Recipe: Cinnamon Sugar Croissants

I’m linking up again for the Momfessionals Recipe Club.

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.

What I enjoy about this recipe is that it is really easy, and most of the time, I have the items in my pantry and fridge.  Plus, it is definitely a mommy/daughter recipe – something she can absolutely help with.  Or, in the case of repeating the recipe on Monday, she can do all by herself (minus the oven part).

Take them a Meal – Creamy Crockpot Chicken and Broccoli

In all of my chaos, I didn’t realize it would take hubby an extra day (or possibly 10) to vacate our house.  So last week (or was it two?), one of our neighbors informed me that our other neighbor had her baby (YAY!) and if I wanted to, I could “Take her a meal.”

 

I love this idea of bringing new mamas a big meal. No matter how seasoned you are with having a kiddo, its nice to sit down, relax, and eat.  So of course I said, “of course I’ll sign up!” and what better day to do it than the day after Kevin was supposed to leave so it would take my mind off of other things.

 

Even easier, a website called “Take them a meal” offers a quick way to schedule out whose bringing what, when and provides necessary info (like food allergies, how many to cook for, who is the main contact, etc).  And if you need a meal idea, they are there for you.
