I don’t know if it’s the dark winter mornings, or the fact that the kids are halfway through the school year and not feeling so motivated to get out of bed, but lately our house has been a fire drill to get everyone up and out the door on time. Some mornings I am chasing the kids down with a baggy of cereal or a Fiber One bar, just so they will have a little something to eat before they start their days.
I feel like my grandmother because seeing my family eat makes me happy!
Do you feel like that too? I just love to see my kids start the day right, and I especially enjoy when THEY enjoy food that I’ve made them. My husband is the best – he makes happy sounds when he eats something good – it’s the Italian in him!
Sometimes I get my act together and bake muffins for the mornings. They’re not always super healthy but I feel good knowing what went into them (vs. the store bought ones that are twice the size they should be and so good you just know they are FILLED with fat). No one misses breakfast when I have fresh baked muffins that they pass by on the way out the door!
If you like a banana bread that is not too sweet, try these Banana Muffins from Orgasmic Chef. Oh my. They are delish.
