Breakfast

My whole life I have been told "breakfast is the most important meal of the day". I have never bought into it even though I know I should. I know I should eat a good breakfast. When I do I feel fuller longer and don't snack at night.

Here is my problem: I hate breakfast foods. Seriously the thought of bacon and eggs first thing in the morning makes me ill. I don't like cereal very much either. So my breakfast is normally coffee and keifer. And only recently did I add the keifer. Since I am not a big breakfast person the poor little man has been destined for a life of cereal mornings. Good thing he has his grandma to make him bacon and eggs on the weekends sometimes.

Well yesterday morning was different. When I woke up something inside me said "today is the day that I get stuff done!" Have you ever had those mornings? Its like waking up from a fog and deciding to be super productive for no reason. I didn't need a reason I just went with it and the little man benefited.

We had a box of waffle mix in the cabinet and some sausage links. Today is the day I told myself, today we have a good breakfast. I went to mixing up the waffles which is super easy, btw. Seriously 3 ingredients then you pour it in the waffle maker. A couple of minutes later, fluffy golden waffles. The sausage browned up quickly in our cast iron skillet. Here is the finished product that took about 10 minutes to make.


After it was all said and done I felt so silly that I cant take 10 minutes out of my morning and make a nice breakfast, even if the little man is the only one who eats it.  Seriously how long does it take to cook an egg? Two minutes?  This is going to be my new goal for the summer: get into the habit of making breakfast so becomes a routine by the time school starts again.  No more cold cereal mornings around here.

That looks tasty! I'm making bacon right now but it will probably end up on a salad.

Even before I started working nights I'm the sort that eats whatever, whenever. Have you thought about eating leftovers for breakfast? I usually mix some form of protein (chicken or eggs usually) with fruit.

I usually eat whatever, whenever too. My mom has been grossed out my whole life by the fact that I can eat any leftovers in the morning.

Thanks for stopping by!
