Do you remember last week when I suggested you grate up a zucchini? This is why – our September recipe of the month is Chocolate Chip Zucchini Muffins and they are delicious!

Company is Coming!
“Company is coming, what are we going to eat?” There are many online recipe sources, but I always come back to Spend Smart. Eat Smart. Here is a menu with a few of my favorite recipes for entertaining.
Our September recipe of the month is Blueberry Pancakes. Pancakes are a favorite meal in our family. We eat them for supper just as often as we eat them for breakfast. I even made pancakes for supper for my husband the evening I was in labor with our oldest!

Fast Food Restaurant vs Homemade Breakfast

A few years ago, I was browsing through some old recipe files that a co-worker sent me. We were looking forward to the upcoming anniversary of one of the programs we both work for and she thought some of the recipes might be fun to bring back. I was skeptical, but I like recipes, so I started reading. It turned out that she was right and I found quite a few recipes that we have been able to bring back over the past year.

Breakfast recipes my 9-year old can make
Last week Kat shared breakfast recipes that can be made ahead or are quick to make. Today, I’d like to share some breakfast recipes that older kids can make themselves.
Last July I wrote a blog about challenging myself to eat vegetables at breakfast to help me get more veggies in my day. I have to admit, I’ve not done very well at keeping up with that challenge. However, I’m still being mindful of how I can eat more vegetables throughout the day and during meal time. One item I have started buying at the grocery store is chopped salad kits that seem to be the current trend. Even though there have been salad kits around for quite a while, I have never gotten into the habit of buying them. I gave the chopped salad kits a try and it turns out I really like them! Here are a few reasons why:
Our February recipe of the month is Overnight Oats. This recipe makes breakfast time easy and filling. In the evening, you stir together your oats and liquid ingredients, tightly cover the mixture, and leave it in the refrigerator overnight. In the morning, add your favorite toppings and enjoy a great tasting and filling breakfast.
Our March recipe of the month is Vegetable Frittata. We have breakfast for supper once each week at my home, so I use this recipe often. When my children see this recipe on the table, they call it egg pizza because we cut it into triangles when we serve it.
