I was in the car the other day and I had forgotten my phone.  I was telling my kids what it was like before I had a cell phone and a story when my car broke down and I had to walk to a pay phone to call their Dad for help.  My son told me that it sounded like I had a hard life when I was younger. 🙂  I was cracking up.  So when I got these boxes of cereal with a prize in size he was totally shocked.  He was so excited.  He kept asking me why it was in there.  I told him that when I was little there were prizes in all the cereal.  You should’ve seen the look on his face.

I was doing my regular grocery shopping at Walmart and saw these great General Mills cereals with a toy Minion inside.  OK- Cocoa Puffs and Minions, my kids are going to go crazy!  You can only find these special boxes with the a special 7th Minion at Walmart.  I bought 2 boxes, Cocoa Puffs and Honey Nut Cheerios.

They are really easy to find, right in a display in the main aisle.  There are 7 Minions to collect and here are the ones we found.  We still have some searching to do to collect them all.

Since I’m allergic to eggs, I always grew up eating pies because cake always had eggs.  I thought I would make a pie from when I was younger using the Cocoa Puffs for the crust.  I think my family will enjoy this!

    Where do you use the brown sugar that’s in the ingredients?

      Thanks- I just reread it and forgot to put that in! I corrected it. You add it in with the Cocoa Puffs and butter.
