Hey everybody! Let’s discuss some awesome Breakfast Side Ideas and why my family is obsessed with breakfast!
First things first, when it comes to breakfast sides, one of our all-time favorites is scrambled eggs!
Now, let’s talk about something sweet to go with our brekkie. Raspberry jam is the bomb! We love spreading that fruity goodness on toast, croissants, or pancakes. It’s like a burst of sunshine in every bite.
And desserts? Oh boy, we are okay with having some breakfast-themed desserts too! Breakfast for dessert is a thing in our house.
Now, let me tell you why we’re big on breakfast. It’s not just about the food (although that’s a massive part!).
Breakfast is like a magical time when the whole family can bond.
Plus, breakfast sets the tone for the rest of the day. When we have a hearty and satisfying breakfast, it energizes us and helps us tackle whatever challenges come our way.
It’s like our secret superpower!
And you know what? Breakfast foods are incredibly versatile. You can go savory with eggs, bacon, and all that good stuff, or indulge your sweet tooth with pancakes, French toast, and the like.
There’s something for everyone, which makes it even more awesome.
So, in a nutshell, breakfast is not just a meal for us—it’s a tradition, a time to connect, and a way to start our day with a smile.
Whether it’s a lazy Sunday morning or a busy weekday, we always find time to savor our breakfast moments together.
Alright, now I’m getting hungry just thinking about it! Time to whip up some scrambled eggs and get that raspberry jam out.
Thanks for the breakfast chat!
Saturday Chitchat with Janine – Volume 129
You know, the family loves breakfast together for many excellent reasons!
First, it’s like a morning ritual setting the day on the right track. Waking up to the smell of coffee brewing and bacon sizzling makes everyone feel warm and fuzzy.
It’s also the perfect time to catch up and bond with each other. We’re all rushing around during the day, so having this chill moment to chat, share stories, and laugh together is priceless.
It’s a chance to hear everyone’s plans for the day and offer advice or encouragement.
Plus, breakfast foods are simply the bomb! It’s like a breakfast buffet party every morning!
And remember the guilty pleasures like donuts or pastries that occasionally appear on the table.
But you know what the best part is? It’s not just about the food but the love and connection that comes with it.
Sitting around that table, we feel like a team, supporting each other and showing that we care.
It creates a sense of togetherness and strengthens our family bond.
Personal Note from Janine
I absolutely love Saturday breakfasts – a special time when I get a break from cooking, and my husband takes charge in the kitchen, preparing his delicious scrambled eggs and fruit yogurt bowls.
It’s a peaceful moment where I can relax, knowing that my week’s work is complete and I can start the day with a lovely breakfast.
This is our chance to catch up with each other and appreciate this uninterrupted moment amid our otherwise hectic week.
I hope you have a routine you love just as much as I adore our Saturdays.
Have a fantastic weekend, and thank you for spending time with me!

This Week’s Tip – How to Tell if an Egg is Fresh
The best way to tell if an egg is fresh is by conducting a water test.
Simply place the egg in a bowl of water; if it sinks and lies flat on the bottom, it’s fresh. If it stands upright or floats, it’s not as fresh and should be used promptly or discarded.
Another method to determine an egg’s freshness is to crack it open onto a plate. If the egg white is runny and lacks thickness near the yolk, it indicates that the egg is old. it’s essential to note that this method is not always foolproof.
