Me and baby B took to the kitchen last week to make our own granola! I’ve made granola before, but this was a no-extra-sugar variety. We added some cinnamon, a little honey, pecans, and dried cranberries. Pour some over plain, healthy yogurt, and we got ourselves a good breakfast! (Of course, B only enjoys watching us eat it, but loves helping in the kitchen.)
Its almost the weekend, which is a good excuse to eat cookies for breakfast! There are a lot of “breakfast cookie” recipes popping up, so they might be worth a try!
We love making waffles on the weekend. Jon almost always puts butter and syrup on his, but this time we made a ton of fruit to go on top.
I like making extra waffles, but since there are just two of us, I usually make smaller batches. Here is a quick recipe for some yummy oatmeal waffles.
- 1 cup Bisquick
- 1/2 cup oatmeal
- 1 egg
- 1 cup milk
- 3 Tbs melted butter
- Bit of cinnamon
Pour into waffle maker and cook until ready! We made 4 waffles on our waffle maker. Enjoy!
We had breakfast for dinner last week, except instead of like an omelet, we had cinnamon rolls. Plus bacon and hash browns because we aren’t monsters. These ones turned out especially spirally, and we loved each and every one of them.
The schools in Austin were cancelled today, on account of the winter weather. We celebrated our “snow” day with some french toast this morning for breakfast.
And here is all the snow and ice, which is hard to see on account of all the sun that came out today.
Lately, our weekend tradition includes going to the gym for a little bit, and then having breakfast together- in our workout clothes like typical Austin people, except we actually just came from the gym. This weekend, there weren’t any parking spots near the bagel place, so we decided to make some breakfast at home instead. We went with our specialty- biscuits. I got a super cool hexagon shaped cutter for Christmas that I was excited to try, and I love the cute little biscuits it made!
The majority of the weekend was spent finishing a large order, but we still managed to have one of those simple, wonderful weekends. It was rainy, grey, and almost freezing- so perfect movie watching weather. Not too many pictures, but lots of time together. One of my favorite parts of the weekend was our gym and bagel date.
