It’s that time of year again when both public school kids and homeschool families are preparing for the next busy school season. Even if you are a homeschool family, you know from experience that mornings can still be hectic and busy. Something as simple as getting kids a healthy breakfast before they start their studies can be daunting. However, with just a little planning, you really can give your family a yummy breakfast that doesn’t consist of just a quick bowl of cereal.
You really don’t have to be super mom to pull off planning a few breakfast recipes (or lunch and dinner for that matter), and you don’t have to have the “Organized Mom of the Year” award either. To help make it a little easier for you, Build a Menu has provided you with several great recipes for those busy mornings. We’ve even included a slow-cooker recipe that you can put together before bed and have ready when you wake the next morning. And, to make it even easier, we’ve included a shopping list. Our Walmart shopping list is our most popular so we’ve included that one, but we’ve also included an “Any Grocery Store” list that you can use at your favorite store. It’s amazing how just a simple list of recipes and a grocery list can make your mornings run more smoothly. Enjoy!
