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.
