Weekends are the best time of the week. The week is over, no work for two days (three in my case), I get to sleep in, wear PJs all day, eat a yummy breakfast, & work on what I love. One of my ultimate favorite parts of the weekend is breakfast. Breakfast is probably the best meal of all of the meals.
Zach & I alternate between what we eat for breakfast: sometimes it's just cereal, sometimes it's pancakes, sometimes we fend for ourselves, but most of the time breakfast involves some sort of eggs & bacon. This morning was no exception.
Since Zach cooks most of the dinners in the relationship, I try to cook most of the breakfasts (since, really, how can you screw up eggs!?!). I haven't bought bacon in a while but found this sort of pre-cooked, sliced ham that I usually fry up in it's place. It tastes great & you can throw it on an english muffin with your eggs & have a little ham-egg-muffin sandwich thing. I love it because it gets the greatest tasting little glaze on it.
Zach likes his eggs scrambled & super burnt so I usually make his first to get the pan nice and hot for my 'hockey puck' eggs. I like my eggs hard in the center or scrambled (but not burnt) with some strawberry jam. Yum!
This morning I opted for some yummy Lemon Blueberry Crisp Cereal that was on clearance at Target. I've also started a love affair with almonds so threw some of that in too. The photo above is pre-milk because I didn't want it to get all soggy!! I am really enjoying discovering adult cereal as I like to call it. Cereal that isn't sugar frosted & satisfies my sophisticated tastes. (yeah right)
I consider weekend breakfasts with Zach to be another mini date. We get to sit together & I really enjoy that time to just sit & relax. Neither of us have work or anything serious to worry about during that time so we just sit & eat....maybe watch a Stargate episode (or two).
So here are some great Mini-Date Easy Breakfast Ideas I like to throw together:
- The Classic - eggs & bacon (or ham slices)
- The Handfull - english muffin, toasted with scrambled (or hockey puck) eggs, bacon/ham. Side of strawberries (our fave fruit!)
- Take the Cake - a big ol stack of thin pancakes (think nearly crepe thinness)
- Cereal Offender - choose either the kind you enjoyed when you were a child or a yummy adult cereal like the Archer Farms brand from Target.
So what is your favorite part of the weekend? Does it involve food?
