I think my kids are becoming more Italian as each day passes. The other morning Matteo asked to have milk and Italian cookies for breakfast. It was the first time that he has ever made this request. Cookies and milk are a very popular breakfast choice in Italy. Max eats this meal 80% of the time- when he is tired he will eat cereal and milk. I had to check in the cupboard to see what we had available and we were completely stocked with goodies.
I myself am a fan of the Ringo brand cookies with vanilla filling while everyone else prefers the chocolate filling. I also love the Mulino Biano brand, and I absolutely loved our Mulino Biano themed beach towel that Malina had from her nonna (grandmother) until this past summer when she lost it. There were lots of little characters, similar characters to the minions from “Despicable Me”, running around doing activities.
Both kids ended up with cookies and milk for breakfast and were fueled for the big bike ride we later took with Max.
