Breaking out of the Cereal Rut- Day 2

25 October 2011

Today was day 2 in my continued effort to "Break out of the Cereal Rut."  Today went well, it was made up of 3 tried and true favorites in my house:

"Grammy Style" Eggs:  Saute spinach in olive oil.  Whisk 8 eggs and add 2 wedges of Laughing Cow Garlic and Herb Cheese (smash with fork until it forms small chunks in the eggs.)  Add eggs and cheese to the spinach and continue "stirring" with a spatula until almost cooked.  When almost cooked but still moist, add 1 t. Penzey's Spices Fox Point Seasoning (a mixture of salt, shallots, chives garlic, onion, and green peppercorns.)

Mini Pumpkin Muffins

Sliced Bananas with Raspberries

***No one asked for cereal! (And no one has even asked for it as a snack!)
***Just as I was thinking about how well this morning went, my older son said he was still hungry. I gave him another small serving of eggs and that seemed to satisfy him.

I will say that, so far, this has been more work than just giving the kids cereal. However, cereal usually turned into: Cereal Round 1, Oatmeal, Eggs or Toast with Cashew Butter, Fruit, Cereal Round 2 (yes, one child may have eaten all of those "meals" in one morning!!  So, if looking at the big picture, this probably is taking less time (and I'm certainly using fewer dishes!)

Plan for tomorrow: Quiche
