A mere two days ago (as Robin can attest to) I made cereal bars. This is something I have not done in at least a decade, but clearly needs to be done more frequently. The bars were enjoyed, devoured and gone within 36 hours. This is all mildly interesting. But THEN, my sister, who, mind you, I haven’t talked to since Sunday, called this morning and asked what? For the recipe for the cereal bars our mom used to make.
Whoa. We are totally connected at the brain and sending messages through space to each other even when we haven’t talked in days. She had no idea I had made cereal bars. The idea just popped into her head. I love it when things like this happen. It makes everything seem so delightfully interconnected and other-dimensional.
I’m actually a bit weepy uploading this photo because the cereal bars are all gone and I can’t have one right now. For those of you feeling the same way, I used this recipe and melted two cups of chocolate chips to slather on top. As a bonus, it is a great way to use up stale cereal.
