One of my goals for the new year is to make better breakfasts for my family.
I realized last year that we have gotten into a terrible rut with having cold cereal for breakfast most mornings.
While I do love cereal, I don’t think a steady diet of it is the best thing for our family. My goal is to make non-cereal breakfasts at least five days a week.
On Monday when my husband came in from his morning run, I offered to make Egg McMuffins, but he reminded me that he had a cholesterol test coming up later that morning…not a great day for egg sandwiches.
So I offered oatmeal instead, thinking of the oatmeal packets sitting in our pantry. He suggested real apple cinnamon oatmeal…something I’ve never tried before!
Not being one to turn down a challenge and opportunity to delight my husband, I gave it a go.
He found a recipe on all recipes for oatmeal that we were able to adjust for our family.
Judging by the words of my family, ”Yumm!” and “I want more!”, I am happy to report that my first crack at cooking "real oatmeal" was a huge success!!
My goal of making better breakfasts for my family has also been a success thus far.
I’m trying all kinds of new recipes and some faithful stand-bys as well. One thing that I have done that has helped to keep me accountable in this goal is to tweet and/or facebook our breakfast each morning.
Letting others know of a goal you’re working on and asking them to keep you accountable is always a great way to be successful in meeting your goal!
