In my house, this usually only happens on Saturday and Sunday mornings.
Weekday mornings are spent rushing about, the girls getting ready for school, wolfing down some cereal, while I pack their lunches. I usually don't eat breakfast until I am home after walking them to school.
On the rare occasion we have a few calm moments before heading out the door, I notice we all smile a little more on that morning walk. It seems to set the mood for the day, and it's so much nicer to start the day with a smile, instead of stress.
I was reminded of this when I was given the opportunity to review Eggo Bake Shop™ Twists by Mom Central and Kellogg.
Eggo Bake Shop™ Twists, are microwaveable pastry treats made of soft, pull-apart dough sprinkled with sugar crystals and Strawberry or Apple filling made with real fruit. Here's what the Twofer said:
M, "Mommy these are YUUUUUUMMMMEEEEEE!"
L, "mmmmmmmmmmmmm" as she polished off her strawberry twist faster than I could say "smile!" as in, for a picture.
I tried them as well and the first thing I noticed was the yummy bakery-fresh dough. Then I noticed they were delicious without being overly sweet - something I was concerned about. Just enough filling, but not too much. The sugar sprinkles were just that, sprinkled -not a heavy glaze of icing or anything.I realized as I popped 2 more into the microwave (25 seconds per the directions but I did 40 seconds for two) that a yummy treat would encourage all of us to find the time to sit down for breakfast together - mainly because we'd be fighting over the last Eggo Bake Shop™ Twist - but whatever gets you together, right?
My only suggestions to Kellogg:
I wish the twists were bigger.
I wish there were more than 4 in a box.
I wish they were made with whole grain like the Nutri-grain Eggo Waffles and Pankcakes.
How does your family find time for family breakfasts either during the week or on weekends?
