Breakfast: The Meal I Wish Would Fix Itself


Nikolay Okhitin, photoxpress.com

I'm not a breakfast girl.  I generally like breakfast foods, but I never feel like eating until 10, at the earliest, and it's certainly not something I'd get out of bed for.  Thankfully, I do have a nice group of older kids who are happy to prepare breakfast one day a week each- these are the 17, 15, 12, 10, and 8-year-olds.  See how that works out?  One for each school day.  Score!

Years ago when I was the only weekday breakfast producer, I made a list so that at the very least, I didn't have to think about it.  Feel free to copy and paste, and certainly feel free to add your favorites in the comments. We can always use new ideas :)
