When They Don’t Snap, Crackle or Pop!

I was cleaning out my cupboards and came to an expired box of Rice Crispies. I don’t eat cereal and Scott doesn’t eat this kind. We tried it with the girls and it didn’t go over well. I made a batch of Rice Crispy Squares to use some up since I also found a bag of expired marshmallows. The squares were a disaster and I actually cut the inside of my mouth trying to eat them. I’m half decently competent in the kitchen so I don’t know what went wrong. I’m trying not to dwell too much on it lol.

In my new found frugalness, I no longer toss everything the way I used to. I decided to use the food processor and make a powder so my baby could eat the rice crispies. He just tried them this morning and really liked them.

I wanted to share with you my revelation of the day: Rice Crispy baby mush does not *Snap, Crackle or Pop*!

Today I have to get moving. With littles being sick, and me not feeling so hot, I feel a little behind on things.

Here is my far too ambitious to-do list for the day (in no particular order):

  • Tidy Kitchen
  • Dress Littles
  • Laundry Away
  • Spot Clean Carpet
  • Floor Swept and Spot Cleaned
  • Laundry Room Tidied
  • Grocery List prepared (shopping tonight!)
  • Out for a walk with the littles
  • Plant “Forget Me Nots” in egg cartons with girls.
  • 1/2 hour of sorting desk
  • Final Numbers to Complete Tax Return

This weekends projects include:

  • Taxes Filed
  • Finishing up the Surprise for Tricia @ GraceWorks
  • General Tidy of my Garage. This is my April task for the monthly roundup. I know it isn’t a cupboard or a closet but when you see the photos you will understand. The first step to tackling it is a general tidy so I can at least walk in it!


  1. oh boy, does this ever sound like me!! all the way from cutting your mouth on rice krispies to grocery shopping at night! 🙂

    Hope you all feel better!

  2. Well it’s nice to know that someone else out there has trouble with rice crispies! LOL
