It seems as if the boys are slipping into a breakfast rut. They usually want toast or cereal. While I like that this is easy, it really doesn’t fill them up and fuel them up for the day.

Jack has been known to come home from school saying I didn’t pack enough lunch. What, how much more can I pack?? He barely finishes in his allotted time.

Every time I buy bananas they eat them so quickly I don’t have a chance to ever see them ripen enough to use for baking! I finally got smart and got a HUGE bunch of bananas. Success, they weren’t able to eat them all before I got my hands on them. Continue reading
