Well, you guys, we made it past Thanksgiving (and hopefully we’re all still in one piece). November will also soon be coming to a close, and you know what that means?
The heart of the holiday season will be upon us!
If you can’t already tell, I’m seriously looking forward to all the fun in store for us in December. And it’s not just because of the traditions (which are great) or the festivities (they’re wonderful, too), it also has to do with how entertaining December can be. 2016 has been a rough year for many of us, and I think we can all agree that a little good-natured fun is just what the doctor ordered.
One of the things I’m looking forward to the most? Illumination Entertainment’s upcoming movie, SING©, releasing on December 21st!

A good movie has always been my favorite escape, and I love that December is becoming another month in the year for big movies. It only helps to make my favorite month of the year even better.
So, as you can probably imagine, all these traditions, festivities, and entertainment have me super busy (as I’m sure they do you, too). And if you’re anything like me, it becomes far too easy to forget to stop for a simple meal, or even a snack, when you’re mind is busy planning a million other things.
This is why I also love to keep Grape-Nuts® cereal in the house. There are so many things you can make with it.
I found Grape-Nuts® at my local Target, in their cereal aisle.
And one of my absolute favorite dishes to make with Grape-Nuts®? This delicious fried cinnamon banana breakfast bowl.
I love how simple this is to make. Frying the bananas takes all of 10 minutes, and it helps bring a rich, sweet flavor to the Grape-Nuts® cereal and the mellow greek yogurt.
So what about you?
