Lazy Sunday morning

Around here Sunday seems to have become my day to make breakfast. Which works out well because Sunday is also my morning to wake up early with the little guy. The weekdays, well, they are normally pretty busy and revolve around last minute school readiness. And Saturday? Well, Saturday is Pancake Day. It has been pancake day ever since the kids were little. And Daddy always makes them. It was one of those...he was really good at it and the kids loved them....so now pancakes are your thing, daddy.

I have to be honest and say that I'm not a big breakfast fan. I like breakfast....just not really at breakfast time.
I mean, I like breakfast for dinner. But those big breakfasts like pancakes and french toast and all that....its not really my thing. Gimme a bagel and cream cheese, or a muffin...maybe a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.....

This morning the little guy and I set out to make some cinnamon streusel muffins.
He loves to help in the kitchen. Totally loves it. He's a very methodical chef. Everything needs to be just so and things all happen in a very orderly fashion.



This is very serious business.


Making sure to get everything out of the bowl.


Now we have moved onto the streusel topping...I was very impressed that more of it didnt make it into his mouth along the way.



20 minutes later, we have these. Yummy.


Every good chef has to sample his work.

Hmmm, he kind of sound like someone else I know: "a very methodical chef. Everything needs to be just so and things all happen in a very orderly fashion." Those look yummy, I'll take those over pancakes anyday!

Oh god!! Between your statements and mim's, it is clinched my friend...we could never co-exist in the same kitchen!!! LOL!! (And neither could Ethan's and little G, I would guess.) But they are wonderful little helpers at this age, aren't they?

Muffins always taste better when they're made with the little ones we love! Those look yummy, tell little guy good job!

frugalmom said...

mim: Who would that be?

gnightgirl: Wait...Im so not letting him get married...then who will cook for me?

goatgirl: Ha! Now that I have the recipe...you just wait...we will have to send you some!

farmer jen: Helpers are for sure nice to have. Especially ones that help clean up!

linda m: Thanks for coming by. I kinda like my little chef, too!

angie: It would be fine. Just dont move my stuff.

inadvertentfarmer: Dont they tho? He didnt have any trouble enjoying them!

sarah: Thanks.

Mim said...

Hmmm, I wonder. LOL Perhaps it's the girl that has to have her spices just so. ;0)

goatgirl said...

Just don't add raisins...I didn't want to say anything to goldilocks but fair scones do not have raisins.

frugalmom said...

goatgirl: Phew! Thats good to hear considering I wasnt gonna put them in there. What do fair scones have in them? Chocolate? I like that...blueberries? Thats good. Cinnamon.....

goatgirl said...

Well it's that recipe, without raisins, and then you put LOTS of butter inside and rasberry jam. Must be eaten with a cup of hot coffee.
