Back to School?! Breakfast


I cannot believe that the summer has slipped by so quickly, and that I am getting ready to go back to school.  No, I am not ready.  Although I don’t think I ever am ready.  Between working on the house and working on my book (Food Empowerment, the book, will be released in the Spring of 2015), I feel like I didn’t get a lot of other things done.

But here we are.

Summer breakfasts are fun.  Most days, I am like a short-order cook, taking requests, because we have the time to cook it and eat it!  Once school starts? That is another story.  I’m not even home when my children eat breakfast.

Here are some ideas to keep you from picking up that package of frozen waffles:

  1. Make your own waffles and put them in the freezer.  Separate them with a sheet of waxed paper so they come apart easily.
  2. Make a double batch of pancakes, and put them in the freezer.  My kids heat them up with butter, sprinkle them with cinnamon sugar and roll them up.
  3. Using a wide-mouth pint canning jar, put in 1/2 C of rolled oats and 1/2 C milk. Then add 1 C of frozen berries.  Put a lid on it and leave it in the fridge over night.  Grab and go in the morning.  You could use dried fruit, as well.  I also like this with applesauce.
