Cheerios, our Cereal con Cariño and Quick Family Breakfast Story

My siblings and I grew up with two hard working parents, and as much as we loved my mom’s Mexican cooking of homemade flour tortillas or spicy chilaquiles with lots of melty cheese, that just wasn’t always possible for breakfast.

A lot of mornings our go to breakfast was cereal, and a family favorite has always been Cheerios. My parents showed us love and care because they made sure we always had a good breakfast. We always had cereal there, ready to go for a quick and satisfying meal.
