Last Saturday, Mini Me had a friend spend the night. Whenever she has friends stay the night, I make breakfast the next morning for them. Note: I’m not the kind of mom who makes a full blown breakfast every morning for my kid, so this is also very special to Mini Me, to get a fresh breakfast.
I really enjoy getting in the kitchen with my daughter, and when her friends are over, I don’t worry about the mess they’ll make, I just enjoy the fun they’re having making stuff. It brings me back to cooking in the kitchen with my mom, and sitting on top of the counter, stirring bowls and licking spoons. (more…)
I love seeing all the breakfast ideas come out this time of year, but that is just not reasonable for my household. I work full-time, and my daughter has learned over her last 11 years of existence, to rely on breakfast on the go options.
As a 6th grader, she is now capable of getting herself up in the morning and ready, and now that includes getting herself breakfast. But I have found some nice “cheats” available that help her get out the door a little bit easier. (more…)
