I am fortunate. My children aren't nearly as picky eaters as I was. (Though the Big D is going through a not eating the color green unless its a salad stage.) I would have ate cheerios 3 meals a day. I hated pancakes and french toast...and also tacos.
My kids like pancakes. I wouldn't say they are my favorite, but I dont hate them. I actually like them with blueberries or chocolate chips. The kids love them plain or with any combination of things I have thrown in. Made from scratch or a mix, with whole wheat flour and honey or white flour and sugar. To them it's all good.
My kids also like french toast. Again plain or with toppings and additions. For the record I also like french toast these days.. .though probably everyday.
This morning was rough. I stayed up too late reading a book. Then I was up too early with the baby. So I layed like a lump on a log curled up on the couch while my children swore to be dying of starvation and thirst. Finally I stirred and I heard "couldnt we at least have toast? ANYTHING we are soooooo hungry". I looked at the time and was embarrassed at how late it was. So I made french toast.
So quick and easy, yet still has the look of a thoughtful meal. And it struck me. I was such a pain as a child because I didn't like any breakfast meal that was quick and easy. (Aside from cold cereal). I'm sure Mom had the same kind of days I do. Same list of chores and varying amounts of sleep...and she DIDN'T drink coffee! Seriously Mom, how did you childrear without caffeine?

No Bud...I don't think you look seven.
Big D: If you like my body and you think I'm seven, come on baby let me know! If you think I'm seven, if you think I'm seven let me knooooow.
Big D: I love you too much. With Snails are my witness without you loving me back.If you have watched the movie The Book of Life lately you might recognize the jingles he has stuck in his head. If not...well I'm guessing you have at least heard the first one at some point.

How many substitutes can you make before it's not the same recipe anymore?
Bonus Question: How many can you plan on making before drawing the line and saying "New Plan"?
Last night we had "inspired by Chicken Cordon Blue casserole" with no ham.

Big D: Did Dad just give you a spank?!
Me: Yep, what are we going to do about him?
Big D: Before we go-ed to the farm last day we asked dad to get us donuts and he said "wait here"
Me: Did he bring back donuts?
Big D: Nooo, he only gets us donuts when we go in the grocery store.
(Duh Mom, drink your coffee and follow along)
Me: Oh that Dad
Big D: Yep. He is crazy and silly and nice.
