There's been a huge change in our home...we have given up cereal. As in there is not one single box of cereal on the cereal shelf. You know what that means? I have to make a hot breakfast every single day- no matter how I feel! One of the ways I manage to do that is by preparing as much as possible ahead of time. I try to start our breakfast right after dinner while I'm cleaning the kitchen. For example, tomorrow we're having waffles so I whipped up a batch of waffle batter and put it in the fridge. If we're having snicker doodle coffee cake I put all the dry ingredients in a bowl and then I just have to add the wet ingredients in the morning. I'll also spend a day making doughnuts from scratch to have for snacks and breakfast the next day.
Starting breakfast the night before works for me
