Breakfast of Champions

We woke up this morning with a temperature of 17!! Knowing that we wouldn't be getting out of the house anytime in the morning with these frigid temps, I got a wild hair and decided to actually make breakfast. The usual breakfast consists of Luke having a frozen waffle and fruit and Jacob having a breakfast bar and fruit. Today we made homemade waffles, fresh squeezed juice and bacon. Although I will admit we had the "already cooked" bacon that you just heat in the microwave. Much easier. The boys had fun helping especially with making the juice. We added apples, oranges, carrots and cranberries and the boys just love it! Luke wouldn't drink it for the longest time but drank a whole cup full this morning. What a better way to spend a chilly morning than in the kitchen with my two buddies!!

Preparing the waffles

Getting ready to make the juice and of course the boys eating the fruit.

Final product

Finally, enjoying it all!


  1. With those smiles, I'd say your wild hair idea was a smashing success! Can't wait until I can make memories like this with Alex. Oh, and let me just say that I am impressed that you were able to document all of this while preparing the food. You got skills!

  2. What a fun way to spend the morning!!! It was COLD today. I bet the boys really enjoyed that. I think I'm going to have to get a juicer! Looks delicious.

  3. Shoot fire! Wish I could have been in on that! Would definitely make this frigid COLD enjoyable! You are filling the banks of wonderful memories!

  4. What a fun morning in spite of the cold weather! I'm sure the boys will be hoping for many more homemade breakfasts now!

    We've been making pancakes for breakfast at our house lately, but I think it's the cooking that is more fun than the eating!

  5. Aww, that's fun girl! What a fun day to do a big breakfast when it's all chilly outside! Mmm, your juice sounds good too!
