As a Father’s Day gift to Dads, I have a Dad Life Hack to make dinner easy. Just grab a cereal, like Golden Grahams, and enjoy!
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day for your body, but dinner can be the most important meal for your family. When your wife have something going on in the evening, this Dad Life Hack can make you a real hero. Basically, I just feed the kids cereal for dinner.
When my wife, Kristie, has places to be and puts me in charge for dinner I let the kids choose what we have for dinner. (I am a pretty good cook,) Sometimes we have pizza, chicken strips, or burgers. But when I’ve had a busy day and they choose to go with a cereal bar. We just pull out a whole bunch of cereals and then we talk about how our day’s went.
The question we would ask our kids since they were toddlers was, “what was your favorite things today?” Now, ten years later, they are trained to ask each other the question. It makes for great dinner conversation. Everyone has a change to share what makes them happy and we ask lots of follow up questions.
More than just breakfast (or dinner)
Golden Grahams are good for more than just a meal. I love just grabbing a handful for a quick snack. What is even better though, is baking them into some amazing treats.
