Each of the three girls help with meal preparation in our house. It makes life sane. Our Japanese exchange student tells Sparkle that she is a CHEF! ;) It is a blessing to know how to cook. I am grateful for their strong desire to constantly improve.
Breakfast: Either six grain mix from Honeyville Grain with coconut oil, peanut butter and bananas OR homemade cream of wheat with raw honey and almond milk or brown sugar along with fruit. We very rarely have cold cereal around here. Not only is it quite expensive, but it is crazy on the glycemic index. (Oh! AND SUPER EXPENSIVE!) We also love our farm fresh eggs! (We have about 20 chickens!) We will do scrambled eggs, cheese and onions and garlic cooked with a bit of cooking oil... with pancakes or french toast with homemade syrup!
