But sometimes we eat it at night.
When my siblings and I were growing up Mom made sure we had a good breakfast every morning. Most days that was a hot breakfast. We had eggs, or oatmeal, or malt-o-meal, or cream of wheat. Sometimes we had rice with warm milk, a bit of sugar and cinnamon. Sometimes we did have cereal, but it seems we had much more homemade goodness than my kids get.
One difference is that my mom did not have to be at work until nine. So she could get us on the bus and then get ready for work. I have to be to work as close to 7:30 as I can make it. That means that we are all heading out the door at 7. So breakfast is often not the healthiest meal of the day around here, and it also is not often made with love. More often it is cold cereal, or cinnamon toast, sometimes it is even cereal bars or pop-tarts (I know...). Occasionally I try to vary it with pbj sandwiches or quesadillas or muffins.
My kids have never been big fans of malt-o-meal, cream of wheat, or warm rice with milk. Braedon likes oatmeal better than the other two. They all like eggs, toast, English muffins, pancakes, French toast, bacon and sausage. We make breakfast for supper about once a week around here.
Tonight I used a loaf of Texas Toast I found on the day-old rack for a buck. (In the past I have also used a French baguette that I found in the same place for the same price.) I cooked up the whole thing as French toast. We ate a little less than half of it. I chopped the rest into French toast sticks, flash froze them, then popped them into a freezer bag. We will reheat them for a fun and easy breakfast later this week. All for about $1.50 including the eggs, milk, vanilla, and cinnamon.
