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

beautiful day for playing with guns 🔫 i know that i'm not easy to love: i can't be baked for, cooked for, or touched. i'm independent to a fault, and yet, you all keep finding ways to cover me with love and encouragement. big public thank you to my family and friends for persistently showering me with blessings, encouraging texts, and for continually bringing my family to God in prayer. we took family night to derek tonight, and filled that room with laughter!
