Dinner time can be hard sometimes. I feel like pulling out a cookbook is like the last thing in the world I want to do at 5 o’clock at night. Making dinner can be such a process in itself, and then there’s the whining. I don’t know if it’s only me- but I doubt it- but the whining at dinner time makes me want to pull all my hair out. I’m not sure why my children think I’m a short order cook?
One meal I can always count on for zero whining is breakfast! I am not a fan of cold cereal for breakfast because my kiddos are hungry again like five minutes after they eat. I always want to make them something that’s going to fill their bellies and keep them full so I’m not in the kitchen again for second and third breakfast. Have your ever wondered why in the world does breakfast only have to be in the morning??
We changed it up and left all the whining out for the night by making breakfast for dinner! We used Krusteaz Buttermilk Complete Pancake Mix. It’s so easy to make, it’s honestly a no brainer for dinner time, too. The pancake mix really is complete- the only thing you have to add is water! They came out so light and fluffy; they were perfection.
We had a ball with the Batter Pen! I have never seen one of these before and it’s genius. Have you ever been making pancakes and your kids are like, “Will you make me a lady bug??” or “I want my name!” The requests are finally achievable with this amazing contraption.
We also made Krusteaz Cinnamon Swirl Muffins and they were a huge hit with the kiddos. Cake for dinner? Yes please! One thing I love about making such easy meals is that my littles love to participate. My five year old has decided she wants to be a chef when she grows up so it’s really fun for me to be able to fuel her fire and see the spark in her eye.
I used the T-Fal Pan to make sausage and eggs and Holy Crazy non-stick action! This pan is necessary for every kitchen in America. The eggs didn’t stick while cooking and came out of the pan so easily. This is now my go-to omelet pan people.
Krusteaz has a Blueberry Pancake and muffin mix that sound amazing. I can’t wait to try them all. You better believe this isn’t the last time we will be having breakfast for dinner! I think it’s becoming a weekly regular in our dinner routine 🙂
