How’s everyone doing so far with the Getting Ahead for Breakfast Challenge? Our family has been eating a lot of Instant Oatmeal Packets recently, so I’m going to have to make more soon. Which leads me to my next statement: We do not always follow our menu plans exactly. (I’ve shared this before, but felt it was worth sharing again.)
I begin the week with the best of intentions. I create a menu based on what I feel will work best for each day of the week. But real life and ideal menu
don’t always never jive perfectly – so I roll with it. That’s why having Make-Ahead Meals prepped and ready to grab is so important to me in this season of life.
Since we’re focusing on getting ahead for breakfast this week, I decided that each breakfast item on my menu would include foods that have been or can be made ahead of time. If I can at least get breakfast put on the table quickly and easily, I find that the rest of my day goes more smoothly.
