Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.
Yes, I know this. But, I am not a breakfast fan. I don’t usually like to eat in the morning. I’d much rather drink a cup of coffee or tea (or even a glass of water) and call it good.
However, growing up, I remember waking up to the aroma of my mother cooking the family something delicious almost every day. And if it was Korean food, all the better!
I don’t have the energy to be so creative that early in the morning. So I stick with simple things. Yogurt with pumpkin flax granola. Cinnamon raisin toast with cream cheese. French toast.
But my son’s favorite breakfast is a serving of floppy eggs (aka scrambled eggs), with a dollop of catsup on the side. (Yes, that’s how I ate eggs when I was a kid, too. These days, I prefer hot sauce.) My little guy loves fruit, so I always try to include apple slices or a banana with his meal.
This day, I made him a fruit salad of raspberries, blackberries and strawberries. While I was at it, I also put the berries on skewers so he could take them for his kindergarten snack. (Thanks, Julie, for that idea!)
Is it weird that I am actually looking forward to making him nutritious and fun lunches to take to school next year? I’ve already started a Pinterest board devoted to bentos. There’s not much more left to do then, right? 😉
