I'm excited about the start of a new school year. It's a clean slate, a fresh start, and a brand new beginning. I am looking forward to the fall; the crisp morning walk to the schoolhouse--coffee in hand. I never thought I'd be a morning person. It took a few kids and a whole of practice, but I can now say I enjoy being a (relatively) early riser--as long as the littles have let me get a solid seven hours of sleep.
Breakfast on the Go
The one thing I don't like about the hurried, harried school-day morning: making breakfast. It's bd enough that I have to pack lunches for picky eaters; but, getting them to eat a delicious, nutritious and fueling AM meal in a matter of minutes is a whole other struggle. They're not big fans of the typical quick morning meals--cereal, toast, bagels... That's why I've learned to prepare bigger batches of make-ahead breakfasts on the weekend, to serve during the week. And by "serve," I mean put in a napkin as we race out the front door. Yes, all seven of these recipes are portable!
