Foody Friday: A Breakfast Rut


Tell Your Friends:

Vanilla Breakfast

Do you ever fall asleep thinking about what you’ll eat for breakfast the next day? Well, I do. It’s my preferred meal of the day, and unless it’s awesome my day probably won’t be.

Unfortunately, my breakfasts have gotten pretty boring lately. Don’t get me wrong; I love a fried egg…but a fried egg atop plain oatmeal isn’t exactly a mind-blowing creation.

Since I could clearly use some inspiration, I’m wondering: What’s your favorite breakfast?

P.S. Enjoy your weekend! And speaking of breakfasts, I’ll be attending a Batman breakfast potluck this Sunday prior to a viewing of The Dark Knight Rises. How dreamy is that?!

    I love love love refrigerator oatmeal.  I found a good recipe on, but it’s really good with just about anything.  My favorite is the following: 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk, 1/2 tbsp chia seeds, 1/4 cup quick oats, dash cinnamon.  I put all that together in whatever lidded dish I have, shake it up, and stick it in the frig before I go to bed.  Best part: I wake up looking forward to something.  I usually put a couple slices of whatever fruit is around the house, but my favorite lately has been with homemade peach jam.  If you haven’t heard of chia seeds, they are the chia seeds of our chia pet past.  But I promise they aren’t weird at all.  🙂

    That sounds so delicious! Thanks for the suggestion, Jacqui. I’ll definitely have to try something like that out. 🙂
