Breakfast Menu #1 (partial)

Breakfast continues to be the most challenging meal for me to get right. I've already went through the basics of a healthy breakfast and know that I should be including protein, dairy, & fruits and veggies. It's an easy concept, but following through is a different story. Perhaps the fact that I am not a morning person has something to do with it. So if that is my excuse then I know the answer... advance meal planning. I've preplanned a week's worth of dinner time meals for the family but that's as far as I got. I got to thinking that maybe it is time to go back to my home child care days and plan out an entire menu for the week, including breakfast. And that is just what I have done for the rest of the school week.

Stuffin' Egg Muffins

I am hoping that by having a game plan that I can keep on track and perhaps getting up a few minutes early, as originally planned, will help out as well.

Aztec Blend

I was at the Bulk Barn last week and decided to try out one of their rice blends. It is Aztec Blend #1656. It includes colusari red rice, long grain brown rice, split peas, and amaranth. I had no idea what some of those ingredients were but figured anything's worth a try, right? When I got home I looked up colusari rice & amaranth. Colusari rice is a burgundy-colored chewy rice that has a light nutty-popcorn-like flavor and amaranth is actually an herb.

It was very simple to prepare & actually pretty good. The peas were a little crunchy which added nice texture. I was surprised that both kids really liked it.

Banna-Nutella Tortilla Wrap

While standing in the grocery store line last week I was flipping through a cooking magazine and came across this idea.  I thought it was the perfect after school surprise for Christian.

First I spread the nutella on a tortilla.

Then I put a peeled banana on it.

Rolled it up...

...and it was ready to eat.

Christian shared it with his little brother and they both gobbled it up.  A little messy... for Alexander especially, but worth it.

Raspberry Picking with Alexander

Two weeks ago we took Alexander raspberry picking.  He dressed up in long sleeves and pants to protect his legs from the raspberry vines and his rainy day boots in hopes of a puddle to splash in.
