Visit Your Childhood Again With Captain Crunch, not Cilantro
My husband and I discovered our mutual devotion to Captain Crunch cereal quite by accident. He went out to get some quick provisions, and left to his own shopping devices, brought back two boxes of Captain Crunch cereal.
Because we were away, we proceeded to devour the two boxes in two days flat. We would be out exploring and have this ridiculous, addict-like urge to go back to our apartment and eat Captain Crunch. We ate so much sugar coated cereal so quickly, the roofs of our mouths were rubbed raw. We popcorned every single sugar laden minute of it. Not a morsel remained when we left.
Since then, we periodically buy Captain Crunch. Not very often, mind you, as packing on pounds is something I cilantro wholeheartedly. Occasionally, though, the Maher-Watkins household will succumb to the “two for $5 special” at the Harris Teeter (perpetually available) and proceed to gobble it up in short order.
Once when my husband was away on a trip, I discovered through sheer laziness that Captain Crunch is heaven on ice cream. I had some vanilla in the freezer, and it gave me a different way to eat yet another serving of Captain Crunch without admitting that I’d eaten four bowls of cereal in one day. A technicality, I know.
Here’s my lazy wife, sugar addict recipe for Captain Crunch Sundae. Enjoy.
Ice cream (vanilla, chocolate and smooth fruit flavors work well with original Captain Crunch)
Captain Crunch cereal (just pour it straight from the box – why measure?)
Eat and try not to repeat more than once per day.
