Welcome to the 4 Moms Breakfast Linky!
This week we are sharing breakfast ideas and recipes. Would you like to see what the other Moms serve for breakfast?
As for me, there are periods of times when I prepare a hearty homemade breakfast every morning like:
- baked oatmeal  (a family FAVORITE!)
- pancakes and bacon
- apple fritters  and sausage
- good old fashioned scrambled eggs with sausage, biscuits, and homemade country gravy 
- homemade Pop Tarts with this homemade pie crust recipe  ("How To" coming soon!)
- homemade granola bars (another "How To" to come!)
- homemade cinnamon rolls
- monkey bread
- Hummingbird cake (contains bananas, pineapples, and nuts)
And then there are other periods, like those months when I have a nursing baby who wants to be fed when she wants to be fed and if anyone has any ideas contrary to that schedule of events, she will be sure to let you know in no uncertain terms that she most definitely does NOT appreciate your disregard for her timeline, that I let the kids forage around in the pantry for boxed cereal, store bought Pop Tarts, or a loaf of bread so they can make themselves some toast.
I like to think of the latter as teaching survival skills. You never know when one of them might want to be on one of those reality survival shows and I just bet foraging comes in handy during those auditions.
At least that's what I tell myself when I'm trying to fall asleep at night.
Oh, who am kidding? I never have trouble falling asleep.
In any case, my breakfast making fervor waxes and wanes and right now we are more in a "wane" mode. Which I would like to go on record as saying is perfectly permissible when a newborn baby is in the picture.
Or a new anything for that matter. New school year. New house (which my Facebook fans know is in our picture).
My point is that I don't believe it will damage a child in any way to eat cold cereal for breakfast that he has poured for himself. Of course, it would not be my preference that my children eat this for the first meal of the day, but I have learned to give myself a break when circumstances call for it.
