Delicious Eats

Without even realizing it I had 5 days of delicious breakfast sitting in my camera waiting to be uploaded. I decided to squish them into a quick scrumptious post for you, just in case you were wondering what to have for breakfast tomorrow morning, or if you're in the mood for breakfast dinner, which Im sure you are. 

#1. The quickest and easiest. Toast, not just any toast, delicious french bread toast with butter (of coarse, please never forget the butter) and Brenda's homemade strawberry jam. I confess I ate a piece before i took this picture. 

#2. Homemade apple sauce. When your apples start to near the end of their lifespan, use them for applesauce! My kids are 10 times more likely to eat applesauce than they are apples. 

What you need: 4 apples, peeled, cored, and chopped
3/4 cup water
1/4 cup white sugar
1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon. 

Make it: In a saucepan, combine apples, water, sugar, and cinnamon. Cover, and cook over medium heat for 15 to 20 minutes, or until apples are soft. Allow to cool, then mash with a fork or potato masher. 

You can jar it too, for quick easy after school snacks or breakfast as you're heading out the door. 

#3. Blueberry Pancakes. Brett made these. He drops the blueberries in perfectly when the are cooking on the griddle so they turn out beautifully. I prefer cream to syrup. Make you own cream, please make your own cream. Heavy wipping cream, confectioners sugar, vanilla, air. If you whip it by hand be prepared to whip for awhile, I like to use the beaters. Quick, easy, delicious. 

#4. Porridge. The hardiest of all breakfasts. 
Recipe from Can You Stay For Dinner. yum. You'll like this one, a lot. When its done feel free to spoon in a little brown sugar, or my kids like to request chocolate chips. 

#5. Apple Bread ... Banana Bread except with homemade applesauce instead of bananas. We ate it hot out of the oven with butter ... it just doesn't get any better than that.

Happy Breakfasting!

  1. That french bread toast with strawberry jam and butter looks so good I feel like I can taste it right now. That's what I want for breakfast tomorrow!
