep, there was a limit on how many pieces we could have!)

All you need is bread, a toaster, butter, white sugar and cinnamon.

Mix up some cinnamon and sugar in a small bowl using 1 part cinnamon to 4 parts sugar. For example, use 1 teaspoon of cinnamon and 4 teaspoons of sugar. Pop a piece of bread into the toaster and toast to your desire crispness.

As soon as your toast is done, spread some butter on it so the butter will melt.

Using a spoon, sprinkle the cinnamon sugar mixture onto the toast.

That’s it! Super quick, super easy and super yummy!

You might want to keep a close eye on your cinnamon sugar toast! It will smell so delicious that someone might sneak a bite! 😉

Taste Testing Tuesday #51 – Dinosaur Eggs!

Sorry for the lateness of this post! It’s been one of those days…

Do your kids love dinosaurs? Then I bet they would be excited to see what’s inside of a dinosaur egg! And wouldn’t it be nice if while looking for little dinosaurs that have hatched out of eggs, they also ate some oatmeal? Someone at the Quaker Oats company thought so!

This is a fun way to get your kids excited for breakfast! It’s a really cute idea. Inside the box are individual packets of instant oatmeal that have dinosaur eggs mixed in. But first, be sure to look at the fun facts and riddle on the outside of the packets.

Just in case you have trouble seeing the answer to the riddle…

Empty a packet into a bowl and let the kids see the cool dinosaur eggs.

Add 1/2 Cup of boiling water…


And start looking for dinosaurs! They magically hatch when you stir in the boiling water. Very cool! Here’s a green one…

And we found an orange one…

There’s also a dark red one.

Hopefully the kiddos will be taking bites of oatmeal while they hunt for dinosaurs! Don’t you wonder what a dinosaur tastes like? Do the different colors taste the same or do they have different flavors?

See how many dinosaurs you can find! Breakfast might turn into the favorite meal of the day if you can hunt for dinosaurs! 😉 Have fun and fill up those little bellies with dinosaurs!
