The other day my husband and I were perusing the frozen food section at our local superstore, amazed [and disgusted] at the vast array of frozen options. There are peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, pastries, and even biscuits with sausage gravy on the inside [um, gross]. "Microwave to your heart's content!," screamed the brightly colored boxes of chemically derived products. If we are so busy that we can't make our own PB&Js, there's more than one issue at hand.
With a little planning, breakfast doesn't have to be so hard. You definitely don't have to sacrifice money and nutrition to get a great meal in your kids [and yourself] each morning. It is, after all, the most important part of the day.
Here's a great idea to try out. On Saturday morning, when you're probably already making waffles or pancakes, make a double batch. Seperate them on a sheet pan lined with parchment and let them cool. Then freeze until solid. Pack them into ziploc bags after they've been frozen; this will keep them from sticking together. Then on a busy morning, all you have to do is pop them into the toaster and there you have it, breakfast! Pair it with a boiled egg that you cooked the night before and you've got a balanced--not to mention quick--breakfast.
