BREAKFAST FOR DINNER — AKA BRINNER

We usually eat the same 4 or 5 meals for dinner every week around here. It’s not easy finding things that a toddler, vegetarian and sometimes meat eater all agree on, but we make due. Usually it’s lots of pasta, tacos, stir fries and one of our favorites, breakfast. Or brinner as we like to call it.

It’s quick, it’s easy and there’s no complaining what so ever. That’s a win if you ask me.

We usually stick to eggs and pancakes, but sometimes throw in a side of crispy hash browns depending on how hungry we are. Yesterday we decided to skip ’em, and add some extra toppings to our pancakes instead (blueberries and walnuts).
DSC_0307I actually meant to add the blueberries into the pancakes, but I got distracted and totally forgot. #momlife
DSC_0301We like our pancakes thick and fluffy around here. Next time you make a batch add in some cinnamon and a splash of vanilla extract. Trust me on this one.
DSC_0311 (1)Oh and big pats of butter and real maple syrup! Hey, I didn’t say it was healthy, but it is delicious.
DSC_0314Don’t forget to break out your fancy glasses either. Anything worth having is worth using and it makes the whole thing feel a bit more like your eating out and a lot less like you just made the easiest thing you could find. Especially when your husband does the dishes 😉 If only there was champagne in there too…
DSC_0317This is the best instant mix we’ve tried so far (and we’ve tried a bunch because who really has time to make them from scratch?). They have no artificial anything and super that’s important to us, even more so if Cooper’s having some too.

Add in a little more batter than the recipe calls for to get extra fluffy pancakes. I also have a box of their heart healthy mix just asking to be made with some ripe bananas.
DSC_0325Here’s a coupon for $.50 off one box too. Hey, every little bit helps!

Now go make some pancakes! It is national breakfast month after all (side note — who comes up with these holidays and where do I apply?)
