linked 52: Breakfast

It was a long day yesterday and I didn't get this post done for today.  Add together a full day of work, not getting off until 6, and dinner with a friend. . . here we are.  My goal is to be more prepared next week.

I was thinking about this breakfast prompt and felt at a loss a little.  The boys were at their dad's house and my pancakes didn't look very photogenic on their plate.  What to do?  I took a pic of our fall back breakfast.  You know, the breakfast you eat when you don't have anything better to eat.  Your go to breakfast when you have less than minutes to eat, get your shoes on and get out the door.

I'm in denial pretty sure this is not the healthiest breakfast I could give my children.  Yes, that's a pop tart you see in my little breakfast bucket!  Don't judge.

I have a rotating schedule so on the days I go in late, I usually make assemble breakfast -- a bagel, some toast and yogurt, a waffle, something like that.  The days that I go in early . . . you're looking at it.  At least I know they'll get something a little more substantial at the center.  I guess my saving grace is that I make pancakes every Sunday.  And now you probably know more about my breakfast than you ever wanted to.  :)

Since I'm so late today, I don't have the whole list of all the "linked" blogs.  Head over to Stacey's blog and check out the list.


  1. Mmmmmm....poptarts!!!

    And I'm so glad I'm not the only mom that shoves a cereal bar in my son's hand as we run out the door some mornings!!

    So happy you are joining in with us, Carla!

  2. I joined the project this week too!

    And my kids eat granola bars or Kudos bars for breakfast more mornings than I care to admit!

  3. Oh my gosh! Poptarts! I may have to buy some now. Love them! I know this breakfast all too well from my work days. Just grab anything you can eat in the car and go. :) My motto: something is better than nothing.

  4. Have you met our pantry? Full of cereal bars and fast meals---in a perfect morning we would all be like Carol Brady or Mrs. Clever.

  5. Well I think my breakfast is certainly the worst. ha! We have all kinds of cereal bars or pop tarts in our pantry--whatever works! :)


I love comments! I can't figure out how to e-mail back and say thanks so Thank You now! :)
