The BOY woke up this morning and said ‘Why can’t every morning be Sunday morning?’
I couldn’t agree more!
I love waking up to no alarm, taking my time getting out of bed cuddling with the BOY and Cooper.
Then sitting on the couch while drinking my black tea (instead of in my car).
Whipping up a batch of Cinnamon Streusel Muffins for the BOY (from the Krusteaz box he found in our pantry).
Tell me you’re digging the Hanukkah muffin liners?!
And then breakfast for myself. I made Whole Wheat Banana French Toast on Friday and it was awesome. I knew I wanted to have it again with my last two slices of bread.
And because it is soo easy to make with ingredients you probably already have in your house, I thought I would share the recipe with you.
Confession…even though I REALLY wanted to go to an easy yoga class this morning, I really didn’t want to set my alarm last night. I thought there was a 9:30am class, but it actually started at 9am (right when I was sitting down to breakfast). Even though I am enjoying my taper, it is hard to change your morning mindset from go-go-go to slow down.
My Sunday morning meal planning club has been active via email as we are all making plans from 4 separate cities for the week ahead. I’ve got some great looking meals planned and just need to swing by the grocery store for the ingredients before the Bears game.
What’s your favorite thing about Sunday?
Whole Wheat Banana French Toast
2 slices whole wheat bread, sliced in half
1 banana, mashed well
1 egg + 1 egg white
1 tsp vanilla
A generous and unmeasured pinch of cinnamon
Mash banana in a bowl. Scramble in egg, vanilla, and cinnamon. Stir well until everything is combined.
Heat skillet pan on medium and spray with with cooking spray (I use coconut spray).
