Does it seem like you are ALWAYS in a hurry? You never have enough time to get anything done, especially trying to make breakfast that everyone will eat while getting kids ready for school and getting yourself ready for work.
This is totally my life! I swear we could have a sitcom just trying to get out of the door in the mornings. I have a 15 minute drive to school and then about 45 minutes to get the littlest one to daycare and still get myself to work. It can be quite exhausting to say the least! Makes me tired just thinking about it!
Maybe I’m just the mom who tries to do too much, but I feel like the kids need a hot breakfast to start off their day. Our school offers breakfast, but there aren’t always hot options or at least ones that the kids will eat. I already struggle with Mom Guilt. I also don’t have much time to get anything together in the morning, so I am always looking for new, easier recipes.
Cinnamon rolls are a favorite in my house, but I don’t always have the time to preheat the oven, bake them, wait for cooling, etc. So last week (by accident) I decided to try to throw them on the waffle maker to see if they would cook quicker. Well, they did, and they were an absolute hit with my kids! It took about 2 minutes to cook, I filled the little square in with the icing, and WALLAH! Breakfast for 4 in less than 10 minutes! And ALL the kids approved, which is a feat in itself!
So, for all of my crazy busy mom friends, I encourage you to try this! Sometimes the best things happen by experiment! Anything to make our busy lives a little easier is a win-win, right?
