Breakfast is by far my least favorite meal of the day. I would eat a sandwich for breakfast everyday if I could. But when I make the breakfast, I don’t mind eating it as much. This Fluffy French Toast recipe is one of my favorites for breakfast and is a great way to use up all of the leftover Amish Sweet Bread that my family won’t eat.
Not even a year ago I used to be one of those awesome moms who wake up in the morning and make breakfast every morning for their family. I’d still love to do that and still do my best on the weekends but my daughter has basically made mornings painful so to alleviate stress, if I’m going to make breakfast, it has to be after she heads off to school.
My daughter’s room is by far her most favorite room in the house. She hoards and hides all sorts of toys and things in her room and then when we put her to bed, she’ll stay up as long as she can playing. We’ve finally started lights off completely when we put her to bed on a school night which has helped but sometimes waking her up still doesn’t happen until 20 minutes before she’s supposed to leave for school. That would be fine except she needs 15 minutes, at least, to get dressed in the morning. Then she needs about 10 minutes in the bathroom to do who knows what. Then she needs another 20 minutes to eat breakfast. And then another 5-10 minutes to brush her teeth. Finally she’ll slowly walk down the stairs to the front door to get her backpack and if we’re lucky, she can do that in 2 minutes.
Some mornings she wakes up at 6 am, other mornings she’ll wake up at 7:15 am. Least to say, no matter when she wakes up, it’s stressful. I spend most of the morning before she leaves for school saying things like, “You’re going to miss breakfast if you don’t hurry.” “Hurry.” “Okay, finish quickly.” “Finish. Hurry.” “Your ride’s going to be here soon. Go a little faster.” … Hence, I don’t like to make breakfast until she’s off to school.
But when I do, Fluffy French Toast is one of my favorites. It’s so sweet and delicious.
