We love routine in our house. It’s part of what keeps us moving steadily when we are on the go all week. On weekends, however, the routine relaxes a bit. No one is awake before 7:30 am. Baby is the earliest riser in the house, and she is followed closely by DH. I am very lucky my husband heads downstairs to get started on breakfast, while I sleep in a bit.
Every weekend DH grabs the big griddle from the top of the refrigerator, gets out his ingredients, and large mixing bowl and makes pancakes from scratch. I said I was lucky y’all. I meant it. I also have absolutely nothing against box mix. We used it before making them from scratch, but DH is so proud of himself, I just go with it. By the time I get up, and grab my cup of coffee, the first batch is made. I jump right in and get the kids their pancakes buttered, cut, and ready for topping. The usual is syrup or powdered sugar, but occasionally, I’ll mix up a special quick glaze that I use for my bundt cakes.
As much as I love the lazy weekends, they aren’t all that way. Sometimes we head out early to an event or even the park in the summer before it gets too hot. When we need the kids fed in a hurry, I grab some Aunt Jemima frozen Lil’ Griddles mini pancakes. They are as delicious as DH’s, because before freezing, every batch is made from scratch. You can taste the quality of their ingredients, and I can see the value when my kids plates are completely empty in the same amount of time that it takes to microwave the mini pancakes.
The new Aunt Jemima frozen breakfast Lil’ Griddles line features three yummy bite-sized options for family fun. My kids love all three – frozen Cinnamon French Toast Sticks, the Blueberry Mini pancakes, and the regular flavor Mini pancakes. We can stack them with fruit or make fun to eat breakfast kabobs. Aunt Jemima frozen breakfast Lil’ Griddles are a big help for parents who want to serve their family a warm breakfast in the morning, just like my own DH would make for the kids. I would say like me, but after what I just confessed, you know I’d be fibbing. 😉
