Thanks to Krusteaz, we had a quick, yummy dinner and we have a super giveaway for you too at the end of this post!
Tonight was a night that if we hadn’t had breakfast for dinner, I don’t know what we would have had! Honestly, now with school in full swing, it seems like more nights than not, we only have time for a breakfast dinner.
Yes, I really do thank the Good Lord and Krusteaz for an in the kitchen break and still with happy faces at the table when I serve dinner!
When Krusteaz asked if we thought our family would benefit from Krusteaz sending us some breakfast ideas and products, I had no doubt that we would. Krusteaz is the most popular brand that our family uses for not just pancakes, but also for muffins and cookies!
I used to make homemade pancakes and waffles from scratch. Then I went to the box where you had oil, water and eggs and now I’m all for simple…..just add water. BUT because I use Krusteaz pancake mix, I’m not lacking in taste and fluffiness! I’ve used other brands and I don’t like them nearly as much! I mean, just look at them…they look perfect, they look like the yummy pancakes that would be served to you at a restaurant.
I gotta add, it’s also nice getting a break on the cost of a dinner too, isn’t it? When I make out my grocery list each week, I’m always wishing I was the owner of a great grocery store such as Hannaford. I don’t see that in my future, LOL, but with having to feed eight for dinner every night, I’m good with a Krusteaz breakfast budget once a week or so.
Well, tonight Leesie had her friend Leah over after school. We had plenty to do, from after school homework to juggling rides and to Pioneer Kids Club Night. The perfect dinner was going to be pancakes for our run around night. As the boys came in from their sports they all said, “Oh yum, breakfast for dinner.” We had sides of sausage and spiral ham leftovers to go along with it. Dinner was easy, clean up was just as easy and everyone was satisfied! Especially Mom!!!

I see in my future Wednesday being a crazy night….I think Waffles with strawberries would make a delicious sit down family breakfast at dinner, don’t you!
Here are some breakfast facts. Are you included in these number as well?
Here are a couple recipes to take your pancake batter up a notch. I like the turnovers for an after school snack.
