I sat so cozy in my best set of pajamas, under a fuzzy throw blanket, my feet up, in the reclining position of my favorite sofa. The smell of my over creamed coffee lurking in the air from the nearby end table. I scrolled through the social media channels as I often do in the morning upon waking. I was happy it was Sunday and I was getting to relax. My children all migrated from their bedrooms, each one took a seat on the couch across the room. I could feel the eyes staring upon me. We exchanged "good Mornings" and then I quickly looked back down trying to avoid the dreaded statement that was about to escape from their precious lips. It was all too late and I knew it! I had made eye contact, and before I could blink there it was! "We are hungry!" "What are we going to have for breakfast?"
On the weekends I try and cook my children something warm and fresh, because honestly school is just too dang early and we pretty much eat cold over processed sugar cube cereal every day of the week. I use the weekend to up my mom game, so this morning here is what I came up with.
My children named them the "Yummy Fillers". I knew I had some croissant dough sitting in the fridge from what I thought was going to be a fabulous dinner wreath, but we ended up having $5.00 pizza instead. I opened my refrigerator and peeked around for what other ingredients I could add to my croissant dough.
