Tawra…thanks so much for all your wonderful ideas on frugal living. I have been loving your newsletter for several months now…I am a busy mom working 2 jobs and trying to be a great parent as well…thanks for helping us all focus on what is TRULY important.
Our families breakfast FAST FAVORITES:
Last year when my oven went on the fritz and we couldn’t afford a new one, I bought a TOASTER OVEN and fell in love with all the wonderful things you can do with it!!!
I bought a muffin pan from Dollar General that makes 6 perfect muffins in the magical toaster oven in the mornings. I love the inexpensive Muffin mixes, and have found a Mayberry’s Classics line for .88 a bag that has muffins like Lemon Ice Box, Peach Cobbler, French Toast, and Chocolate Chip…SUPER CHEAP…& simple…just add milk and they are done in 10 minutes!!! My family is small so the 6 muffins usually last 2 days. Not to mention not having to wait to heat up the whole gas oven for a small batch of muffins.
I also love my 8″ non-stick skillet…small enough for the perfect omelet.. I cut a pack of bacon in half and cook a few strips in the morning then crack 2 eggs and top with cheese, then throw it on bread for a quick breakfast sandwich to go for my HUBBY…and nothing gets him up like the smell of BACON in the house!! Done in under 5 minutes…
I like to use turkey sausage, egg whites & salsa for a quick breakfast burrito. Same pan, just give it a quick rinse and ready for the next order!
I also will often make BREAKFAST FOR DINNER and make extra pancakes or make burritos from left over sausage gravy and scrambled eggs and put it in the freezer for quick FROZEN breakfasts!
It helps get everybody off on a good foot…I also only allow POSITIVE things in the morning at home…no NEWS…no NEGATIVITY…only positive things to start everyone off with a SMILE…because those are still FREE and worth a MILLION!!! I also cut out Cartoons or positive thoughts (hide in silverware drawer for easy access) and stick them in everyone’s lunches for RANDOM HAPPINESS… Thanks again for all your inspiration… Much LOVE & Many BLESSINGS!!!
