I am happy to say that we are no longer battling with Lilli to get dressed in the morning as we did last year. It...was...horrible... This year our battle appears to be getting both kids to eat. One issue is that Lilli doesn't like to eat right when she gets up. I understand that. We wake both kids up shortly after 6:15ish, so that isn't really an issue. The problem is that even with that extra built in time (they don't leave for school until around 7:30), she sometimes says she isn't hungry. I have tried buying many different things, but nothing gets either of them really excited. I decided to check Pinterest (Have you sensed that pattern that I consult Pinterest a lot?!), and I found some great new recipes for us to try. I specifically was looking for things we could make ahead of time to cut down on morning prep for food.
The first thing I came across was this from Creative Juice:
How great does that look? The kids thought it looked good, too, so they helped me throw these together. I especially liked them because we could make a bunch ahead of time and freeze them. The kids and I made some tonight. Here are some pics:
Caden was in charge of cutting the bread
|Don't worry. We froze the leftover bread pieces.|
|Lilli cracked all 10 eggs with only one mishap.|
|Caden did a great job of both cutting the bread and pushing it into the muffin tin.|
I also found this from the Lean Green Bean:
One last one that I think I will try soon is this Breakfast Pizza that was listed on All Recipes.com:
Do you have any fun breakfast food ideas? Looking at all of these pics has made me very hungry!
