breakfast

breakfast.

50% of the time it’s cereal.  i think cereal is genius.  especially the stuff that leaves chocolate milk in your bowl.

elliot loves himself a toasted english muffin with butter and processed cheese.  anne likes to mix milk, cream cheese, and sugar crisp together.  it makes me want to gag, but hey- we all have our preferences.

it has been agreed that crêpes for breakfast, rock.

i’ve made this recipe a couple of times now, and it’s fool-proof.   i use a cast iron frying pan and bit of spray oil; it does the trick.  but who cares about the crêpe itself?  it’s all about the filling!

filling one:  cut up some strawberries, and sprinkle them with sugar.  sometimes i throw blackberries in there as well, it depends on what i have in the fridge that needs to be used up.  leave them overnight.   top the strawberry crêpe with some icing sugar.

filling two: chop up some apples, and shake them up in a bowl with some cinnamon & sugar.  melt butter in a saucepan, and stir your apples in until they’re as tender as you like them.  top this variation with some caramel sauce (which i always have on hand in case i NEED this recipe).

this morning we sat down at the table to pray for our food, and it went like this:

thank you God for family, for sunshine, and for dessert for breakfast.  amen.

my life in pics

finally turned our dining room wall into a gigantic whiteboard, and we're so happy with it! (tip: two coats, let it cure for a week. we did neither of those and i regret! but i love the wall so much anyway).
