I don’t know how it is around your house, but many of my mornings are a total goat rodeo. Feed the dog, walk the dog, feed the kids, pack the lunch, apply the sunscreen, and squeeze in a cup of coffee or three for momma.
Any tricks I can learn to streamline the circus are welcome. A few months back, I taught my 11 year old daughter to make a ham and cheese omelet. I had no idea how handy it would be. She has become such a pro at her “hamlets” as she calls them, that she is eager to show off her skills to anyone who will sit still. And that gives me time to sit still.
This means less time for DSP Dixie in the kitchen! The “hamlet” has become my best friend!
DSP-Approved Breakfast Sushi
- Nut Butter (any type you like)
- Rice Krispies (I used Envirokidz Koala Crisp to keep it gluten free)
- Maple Syrup
Simply cover the peeled bananas in nut butter and slice in rounds like a sushi. Roll the rounds in the rice cereal. Pour some maple syrup in a little bowl and serve with chopsticks and you got yourself BREAKFAST SUSHI!
Now, does anyone have any ideas on how to make cleaning toilets kid-friendly and fun?
