I don’t know why, but Murphy is alive and well in our house. The kids will live off of bananas for days, meaning we cannot keep up buying them. And then all of a sudden – nothing. They try convince you that they have NEVER liked bananas. Then you sit with box full of ripe … Read more Banana bread
On Sundays, before church, we have pancakes. This has become a tradition in our house, one that the kids look forward to the whole week.

Or if you have an office job, with a microwave, you could quickly heat it up for a hot breakfast at your desk. They make the perfect snacks for that afternoon energy slump, and I have also on occasion given them to the kids for dinner… So many possibilities!
