Our school starts an hour earlier this year so being organized is a must. Sometimes that includes making breakfast the night before. If I can sneak something like zucchini into the recipe all the better.
Luke loves anything with chocolate in it! I wonder where he gets that from?
I also tried this Fermented Banana Bread recipe from Philigry. Both boys really loved these!
Fermented Banana Bread
1 3/4 c. flour
2/3 c. sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1 c. fermented bananas (around 3 banana's)
1/3 c. butter
2 Tbsp. milk
1/4 c. nuts or chocolate chips (or as much as you would like)
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 2. Mix 1 cup flour (save the rest, you will use it later), sugar, baking powder and salt. 3. Add bananas, butter and milk. 4. Beat on high for 2 minutes. 5. Add eggs one at a time and remaining flour. Mix until blended. 6. Fold in nuts and chocolate chips. 7. Bake in oven for 30-35 minutes (I make mini muffins and they take around 8min.)
Recipe will make a dozen muffins or one loaf of bread. Enjoy.
Packing their lunches the night before also helps our mornings run more smoothly. We have been using the Lap Top Lunch Box for several years and it has worked well for our family.
Toward the middle of the year I start to lose my creativity when it comes to lunch making. The Lap Top Lunches provides healthy recipes and photos for those times when you need inspiration.
Melissa over at Another Lunch also has some very cute ideas.
I made the clone trooper for Luke the first week of school and he thought it was a car. I guess I need to work on my art skills a little.
How do you make your morning run smoothly?
